Yes, maybe we should sell the excess in mason jars at our next rally. I think a Mason Jar is enough for 2 coats- what are they 16 oz?

I assume you want pictures of the rig and not the towel. This is the rig after two coats. In the morning I'll take the picture after 4 coats. Tonight my neighbor came over and asked me to do her truck cap.

We sold our Bounder yesterday. It should be gone by the weekend. Shortly there will be only one rig in the yard.

Four Coats

I've now got four coats. Since this picture I have given the bumper box and propane tank four coats as well. Though the bumper box does not shine like the Scamp body becaue it's a rippled surface it's definitely shiny.

Now no surface will go uncoated. Next the battery box.

Perhaps, but you'd have to grow your toe nails long or you might slide out of bed!

Front Shot

I better change the direction before I have to moderate myself.

Here's a shot of the front. You can see the tongue in the reflection, particularly if you double click on the picture. As well I did the propane tank and the tongue. No choice Ginny was not compliant.

I found the floor sealer dries really quick (in our arid climate) so I'm apply to apply multiple coats in fairly quick succession. I'll post some pics as I make some progress.
Hi,I was a h-depot and was not sure what kind of Zep to buy? The sealer or the finish? Do I just put it on and let it dry or do I buff it? I'm new to this but would like to give it a coat or two before winter. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks, St

The Finish and make sure you camper is "CLEAN" "CLEAN" "CLEAN" then put 3 to 4 coats on with a micro cloth, very thin coats by the time you get all the way around the camper it will be dry and you can keep going around it...You should read post #239 in this thread it explains the process very well..............

Perfect, I will get on it asap! Is there a BKF type cleaner available in Canada, did a quick search and seems you can get it at some stores up here, but I didn't recognize any of them... Stu

Stu - I used Spray Nine and a green Scotchbrite scrubbie. The Spray Nine kills all the mildew, etc. and the Scothbrite removes the oxidation. As to which Zep, I am 99% sure I used the "Wet Look Floor Finish".

Yesterday, we pulled into the sani-dump at Bow Valley Provincial Park near Canmore, and pulled in behind a Bigfoot fifth wheel - my wife says "Well, at least we can admire someone else's Bigfoot while we wait". The people in the truck pulling the 5th wheel jumped out (her with a notepad in hand) and said "How did you make yours so SHINY?". We had a good chat while we waited.

I applied it with a micro fiber carwash mit I bought at our Dollar Store.I had my hands in regular Rubber Gloves so as not to coat them!
I can see that by next year this time,every Fiberglass trailer in North America is going to so SHINEY that it will be dangerous to drive on the roads!!!
I poured the RED MAX into an old liquid dish soap container with the pop-up cap (after washing all the soap out carefully of course ) as it is alot easied to pour it onto the applicator-glove that way rather than pouring it out of the large container.
Regretably,we just sold the Boler,as at 66 (next month ),we've decided to do our camping at the HOLIDAY INN.I'm sure the RED MAX had something to do with the new owners choosing our Beauty.Lovely young couple and I'm sure they'll have many happy years of Bolering in this Beauty.
