That's great! Not many people take the effort to do what you've done, especially if they don't have access to a paint booth, or a friend who works in one, lol. I'm a spray painter by trade (industrial), so painting mine was no problem. Just wish more people did what you've done.

YouTube - '74 Trillium repaint '10 A little better this time!

Great Job!! We have a 1985 Big Foot with some fiberglass damage and cracks.
We are thinking of fixing the damage with fiberglass mess repair and then painting it.
Question: How did you remove the old decals? We have faded brown and orange stripes with a Sasquatch running!

Brightsides worked great for me also. I had no experience and was encouraged by reviews here to take the plunge and I am glad I did. Someone use the baby blue cause that was my second color choice and it would look great. I used those cheap foam brushes for the "tipping" to smooth out the bubbles. I have to do my third and final coat soon.

btw i had to paint right out in the elements. like on the street in front of my house. I have a few small flys in my paint. And I always dusted it off between coats. but for a novice diy im very happy.

anyone know a good supplier for the Interlux paint in BC....specifically around the Fraser Valley, Langley, Abbotsford, Chilliwack areas ??? Want something somewhat local.


Whats the price in BC for a gallon ???

....I assume thats what you need for rolling one of these. Do you thin the stuff with reducer or lacquer thinner? ?

I bought it by the quart, I just remember that it was expensive. You can get it at most marine stores. ( just reailizing that maybe there isnt as many marine stores most places as there is in Nanimo ) I thinned it a bit.

Try www.ippnet.com/locations.html. They have a few brands including Interlux and are not a marine store.

I bought a gallon of white for $109 from Steveston Marine in Langley. This was Interlux Briteside.

I bought a quart of the reducer for $19. To be reduced at 10 % for hand application (roller and tipping with a brush).

I also bought a quart of Interlux Briteside (in "Seattle Grey") for $34 to do the bottom side.

They had primer for $34 a quart as well but I have what need already.

I should have quite a bit of the white left over.

Wow what a great thread, so inspirational. Its convinced me to tackle painting my 72 boler!

Question: do people just mask and tape off everything then roll. Do people remove the belly band on the boler before roller painting?

Has anyone painted the underside of their trailer. My floor is plywood and wondering if I should protect it with a coat of paint?

Please tell me you didn't use silicone.

I've had great results with Dyco C-10 self leveling sealant.

Also, any Latex caulk that does not have "Silicone" anywhere on the label would work for you.

You could use a urethane like ProForm 211
