I JUST COMPLETED MY TOTAL RESTORATION OF MY 1986 13 SCAMP! I purchased a new spare tire from Northern Tool and a new cover from Scamp. It appears that after only a few days while setting in the garage that the tire and the cover have had a chemical reaction and stained the cover from the inside. I tried to clean the brown dirty looking stain but it appears to be "burnt" into the cover. Has anyone ever experienced this? I have approx. 200 pictures of my restoration, what would be the best way to share them on the forum? I restore Scamps alot better than I use a computer.
Don't you love it when it all comes together?
The stains from compounds in tires
have been a challange for ever-------- UNTIL
Heavy Duty Aluminum Foil !!!
Wrap the tire in foil, slip the tire cover on, and Waaa---Laaaaaaaaa it's done !!!
Any surface of the tire that may come in contact with the cover, must be covered
with foil. Try it, you'll like it.
Good luck with your next project.
