[/quote] Also, Jaye, I looked at your slideshows, and WOW! What amazing work! When I saw the "before" picture of your '84, I wondered about the starting condition of its Ensolite... was the Ensolite itself OK, just the seams that gave you heartache?
Much to my amazement, the ensolite was mostly all intact- just filthy. I did have a couple of places that I had to repair, so I reached in under the sink with a razor blade and chopped off what I could where no one would notice- (and it does not really come off with the backing still attached) but for the little places I need to patch- it worked out fine.
I also used a bit of contact cement here and there. It is an awesome product as long as you have loads of ventilation and don't make any messes or mistakes with it!
A long time ago, when I remodeled my first egg, I tried the syringe trip with some of the carpet that was detached from the ceiling... I did not have a whole of success with it it. Maybe I just had too big of an area to get the glue to spread around on. So I sliced into that with the razor blade too - used the spray glue and then pushed it all back together. It was a lot less noticeable than the carpet hanging down. (It was a Casita- hence the carpet).
Thanks for viewing the slideshow, these little Scamps are my pride and joy!
