[/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?

Thanks again!

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!
