Hi Sam, Do you still have the old stuff? Ours was all wrinkled, crinkled and covered with gunk. We thought it was a complete loss. Then I read here somewhere about boiling it. I got out our canning pot and gave it a crack. They came out as clean and flat as... well I'm sure better than new. You might want to give it a try.

Dan

thanks for your input, but it no longer has the original molding.
The previous owner put this duct tape looking stuff up and now
it is pretty much falling off

Would some kind of floor trim work?
Maybe like these 2 kinds.

Question

I just came across your post and was hoping to find out how this project went for you.

I just purchased a "77 Surfside and most of the seam tape is gone. i want to replace it. and was wondering about what type of tape to use and how to prepare the surface for application (removing the old adhesive residue - I want to be sure I don't damage the existing wall covering).

the tape I got off ebay wasn't wide enough, so I ended up getting a textured vinyl close to same color and texture of walls and cut the material into about inch and a half strips.l then used contact cement to glue them onto seams , I just left old residue on seams as it would have been too much work removing
hope that helps

Hey Terry, have you seen this post: New Int. Ensolite Seams Done! ?

I'm in a similar situation and am planning on going this route.

I did the same thing in my SurfSide. I used paintable elastomeric caulking and a textured roller. I filled the gaps with caulking and then rolled it. After it dried I painted the entire interior. It turned out OK and better than seams that the previous owner had filled with every possible product.
