Hi Robert

amazing job, i had a question about the paint.
Did you put the slick sand primer right on the fiberglass or did you have to use anything first? also which type of paint did you use after the slick sand primer?

thanks
Andrew

Thanks, everybody...

Andrew, I have my trailers painted by professional auto body men, so I don't know all the exact details. However, yes, the Slicksand (awesome product!) is applied directly to the carefully prepped (i.e. sanded and cleaned) fiberglass.

The lacquer paint on top is "Diamont Arctic White;" the bottom, "Diamont Bamboo Pearl" to match my wife's car. The bottom is also coated with "Raptor" tintable truckbed liner to protect against road debris.

Robert-

Can you show us a photo of how you setup the rooster latch inside of your doors and how their position relates to the "finger holes". I really like the look of that setup-- and of course the idea that doors won't open on rough roads.

Thx

High Density RV Seal / Hulliner

Robert,

Could you share what high density RV rubber/seal you are using between the frame and body on your project? Is it the foamy stuff that is used to eliminate drafts in house windows (such as made by M-D Building Products) or something else entirely? I'd like to use something like that on my Boler to eliminate body damage that was caused by the original frame.

Having a hard time finding anything that would not compress totally flat. I am wondering if the kind of seal used under truck canopies would work, such as this one here.

***
On another note, I got samples of Scamp's wall covering and three colors of the much mentioned Hulliner (Hull Liner, Headliner). We really like the Hulliner in light gray, as seen here, but I can't find it under $19 per yard, which is kind of steep compared to Scamp's offering. Have you been able to find it cheaper somewhere?

Appreciate your help always.

Slav

Sorry, Ryan, no photos of the rooster catches. But I can tell you that that they are centered with the finger holes, about an inch to one side or the other. Poke a finger in, then curl to open the rooster, and pull! Simple. BTW, if a drawer or cabinet is oriented to my left side, I use my left hand. Therefore, the rooster is on the right of the hole. When oriented to the right, I move the rooster to the left of the hole.



Slav,Yes, I used the same foam seal as for camper shells.

For Hulliner, try PerfectFit.

Hi Robert,
I have truly enjoyed reading and viewing this post. It has me wanting to do a complete rebuild myself. Just one question, where did you put the battery?
Thanks,
Daniel
