LOVE the paint job. What are you going to cover the new insulation with?

I used reflectix. It's been really easy to work with. Glued up with 3m 77 and contact cement.

Thanks for sharing the progress!
What did you use for removing carpet foam from the shell?

Did you do anything with the windows? My 1981 will definitely need window work, and I'm wondering if anyone's figured out what brand the really old Casita windows are, etc.

I used elbow grease and a scraper to get the foam off. I sanded the rest off the best in could.

The windows I took out cleaned them. I put back in sealed with butyl tape
