78 Scamp: Renovations Complete! (Almost)

So my husband has been very busy. He has done an excellent job. We still have a few finishing touches, which I talk about on my blog: Scamp Camping.
But those things are small and cosmetic. She looks fantastic and we are ready to go camping in our pretty little egg!!

Very bold and classy. Nice work! Love the backsplash. What is it made of?

Thanks for the compliments! The backsplash is a self stick metal tile from Home Depot. My husband had to use a separate adhesive just to make sure that the tiles would endure movement and heat (we live in the south). So far, we are very pleased with the results.

Hi! I just bought my 192 Borrow so I'm starting to tweak it. I'm missing brackets to attach the table to the walls. Do you have any idea where to get some? I'm considering just buying a small collapsible table as a last resort. Your egg looks beautiful!

Hi again! My egg is an 1982 (not 192). How did your husband paint fiberglass?

Lfoxmont: As far as the table brackets go, the type we have can be ordered through the Scamp website, table bracket. I don't know much about the Burro, but I did a quick internet search. The pictures I saw of the Burro show a 3 sided dinette. The Scamp (ours at least) is only 2 sided and the table mounts to the back wall under the window. I am not sure if a modification can be made to make the bracket work for the Burro, but I am sure someone on this forum could tell you.
To paint the interior fiberglass,it was first lightly sanded with fine grit sandpaper. Then wiped down with mineral spirits. Next a self-etching primer was applied (this was in a spray can) to the benches. The benches were removed and prepped outside. We didn't want to remove the cabinets or closet so these were prepped inside and we did not want to spray this inside the camper. 3 coats of Bullseye Zinsser 1-2-3 primer were then applied by an ultra smooth foam roller. Finally, 3 coats of Rustoleam semi-gloss patio furniture paint was also applied using a smooth foam roller.
