i started to break down the interior taking out the cabnets and benches only to find out in this boler every thing seems to be fiberglassed in not like the other boler i had

on top of that im going to have to replace the flore in this one the wood is all rotten and ya you can see how bad it is

on an up note the insolite walls seem to be in good order just need a good clean and paint

im going to leave in the closit due to it being fiberglased in so im going to have to do thoes repaires inside the boler. (makes it hard to spray)

found alot of rat $%$# not happy but owell
i used an autovacine in the boler befor i started to get rid of any smells bugs or backteral mold in the air so i could work in peace.<_<

ok everyone i lied i took out the closet i wanted to paint it in a booth so i made the extra work lol

good thing though now i can replace the wood that is all roten under it

here are some pics of the new and unique flinstone boler haha

the sections in this boler are all going to be taken out and redone so the frame and the boler can be taken apart
as it sits you have to leave part of the flore with the frame and thats not good enought

the new flore will be 3/4 wood inclosed with fiberglass to insure no more rot on eather side
as well im puting a two part urathane box liner on the bottem for rock and moistur protection called rapterliner made by u-pol retails for 140 a kit and usualy comes with the gun. the kit will do around 125 square feet.

Sorry for the typos. This is a phone with a small keyboard. I make mistakes when tired.

I was pleased to see you are usinf Raptor liner. I just ordered a kit for my pickup bed. I need to get rid of my slippery plastic bed liner if I ever want to buy a truck camper. Everything not ties down slide out the back.

I ordered the Rsptor kit and sprayer, a rubbber bed liner, and a wiring kit a few days ago off of Amazon.

Watch the YouTube videos everyone. This looks like a great product for trailer use. Some people are doing whole cars with it. It seaks up the inner hull on Aluminum boats--I bet it would work great on an Avion or Airstream. And they use it for boat decks too. It looks very durable, seals great."--all at a modest weight penalty.

In any case good luck with it and let us know what you think of it. I should probably start prepping my truck for it now.

We do any Color
The tintable kits come almost completely clear
And all you do is add solvent based tint
We even match colors with a paint camera to get it as accurate as posable
