Their are many pictures and posting about restoring Bolers on this site.
Good luck.

Well I finally made some good headway. The interior is stripped and I got a new axle w/brakes from Paul N. that is being installed next weekend.

I plan on installing Reflectix followed by marine fabric. The PO stripped out 90% of the ensolite then painted over the glue residue with what I believe is a latex paint. My question is, will reflectix bond to the painted surface with the proper glue? If so, what glue would you recommend? I live in SW Ontario where we get extreme heat to extreme cold.

Cheers

The glue will stick to the paint, the question is how well will the paint stick to the fiberglass. If the surface of the fiberglass was not cleaned well there could be oils and waxes on the surface which will cause the paint to fail. I would personally strip the paint off since you have already gone this far.

Good advice from Ian, won't take much to remove the bulk of it with a DA sander.

Sorry, dual action, I've only seen air driven units but there may be electric models also. It would be easier if you googled it than me trying to explain it. They work very good.

Orbital sander would work well with the interior curves. Black and Decker makes a reasonably priced one with an air filter.
