Well that is what this form is all about information and tips. Im glad i was able to help you out with something cause your project looks really awsome. Its accaully kinda funny hue with the project im doing, i havent started anything yet cause were camping in the boler this year before my wife has our first child so she didn't want me starting it this summer . So im parking it this fall and starting the resto project then. Iam just getting all my info so when i start there's no hesitation and i know exactly what i want to do and i'll know it will work cause i have done all my inquiring. i still dont know whats best for the cupboards. your project just gets me antsy and i look forward to your recent post.

Just got back from Ness Creek. To have the boler ready I had to go a little nuts for a bit to get things ready on time. Not so much finished but good enuf to take on the first trip.

So I had to finish the wiring put in the stove attach the sink and faucet, finish the cooler , pack the wheel bearings ( yes it is an easy job, but I never would have tried it without the info I was able to find on this site)

Got the closet door finished with two glass cupbpard doors frim Habitat for Humanity. I like being able to see in the closet ( the glass is crackled), and I like being able to open the doors separately.

The trip went well, the FF worked great, and I went with the solar panel only to charge up the batteries.

Anyway here are a few photos of giving an partial overview of what I have been able to get to

What I decided to do was to put a light coat of bondo over the wood, to fill all the grain. The jury is out until I paint them this coming week as to how well it worked....
Wish I'd seen this earlier. Would have sent it to the guy doing our front end renos. Was it difficult spreading the bondo over the wood? What type of paint did you use over the bondo? Is it 'wearing' well?

People here have recommended melamine paint for painting fiberglass. It's a really thick viscous paint. Might be perfect for painting the wood to loom like fiberglass.

I'm anxious rinse how everyone's turns out. I plan on doing the same

Hi Flatlander! We bought a Boler and are renovating it with some similar ideas to yours. Do you have finished photos of your Boler - especially the interior? Sure would love to see them!

Cheers!
