Glad you guys dug up and bumped a 5 year old thread as the resto-mod-Mario is super cool! I wonder if he ever did Luigi?

Prepare to be disappointed, it's not really themed at all... It has red curtains.

The insulation is not well adhered to the outer shell and is shrinking. As such the spray on bed liner used to coat it is now cracking. I think the fellow I bought it from did his best to cope with the issues, there is lots of silicone spackled on the worst of the cracks.

If you pull the drawers out from under the sink you can see the insulation is not sticking to the shell. What makes this more worrisome is that the fiberglass cupboards have been glued with auto-body adhesive to this insulation.

The interior which was originally grey has been repainted white at some point and was not well masked from the window frames.

The door has sagged which I know is common. When the door is latched closed, it is still offset from the body about 1cm. The door hinges are a bit wonky, the door only opens about 80 before it gets really stiff and the FG starts to creek.

I'm not overly worried about anything, I'm a pretty handy guy and will get it fixed up. This forum has lots of good information. I have been Oogling some of Roberts work and another called "Buttercup Boler"

I can tell already that these bolers are full of red herrings and nuances and I will perhaps start a new thread with each issue to keep things organized.

The dropbox photo album below has photos that the seller e-mailed to me as well as some photos I took last night.

https://www.dropbox.com/sc/0hzu0ok1vdelkj3/TbAj6mXw-7

I mean no disrespect to Siris or the fellow I bought it from in pointing out these issues, I still feel a little bit bad hijacking the original thread to display the problems. I only post it here, like this, in case someone finds this thread and thinks it's a great idea to spray bed liner over the insulation.

This poster comes to mind. (jokingly - still no disrespect.)

Jason,
Not hijacked at all! We all followed this resto with rapt attention and it's great to see "the rest of the story" so to speak. Like you say, the problems are not the end of the world and you'll have a lot of fun with it. And the exterior paint job is always going to be a conversation starter
Best, Phil
