I haven't been including specific brands thus far as I figured most people would want to follow the tracks of someone on the forum with more experience, but thus far the ones that I can recall of note include:
- Mold/mildew cleaner - WET & FORGET Moss, Mold, Mildew and Algae Stain Remover
- Rust remover - Krud Kutter Rust Remover and Inhibitor
- Primer - Rust-Oleum Self-Etching Primer
- Paint - Rust-Oleum Semi-Gloss Protective Enamel
- Fiberglass repair (thus far) - Bondo Glass Reinforced Fiberglass Filler and Bondo All-Purpose Fiberglass Resin
I must admit I was a little unsure about how the fiberglass patching was going to go having never done it before, but found it extremely easy and made a lot of progress this afternoon. I got all of the major holes filled in, as well about half of the secondary patches on all of the fastener holes I had previous filled. Here's a couple representative pictures:
While working I discovered some additional damage in the shell where the floor meets the wall on all four corners, basically sections like this that had caved in I assume because the shell had so much play without the solid sub-floor to keep it steady:
Having the shower stall worked in my favor, I cut some curved sections which I'll put over top of a layer of fiberglass cloth/resin which I hope will give each corner some additional strength in addition to just sealing things up (this is just a test fitting):
Once I get the rest of the interior floor work done I'll make a pass with fiberglass filler on the outside of the larger holes just to get them completely sealed and flush, after that I plan on slathering on a layer of Kilz then should be ready to install some new sub-flooring. Lots left to do!!
