Scamp restoration and mods

Here's a link to photos of the work and progress to my Scamp since I bought it almost a year ago. I've done a few things to it. Just added the fantastic vent on the 4th. Check it out. Scamp web album

It was not fun to remove. The epoxy had seeped deep into the fabric and had to be cut out. I still need to fix the front wall fabric.

3M rubbing compound and Nufinish. That 3M stuff took off so much oxidation. It was amazing.

It's just wiped on then wiped off after it dries to a haze. I used a power buffer to apply it in a nice even coating. I've used it on my vehicles for years.

Thanks. Will have to try that out. I read some reviews after reading your response. The reviews seem to agree with you. It did say to make sure you get read of the oxidation really well first (as you said to use the 3M stuff) because if you didn't, results wouldn't be good.

great job on the scamp Justin


Could you give me some details on the leds in the fan area? How did you get power to them? Is the switch for them on the trim of the fan or somewhere else? Or are they battery operated? thanks suger

The LEDs are 12v flexible strips that are made for under cabinet mounting.
They are the warm white variety and are nice and bright.
The have a 3M adhesive and can be cut to what ever length. I bought an 8ft strip off of ebay for $28. I There is a 2ft strip under the front upper storage and a 2ft under the galley side upper storage and then 3 1ft sections on 3 sides of the vent.

I ran new wiring under the rat fur and insulation for all of them to the new power center/converter. So they will run whether it's plugged into AC or off the battery. The switches are on the cabinet upper middle.
I made a recessed area on the custom cabinet where I can put the switches.
