That looks great! what about the interior--did you use a solvent to scrape off the old wall covering? My knuckles are bleeding from scraping the interior of my Scamp and there are just some areas I can't get un-stuck!

I did try everything I could think of and ended up using a stiff scrub brush and Varsol solvent. Don't know if the product has the same name everywhere but it is a petroleum based solvent that is also used as a paint thinner sometimes. It took a long time and made me very sore but I got enough of it off in the end.

Paint job is awesome! We really want to get ours painted, but neither of us have any knowledge of how to etc-probably will have to hire someone that knows what they are doing-I would hate to spend all that $$ and mess it up! Keep the pictures coming!

Correction

I seem to have read your post incorrectly. I didn't remove the ensolite from the walls of my Boler. I just cleaned it, primed and painted. The problem I had was adheasive everywhere that was left after someone had covered the entire interior with carpet.

Bargman L-400 Key Information

Back when I was preparing to start work on my Boler I bought an L-400 lock on ebay to replace the one that came with the trailer. There were no keys for that one and I thought that would be a problem. I was looking around the other day and came upon a post on another forum that mentioned getting keys made at Head's Lock and Key Works here in Calgary. I dropped by with my old original lock and asked if they could help me. Five minutes later I walked out with two new keys. They cost me $10.24 for the pair.
The blank used is an ilco K1122D BN1. Obviously readily available. And no, the lock is not for sale, at least not yet. My son's 73 Boler has a very worn and insecure lock on it that needs to be replaced.

Now Completely LED

I just received a replacement for the 1003 bulb in my porch light and the 67 bulb in the license plate light. I looked at of the options for the BA15 base bulbs at Superbrightleds and decided on the circuit board with 30 warm white leds and the BA15 base with a connector for the pcb. I am very pleased with the result.

Completely LED Continued

The #67 bulb in my old Grote license plate light was the last incandescent bulb in the trailer so when I noticed that it had burnt out I decided to go LED. I purchased a 67-W15 (1156 Base 15-LED Cool White) replacement for it. It has nine LEDs in the top and 6 more mounted radially. It is plenty bright enough as can be seen in the pictures.

New Awning

I made a new friend at Alberta Tent and Awning here in Calgary. I ordered a track awning last Thursday and it was ready for pickup on Monday. It is 7x7 feet and came with three adjustable poles for the front edge. They provided nice bags for the poles, ropes, stakes (all included) and the awning itself. I asked them to add pockets in the corners and velcro straps in the centre to accomadate flexible tent rods to add some structure and they did that at no extra charge. I have not picked up rods yet because I need the exact measurement across the diagonal between corners. All of the parts appear to be of very good quality and the fade resistant fabric is just the right weight. I will post more pictures when I have it on the trailer. It is going to snow here tomorrow so that will have to wait. My thanks to Kevin61 for directing me to Alberta Tent and Awning.

Wow that awning is awesome. How much did it cost you? I need to get one for our Boler.

What is the part number for the water faucet? I live it. Is it in the parts section or plumbing section of Canadian Tire?

Great work, love the fabric and colours. It has given me a few ideas to think about with my trailer project

I can't wait to see the awning set up on the Boler! So beautiful and such an inspiration!

My muscles are aching from all the work I've done on mine. I hope it turns out half as good as yours (since it's half the trailer yours is, LOL!).
