My restoration of a Boler
B1700 is turning into more of a rebuild. I have stripped it down to a bare shell and begun putting it back together again - reconfigured as a side gaucho. I will post a gallery soon.
My model - a Neonex built 1978 rear gaucho model that had this horrible foam backed, lumpy whitish vinyl insulation that was smelly and covered in black mold. So I stripped it all out, sanded and cleaned the fiberglass and glued in Reflectix insulation using 3M Super 77 spray adhesive. The glue is holding up in some areas but failed in the recent heatwave in others.
Is the 3M 90 adhesive any better? It seems to be hard to source - no one locally (Vancouver BC) carries it and it seems to take 5 - 8 weeks for delivery if anyone will order it in and outrageous shipping costs.
Would it help to paint
or otherwise treat the interior fiberglass before gluing?
I have also purchased from JTS Outdoor Fabrics some Sunbrite foam backed headliner fabric. Assuming I can get a decent adhesive - what do people use for treating / finishing the seams?
