Some "before" pics of the interior. There was MUCH filling, sanding, filling, sanding.... I was going to do a section at a time when building the cabinets but I thought I'd make a big mess once, get the plywood all sealed up and get the really yucky job done! Now I can just enjoy building cabinets and making everything look nice!! Should have it painted by the end of the week. Stay tuned for the "after" photos

Ok....the "after" photos. Painting the interior is the last of the big, often tedious, jobs!! It is now a blank slate, ready for cabinets which is the fun part!! It's been a long road to get to this point.

Hi Fred, thank you for your very kind words!! Not to be immodest, but now that I'm at this point, I look at my Boler and I have to pinch myself! It's so much more than I originally envisioned! And, you're welcome! I'm happy to share my project

Hello Shanos
That looks awesome and itís encouraging. We have a 74 Perris Pacer that we have gutted and now Iím struggling with what to do on interior surfaces. What is that on your walls? Is there a layer of insulation? Where will you run electrical stuff if this is the final surface? So many questions. Your cabinets are great. I will be doing the same as ours were thrashed.
Canít wait to see the rest .

Hi Patrick, happy to answer your "lots of questions"!
If you go back to page 3 of my thread, that's where the posts about the insulation and wall covering begins. I have 1" "ribs" made up of 4 layers of bending plywood with spray foam insulation between them. On top of that I glued pieces of 3 mm bending plywood called Lite Ply cut and fit (see pages 6 and 7). This was a tremendous amount of work! Before I put the "ribs" in I glued lengths of flexible conduit with "junction boxes" at each end to run electrical wire after the paneling was up (see posts 60 and 61). This is what I'm doing right now and it's worked very well! I'll post some pics once I'm finished working with my friend who is an electrician.
You should also look at the threads by Robert Johans. He's done some renovations from bare shells (1974 Boler Resto. Oops, I did it again...) He glues Reflectix on the shell for insulation and uses blocks to attach cabinets. He uses a fabric on top of the Reflectix. You can check the details in my post as to why I didn't end of doing that. Robert also renovated a Perris Pacer...see 1982 Perris Pacer Renovation
I hope that helps Patrick!
Cheers,
Shannon
