Your rebuild is looking awesome. I am just about to seal all my cracks in the roof of my beachcomber. Do you think that product would seal all the cracks or should I be doing the fiberglass repair first and then sealing it will this product? I fixed my sag almost exactly how you did yours.

Its will fix small cracks in the gel coat, but if the cracks are in the fiberglass i would do a full repair

Hi Joshua,
Really appreciate all the detail and photos!
I am renovating a ‘79 beachcomber TM - gutted it.
1) How did you measure for the door supports? I need to replace mine and how did you attach them?
2) How did you attach the new 2x2 side “supports”
3) How did you measure for the ceiling supports and how did you attach them?

4)The floor inside right around my door is sagging - worn out fiberglass. Did you have this problem? How would you fix it?

Thanks!! So appreciate your info!
Teresa in Orego.

Answer re: Door Supports

I can help with the door support details.
In the latter years of production of the BC, the company made a design change to address door frame distortion. They began reinforcing both sides of the opening with a wrought iron brace. I have attached the original drawing of the braces with dimensions as well as an arrangement of the door frame area. Of course the brace need not be made of iron but could be wood or laminated ply.
I hope this helps you.

Painting questions

Hi Joshua, you earlier gave me a lead on the paint you used and i have found a local source in Ontario. I do have a few questions if you dont mind.
Did you prime or base coat with anything before applying the ArmourShield? If so what product and how many coats?
How many coats of Armour Shield did you apply? How much product did you end up buying?
Did you paint the roof with the same product? Underside?
Did you clearcoat over the Armour Shield?
Is the Armour Shield thick requiring thinning in order to spray? If so, what did you thin with?
Thanks in advance.
Mark
