I am new to the forum and have just purchased a 1988 13' Burro
, the frame, axle
looks in good shape ( drove it 900 miles to be sure), new tires
(now with 900 miles on them), the outer shell has a few spider web hairline cracks (opinions on how to repair?) the inside walls look pretty good, few former holes and scratches, stove is intact but needs a cleaning, sink looks ok, icebox is ok, cushions are in good shape, though I wont be using them I want to use memory foam and new upholstery. The carpet on the floor, walls, and ceiling, I ripped out first thing as I hate carpet. I will replace it with automobile vinyl upholstery
The bad news is there is some floor rot, from the door to the curb side rear, I cut the fiberglass
floor out today, and removed all the rotten plywood the remainder is wet but not rotted yet, so I am drying it out and will see how it looks before removing more.
I was planning to replace the plywood and then re-fiberglass over it, layering it until I get it as high as the flanges on the closets, cabinets and storage boxes tying them all together using the fiberglass
. After sanding the floor I would like to just paint
floor, perhaps with the epoxy type paint
used on garage floors I did my garage once it turned out great and held up great. I would like thoughts on this approach?
The plan is to paint
it candy apple red to match my 66 Mustang convertible, change the taillights, running lights
, add interior 12v LED lighting
, add a 12 v battery
oh and the name:
(the red ass)
