just another reason why I don't live in Florida. Sticky tar.

I actually lived in Jacksonville for a short stint, and my parents currently live in St. Augustine...too hot, too flat, and too many old people for me.

You should bring your bus to Colorado, I'll let you borrow my wire wheel.

Someone enlighten me: What's the reason for removing ceiling tar? Why not just leave it since you're going to insulate and panel over it anyway? And what is this tar... Just adhesive to keep the stock insulation in place?

Its a sound deadener/adhesive/pain in my arse.
Removed mine because it traps condesation between the metal and itself causing rust and stink.

the rust under the tar

So, the tar is out. I started working on it yesterday late morning and was running into the same problem that most of you were having. It was heating up just enough to start splattering and creating a mess. I then realized that I had been grinding it off in the evenings well away from peak heat for the day of 70ish.

I got frustrated with the last 3 panels (passenger rear wall sections) and decided to take a roadtrip. Theres a 5 Star RV SuperCenter that has a load of new and used parts just northeast of Denver...I was originally headed there, but called at 2:40 and they were closing at 3:00. Bummer...maybe next weekend. Instead, I tripped down to Loveland which is about a 50min drive down the canyon and stopped at Home Depot.

I filled up a cart with a bunch of goodies and quickly realized I wasn't going to be able to fit all of it in my Tacoma.





Fortunately, my friend from Estes was down getting brakes put on her Tundra. So I called her and we loaded up the truck. I bought her a beer for the help.



This morning I went fishing with a buddy of mine. I didn't catch anything but, I did see this dick shaped rock and watch him get caught up in the trees.




Other than that, pretty uneventful weekend. Now with most of what I need to insulate the floors, walls, and seal the windows back, I hope it'll motivate me to hurry along before the snow hits.

Cheers,

Matt

I forgot to add a couple things....

This I got for free.99:



This is going to be my entire kitchen, I'll build cabinets beneath it and use the outer sinks for storage. I'm going to put some nice wood slabs over the dry racks/outer sinks.

Anybody want to take a guess what this is for?:



Winner gets 10 points.

Sweet sink.

Reminds me of mine.

Mine is just one big VS three small.
