I've been finding lots of forlorn rv's all over the place. I just scored a supposedly functional Coleman rooftop unit with heat strip for a mere $40. Gonna test it out this weekend. For the money I was willing to gamble.
I haven't been posting much on here lately. Found some temp work. I'm applying Coal Tar Epoxy to the hulls of luxury houseboats at a marina. Sanding and swabbing decks too. Terrible, hard work in the sun, but it paid for my new 60 gallon 2hp Compressor. Ahh no more Bostitch mini pancake. No more aerosol cans of paint either. Will be using my two new paint guns. Just cheapo Kobalts but so much of an improvement!
The aircraft stripper has made short work of all the asphalteum tar on the underside of the roof. We brushed and sprayed it on, let it work its volatile magic, and scraped the goop right off. We let that sit until the stripper dries for a few days and it comes off easily with a wire wheel on a drill.
Sorry I don't have any pics, I've been balls to the wall busy. Feels good, but the coal tar epoxy has me wishing I'd been more careful with application!
Boats are just rv's that float.
I may have a line on a sweet motherlode stash of houseboat window take-outs.
I may actually have found some "shop space" that I can use for the long term and may even be able to help out some others if this goes well.
Good things goin on!
