Re: 1990 Carpenter Cadet- bike hauler camper

In my opinion, it would be best to have the fuel fill line shield in place.. you dont have to use the original one, you can make your own of you choose. The reason is that if you ever have to remove the fuel tank, you might need a little room for the fill line, in the removal and instillation process. Its not likely you will remove the tank, but it's possible.

The cheap acrilic enamel for equipment from the industrial finishes place, is good paint. Not only that, you can buy a dark color, and some white and make blends of dark to light, and you can buy clear coat and gradually mix more and more clear in to make a shiny and durable surface that will last for years. We painted one of my friends Suburban that way as a test 8 years ago, and it still looks like a basecoat-clearcoat job with no peeling or paint problems. This vehicle is in east salem.

You can also buy the paint online at the paint for cars place - either on ebay, or their site. I have bought many gallons of the red colors, because it is a lot cheaper than industrial fininshes - even with shipping. the paint for cars stuff is also good. We have painted many trailers and two drag race cars with it, and clear coated the cars as we did the final coats.
