3/2/2019 Poor Man’s Fiberglass

I started a new phase in the camper this morning. Skinning. I’m using a technique called “poor man’s fiberglass” which involves canvas or bed sheets and paint or glue. I chose canvas and paint, specifically Glidden Gripper. I tackled what I think is the hardest section first, the tapered front end. In the pictures you can see the canvas and paint on the top front. Next is that same piece of canvas anchored behind the rigid foam. The anchor is probably not really necessary but I had a gap that would collect water so I’m filling the gap and securing the canvas the will take the brunt of the wind. Finally while I had the can open I put canvas on the front hatch. I picked up a $10 paper coverall from HD before I started which should last me for a while. Once covered a few layers of cheap paint will go over this and then some better paint.
