The bladder idea is a good one for hot water. I have always been a tent camper so washing is an option especially in the desert, otherwise the lake or trout stream works for me but I dream of hot springs most nights.

It's in my driveway now.

On my old Dodge van, I painted it orange. With Tremclad. And a roller.
It turned out surprisingly well.
Then I brushed a black skull onto the hood.

I think your project needs similar attention.

Did I mention that 33" tires will fit with just a few minutes of time, a recip saw and complete lack of respect for fenders?

Check out some paint by Interlux. I used it to refinish a pool slide and it is awesome and holds a nice shine.

Not sure if it's the same stuff but Brightside by Interlux works great. I just sprayed a whole car with it and it came out good (I'd say "great" but it was my first time doing a whole car... it came out good.) No need for clear coat, holds a nice gloss, it's boat paint so it holds up well to water. I recommend it.

Guys,
Spent the day up on the roof hating the skylights leaks(melting ice due to warm weather), they will go.

Trimmed out the back end which made the sag to the right look worse.
If it bugs me too much the saws all will come out for a radical backassectomy.

Pisses me off that I didn't take more time and care to get things square but that's the reason for posting this cautionary tale for others.

Thanks for the paint ideas.

Does anyone know about spray foams. If it were possible I'd spray the roof on the outside to seal it tight and leave it.

Does anyone know if foam can take the UV or alternatively paint.
I could paint it a light color or metallic for protection?


I tell myself I am headed for the desert with a bucket of tar and a broom, a paint roller, paint and MY MOTORCYCLE.

How good does it have to be Bill?
bill

The spray foams aren't meant for direct sunlight. At least none of the ones I used were. We've used several to try to reseal holes in semi trailers, and it degrades fast in sunlight.

That being said, if you're trying to seal outside, there are several better options. There is some stuff we use that is more of a liquid rubber, and it holds up awesome, but its a little more expensive. I'll look on Monday and see what its called.

I used it on the roof of my '73 Dodge van. Covered it up with that Permabond tape I mentioned a while back. It would degrade pretty quick in full UV exposure. This was just some standard expanding spray from the hardware store.

Started with this:




Sprayed foam wildly:




The only thing holding my roof on was the crossbeams... the foam you see here was sprayed from the inside




Remember the Permabond tape I mentioned? Here it is:

Hey Nophix, that would be great.
Ghosty , you foamed it good, thanks for the pics.

I figured the spray stuff wasn't meant for exterior but something will work, I can just imagine that spray foam with a liquid neoprene driveway sealer over the top of it.

Oh boy, double coverage, double ugly.

Spray foam isn't bad. I have helped repair cars with it in the past. When the quarter is rotted out, use duct tape to fill the hole and pull the remaining metal back into place. fill the inside with spray foam. Remove duct tape and apply Bondo, mix up a gallon at a time is fine. Carve the body lines back in with a belt sander. Finish sand and paint. Ran that way for years. Only problem is when someone hits that quarter panel and the bondo chips off. Good thing is when you run that much it just comes off in one big chunk. Makes fixing it again easy.

A buddy of mine bought an older 442 Oldsmobile and when he removed the old vinyl roof discovered that the vinyl was holding the rusted and rotting roof together. He took down the headliner filled the roof with spray foam and then bondo'd and re-painted it, looked great and appeared solid when done.

Loving this RV build, good stuff!

If you do the foam thing, get the applicator with the screw-in cans. It will pay for itself in just a few cans from not wasting so much foam and the ability of turning down the volume....! You'll like it so much that you will fill in the walls, that will hold it together real good.
