Not much to report overall on the renovation and freshening up of our Bounder. But a few small updates that add up to a few more jobs off the ever growing list of things to do!!!
First off the original drapes in the windshield weren't doing much for sun stopping and our old sunshades had bit the dust, for the moment we couldnt see buying one of the more expensive outside sunshades, instead found "blackout drapes" from walmart. Heavy white cotton drapes that do indeed block out "All sun and heat" for a fraction of the cost
Plus they fitted straight on the existing drape track,also covering the dash vinyl from the sun.
Next up the old barman assist handle and light needed replacing, original lense had desintigrated over time and the light switch was dead. With some new putty tape, new shiny screws a new handle now lights the way at night. Looks very nice during the day, amazing what a new shiny handle can do to the overall look of the coach.
Last but no means least after a bath the "Beast" looked better, but have now started to compound the gelcoat fiberglass body. After reading about a member on here and another rv forum who used a certain type of compound/polish just had to give it a try. 3M compound & color restorer , does a fantastic job as the beasts beige gelcoat had totally dulled down looking like it was painted with a matt finish.
Will have to get one of those electric polishers the auto industry uses, will make the job of polishing the 34 foot monster a whole lot easier!!
Heres a shot of the blackout drapes now in place ,after the bath and
the small start at compounding the fiberglass,note the shine V the matt finish.
