I was thinking....

I have to tear down the walls/roof etc in my 66. I can't reseal the roof till it warms up. But what I was wanting to do is rubber undercoat the inside of the aluminium of my 66. It will help me if a few ways.

It will water proof from the inside
I can apply on cooler days
It will make rain/hail less loud
buy me some time to work on my rig (let me work on it)

I was going to do it all, I will foam board still for insulation. Any reasons not to do this?

If you can get it to stick. What are you planning on for the rubber undercoat?

I'm with Ron, you're going to have a clean, prepped surface in order to get the undercoat to 'stick'. Check with a local paint store about what will work best to clean the inside surface. As well, there may be temperature restrictions about applying this. The aluminum will be as cold as your outside temp.....
Beyond that, I don't see any reason why you can't do what you're considering.

I was going to do the ceiling, the seams and the cabover area. I will look into the temp/application more closely. I have used it to line inner wheel wells and such on many a car. Never had any issues. But I will look and see now. Thanks for the heads up!

That's exactly what we did years ago no our first motor home. It spent the winters near the beach in Florida and had many spots that had pin holes, I took down the ceiling and undercoated the underside of the roof. It worked and no more leak...

AWESOME!!! That is what I love to hear. Any tips/ pictures from that project? Did you use a spray or roll on?

Sounds like a good idea.
If you're using just regular old automotive rubberized undercoating, don't worry about getting it to stick, that stuff will adhere to just about anything.

Sorry no pics, that was twenty years ago. Phobos is right the undercoating sticks to anything rather you want it to or not... If I were doing it today I would go over the outside with Eternibond tape followed with Dicor sealer on top of using the undercoating on the inside. Forgot to say, I used the roll/brush on...
