Delaminated front panel repair

Iím not sure yet if this is water damage or what Iíve seen referred to as oil canning caused by exposure to the sun. I didnít see any obvious sealant issues, but resealed anyway. The trailer is parked facing west and gets full sun every afternoon. Iíll know soon.

I just secured a warehouse space to get it in out of the weather and plan to open it up to repair whatever I find that needs repairing. My guess is the substrate under the filon has either disintegrated or has separated from the filon or framing or both. Iím hoping the filon has not stretched as itís bubbled and will adhere flat against the new underlayment.

What will I find when I start peeling it off? How difficult will it be? What should I use to replace the underlayment? How do I attach/adhere everything back on?

Last year I repaired the delaminated flooring under the vinyl, caused by a bad seal around the front feed through hatch. Fortunately, with patience, I was able to retain the original vinyl flooring and you canít tell there was ever a problem. My goal is to restore the original look and structural integrity of the nose panel. Iím just not sure what Iím up against.

Have any of you tackled a similar problem? Love to hear suggestions.
