Hi everyone! I’m new to the forum and had posted a couple questions in the advice section a while back about a recently acquired OT camper renovation - and was very pleased with the friendly replies and excellent advice. Since I’m excited about how it’s going and figured you all are probably the only people who would appreciate it, I thought I would post some pics with its progress so far.
I’ll have to say, I figured I would end up painting it, but a good cleaning with simple green and a scotchbrite pad, followed by some Rejuvenate for vinyl and I was amazed how good its looking already. Also, the vinyl gunwales are horribly oxidized (I thought they were aluminum at first), but some wet sanding with a vinegar/water solution followed by the Rejuvenate seems to tame them well.
Anyway, still plenty left to do, but it’s exciting seeing it come out better than I thought. A nice note about Old Town - I was able to buy “Old Town” replacement decals. But after emailing them about getting replacement “camper” decals, they were happy to send a pair out to me free of charge. Nice customer service, for sure
