Re: Low buck projects- Let's see 'em!

Edel 665 came with cheesy grass like wall paper that had fallen off / turn moldy, was dusty.

I pulled it all off (except for 1/4 berth where there is a leak I need to fix). Wire brushed the foam residue off so that I was down to the original red fiberglass.

My original plan was to use cork rolls but I am glad that they were more expensive than the 2x3 foot panels. Although you can see the joints there is no way that the rolls would have been practical to work with and glue.

I used Lepages construction adhesive. It was a pain because no matter how big I made the hole in the tube it was a battle for my caulking gun to squeeze it out. I considered spray but xnayed that when I read that you had the added step of letting it set up and get tacky.

Cork was <$60. 2 x tubes of glue was < $25.

I will finish off the top edges with caulking. The bottoms will get covered by mattresses.
