  1. Haha no not 5 minutes! Just finished the 4th coat of main colour video to upload soon, had a long break due to new baby and bad weather, trying to get cracking now it’s been a year next month!
  2. Part 4: sanding the filler is done Sanded with 120/240grit discs not much else to say :p
  3. Part 3: Filling is done I used tetrosyl 2k filler as it can be used on aluminium and plastic next is sanding the filler
  4. Take a look at my thread about Avondale heron 1978 doing a full renovation/restoration severely damp walls patch of floor needed replacing and currently in painting stages
  5. Someone had bodged my heron door, I would take door out and put full new timber In especially if it’s the hinge side of the door. you may find some of my thread helpful
  6. Next part 2: sorting out the stress cracks in the grp edges of the roof and also nailing the panels together/secure ready for filling. using a multi tool to cut a hole at the end of the stress crack and then grind out the crack itself using a bead nailer and 19mm stainless steel nails to nail together the aluminium panels Hope this may help some people Next stage is filling still waiting for my primer to turn up but my colours are already here waiting
  7. It’s been awhile! But finally starting to be able to do things after the cold snaps. i managed to pick up a rm212f fridge locally, and a bargain toilet thetford c250 of the bay I have recently finished sanding here’s an update I’m currently in the process of filling certainly will be more videos coming a lot quicker now
  8. trying slowly, need to lift the tarp up so I can keep the roof covered so I can start from the top outside
  9. So finally was able to do the damp floor replacement video (computer issues) Currently finishing off wood and stripping roof Abit itchy last night 😂
  10. So today I started the other side, I decided it out to match the strength of the new timber on the opposite side ive also stripped the roof and replaced few bits of timber in the front corner section. I’m going to be using some foil insulation on the roof. Just not sure if to remove the fibreglass insulation as it’s not going to provide much 🤔
  11. Seems a lot stronger with the new timber I’ve put in, decided to take out the other side and replace with same to match the strength. polystyrene in mine wasn’t even glued as well as not cut great lol providing no structure at all
  12. Looks really nice! I know when ripping out it was more like why did I buy this, but now I’m starting to put things back it makes you feel like your achieving something, and the end result is a holiday home for the extending family hopefully pick up another pack of lattes to do the other side today, I’ll just reuse the wood that is ok on that side to repair the front window side and some bits of roof batterns, then it’ll be onto painting roof! 🤞🏻
  13. Just putting timber where it was before there is a lot of aluminium trims on the side that need screwing in Hopefully not long, have a floor video to edit when I can, currently sticking the sides to the timbers hopefully get started on the roof ASAP! 🤞🏻
