Finally started some work on the inside.
Did some much needed rewiring.
Then moved onto some walls.
The front walls, behind the cab.
I was going to just sheet over them, but once I saw how very little of the walls were going to be exposed, I figured it would be better to just clean them.
There were so many stickers and left over ….mmm…. pictures…. taped to walls.
Pictures of…uuhhmm …. Laura Croft…. hockey teams … women’s curling teams ……
( seriously ? )
Hey, it came with the truck . ….
TONS of old scotch tape, packing tape….. 2 way tape… spray paint…marker
It’s actually ALL over the truck. Even on the sliding door. Luckily, the other walls are getting covered.
But it was SO hard to get off.
I probably would have been better off just gluing a skin of aluminum sheet over it.
But I was determined to get it clean and just used the raw walls.
Cleaned it with everything possible.
Then sanded it all with 280 grit an orbital sander.
Did a polish with a buffing wheel in a test spot….
Came out really nice …. too nice.
Actually got a mirror finish in the small test area.
But it made everything ELSE look really dull.
Switched to a scotch brite pad.
It gave it a nice smooth clean finish.
A dull shine.
I liked it.
