The whole front was loose as if it had delaminated. I there is rot in the 4 corners as well. I had made the stud walls for the front 2 years ago. They are ready to go in when I remove these old ones. I also use 2 x2 when I replace any studs. Original build was 1 1/2 x 1 1/8. Very confusing in the beginning. I plan on stapling the 1/4 Luan underlay onto the frame & gluing the filon onto it. I have some 3m contact glue I am using.

Are you going to glue it a section at a time rolling out the fiberlass onto the side as you go. I would think trying to get the whole side glued before beginning install would take too much time

The front & back walls are the biggest. The filon has been cut for these. Laying it down it will be sprayed on the back side & the Luan underlay will be sprayed. The sheet will be started from the bottom & pressed into place as it goes on. The glue is an industrial product. I have a friend that works for 3M. This was the best solution.

Cool I just think about the undertaking of trying to install a whole sidewall and it makes me shiver lol. Have you purchased new decals or are you going to do something different?

I'll look when I go out to the shop. This has been the problem since the beginning.

I am going to put a shelf under the bottom of the walls so the sheet won't fall down. Apparently this glue just needs to be pressed into place $& it won't peel back.

On the factory tour they had a machine that was on a track and with the sidewall layed down flat they sprayed a stream of some kind of urethane adhesive down the whole sidewall then put the skin on. it would be a lot different doing it vertical. I made the decision watching them build the units that I would be scared to try to undertake anything like you have. I restore old cars for a living and that's hard enough but there are some tv shows about companies that are now restoring old campers and I think they are fascinating

About 12 years ago I was at the Fleetwood plant in Lindsay here in Ontario & saw them do the same thing there. This has been the issue with a lot of people repairing fibreglass. I talked with a guy that use to build Award trailers here & he too was looking for a glue that would hold tight on the vertical. I thought of vacuum bagging but that would be a LOT of work to warp the trailer. When I put a temporary patch on when I first got it I used PL premium which I learned was not the ideal adhesive for that application.
