Insert Witty Title Here...

Been busy today. Lets get to it...

First I put a self-leveling floor patch on the scrapped floor. There were plenty of divots that  This will help once the underlayment is laid down...


I went on with the exterior. I put some attention to the roof. Here is the black water tank vent cap...
You can see the PO put a thick layer of roofing tar on the vents. I managed to scrape most of the tar away and remove the cap so I can clean it up and reseal it properly...

Apparently, I have never took a shot of the roof vent before I took it out. I can assure you it was covered with the same thick roofing tar. Here is the hole with the skin cleaned up to get ready for the Fantastic Fan...
If you have this on your roof you can use a heat gun and warm the tar then scrape it off with a putty knife. Once you get it all off you can go back and clean the skin with Goof Off and a cloth. It dissolves the residue well. 

I went back inside and removed the upper kitchen cabinets so could remove the damaged ceiling panel completely...
I pulled the panel completely and re framed the ceiling area. If the skin and frame looks a bit separated its because I shimmed the vent area so water will run away from the vent...
And test fit the Fantastic Fan...
And insulated the area...
Ignore the sloppy tape job. I was getting tired and wasn't in the mood anymore.

More to come. Stay tuned...

I'm just starting on a 1960 Shasta Deluxe. Your blog will be so helpful! Please include every detail you can write down (or have time to). I'm good at restoration, but every trailer is different. Thanks so much for all your work on this blog!

You're awesome to post that after all that work. I know how much work blogging is after a long day. Thanks! I just acquired a '64 Shasta. My first trailer and I love it.

Cheers!
