First up was the bumper. When last we saw that rear bumper it had been given a thorough cleaning to remove the rust and was about to be painted with a glossy black Rustoleum. Then work, Prom and bad weather caused us to close the Can up until the next day like today arrived. Rust removed bumper and spring bad weather....yep you guessed it!!
So out came the sanding brick and wire brush and the newest crop of rust was removed!!
I then went over the bumper with a dry cloth followed by a rub down with rubbing alcohol to remove the dry, powdery rust residue. Once the alcohol evaporated we were set to paint.
P.S.> Lesson learned last time and today I wore gloves to protect the manicure !!
Just a simple coat of paint can make a tired old lady look much better!! Next up will be the front tongue but first I'm off to find naval jelly which has been recommended to me for more thorough rust removal with less elbow grease required.
$30 each for a total of $60 seems like quite the splurge but my old bones dictated that I do the most I could to ensure my sleeping spot was as comfortable as I could make them!.
All of the cabinet doors and drawer were labeled and removed and will be painted inside in my sewing/craft room. The bracing bar in the icebox opening was removed and the floors scrubbed again. The heater cover will be coming off as well as the paint plan includes an
update for that as well.
Then there is no photographic documentation of the visit by my Electrician Nephew to asses Zan's current state of wiring. Seems it is highly outdated and very unsafe!! Here is where I tell a reader trying to keep costs down, if you have a friend/relative who is in the trades try and work out a barter!! In return for my designing a full back tattoo He will bring the Can up to date and safe!
Hoping the rain forecast for tomorrow is wrong....I started the next inside project and wasn't able to get very far....
...but I am already EXCITED about the clean and fresh look it promises to give the Can!!
