    Aloha All!

    My wife and I just bought a super old pop-up from a neighbor friend. He had it in his yard for 20 years and never used it. Been bugging him for years to let me buy it and work on it and he finally caved. Paid about nothing for it and got it in the backyard just today.

    Now the fun part. Big project and needs a lot of work. Need to replace interior ceiling panels and make the top waterproof to begin with. Replace lights with strip LEDs and such.

    Interior I am good at. Exterior is another thing. I really want to strip the exterior and repaint. Been reading through all the tons of threads and still no clue what method I will go with.

    Just wanted to pop in and say Aloha and that I will be spending a lot of time her seeing what everyone has done with theirs. Probably would've been cheaper to spend more and get a newer pop-up, but I'd really like to fix this up as his family has very fond memories of it.
