Thanks for the info. What about the main seal that seals the roof to the body ? When you removed the ABS did this seal need to be removed and/or replaced when applying the GG ?
Sorry for the late reply to questions about "what's under the ABS?". It appears to be fiberglass mat on/in the foam. Some places the foam completely covers the fiberglass but most of the flat top is exposed fiberglass. I received my premixed kit (7 quarts plus an extra for piece of mind) from Midwest Chemical last week. Today I started prepping the top with Bondo to fill some holes and smooth some rough places. After the initial round of bondo, I sanded smooth with a random orbital sander with 80 grit. There were a number of smooth areas that I roughed up to remove old glue. The dust from the sanding def contains fiberglass as I'm feeling the itch of glass. I'm working under a 10x12 easy-up. Hoping I can finish up with GG before rain in a couple of days. I'll post photos with an update.Nolan, what do you think is on top of the foam in the roof? Like a fiberglass mesh set into the foam, or is it skimmed fiberglass? This is a hot bed discussion here , lol. Loys say and look as if they only have a foam core. Yours lookes like mine did. But i never stripped off the abs compleatly. I always thought mine had a fiberglass layer. Looking at yours it looks like a sheet of fiberglass set into the foam mold. What do you think it is?
Change you name to larry goes camping soonThis is an awesome thread. Thank you all! I guess I know the answer is to remove my AC, remove the awning strip (not sure its savable) and then remove all the abs before applying the grizzly paint. This project is getting scarier and scarier lol!!
Fleetwood used ABS with a thin co-polymer of Luran S... This is a UV resistant, chemical resistant, anti-yellowing material
Has anyone coated their Coleman ABS roof with Henry's 887 Tropi-Cool 100% Silicone Roof Coating (shorturl.at/dhzGH)? It has a lifetime warranty and I asked them and they claim it's designed to adhere to ABS. I'm wondering if this would be an option to halt deterioration on a roof that's still in reasonable condition
