I just acquired a 1990 Newport this week.. FREE!!!. The PO seemed to have no use for anything inside, they ripped out all of the cabinets and seating. I have a gutted camper. Nothing but a floor, the slide outs on the inside, the electrical convertor and the water tank. So I have a good project. Everything structuraly seems to be fine. The corner caps on the roof need to be repaired/replaced and recualked, but I have seen no eveidence of water damage yet (PO did keep it in a garage). This is my first camper and I already have a list of things I want to get started on. My wife and I really are looking forward to doing some camping this season. I have some woodworking abilities, and some engineering back ground, so I think I can pretty well handle the interior build part. I have close friends at the FD that can help with me with any wiring issues(one is a 12v guy and one a 110v, so if I can get them together I will be set, lol). But I would like to spruce up the exterior as well. I found the manual on my camper and have learned that I do have an aluminum roof and it seems like that is a good thing. I have what I think is ABS front and rear sections( if I am wrong, please someone correct me) and aluminum sides. My question is what is the best method for paint. I have all kinds of time to work on this thing, but I want to spend as little money as I can and still have a good result. I may have access to a paint spayer, but I have not had much expirence with those things. Would a rattle can, or roller give me a decent finish? What kind of prep would need to be done, if any to the ABS? Do I need different kinds of paint for the aluminum and ABS? My list of things I hope to accomplish in the next few months are: Paint (Body and frame) Axle Flip New tires (dry rot) Clean all the canvas (they are nasty) New floor covering Wire and plumb Rebuild the interior And my wife can knock out the upholstery work I tried to post pics, I copied from photobucket, but it will not give paste as an option here.
