This is for the bottom part of the outside. I was thinking of sticking with the same paint brand as the roof, but a lot of advice I've been given is to use boat paint... International looks great, but Altex is a little more affordable. Still not sure what colour I'll use. I wanted a dark grey for the bottom part, but the colours are limited. Apparently this will give a high gloss enamel finish and I'm keen to try this brush technique viewers have mentioned!
A 12v light switch for by the door. This will control the outside light and the 'dining room' light. One of my pet pevs with my current caravan is coming in at night and reaching up to the base of the main light, attempting to find the tiny switch in the dark.
There is some interior wood that could become a problem in the future. Sound like I could use this product to stop the wood from disintegrating! It says: epoxy based material that is best suited as a wood saturation system to help harden, densify and seal out moisture.
An expensive one... replacing the front window. I've got a $520 quote, but currently getting another. I've broken down this item into six seperate contributions to be close to what it might cost. Really interesting reading everyones comments on the 'smashed' video. I'm currently leaning towards replacing with glass again because safetly glass becomes extremely expensive. Thinking of adding a film to stop it damaging anything if it does break again. Still need to research about the film too!
I'm a huge fan of solar and have been eyeing this kit that I could install myself. The retail price is $1,850.00 which includes a 315w Solar panel, 12v200ah Deep cycle Gel battery, MPPT Charge controller and 600W Inverter. I'm going to break this cost down to many many parts! From Grid Free
Since I've decided to paint the top sides of the caravan, I've decided to do it in the same aluminium paint as the roof. Keep it consistent! I've learnt from the roof that I'll actually need 4L for this. From Bunnings again and shall break up the cost of NZ$149.
I've decided I should paint over the aluminium I've spent so long revealing... particularly since there are a couple of spots that don't seem that well sealed! First off, I'll need to prime the metal ready for the paint.
