Covering Damage Spot

Post  Darcamper on Tue Jan 19, 2010 10:05 pm

What would one recommend to cover a damage spot, like a dent that was filled in with chalk.

I pretend I like those kids of spots, but what you may have is bondo that didn't get painted over. Bondo is great stuff for filling dents. Just follow the surface prep instructions closely and you should have good results.

What is the damaged spot on? Is it aluminum or fiberglass or wood?

I am thinking that the damaged spot she is talking about is on our HTT which has a fiberglass skin. It was caused (and existing when we bought it) when the front bunk was allowed to hit the top of the propane tanks when let down. There are no protection or stops built into the tongue or bunk end to prevent this kind of damage if you let the bunk come down farther than it should during setup.

I think I have something figured out. Since I am a scrapbooker, I will add a 5 inch strip over it in lite blue and add right over that the word "Adventures" in the light green.

I hope this will make a nice me touch...Don'tha think?

I have seen people to fix a spot to keep it from water damage then cover it with some kind of vent cover then it looks like a fixture on the camper most wouldn't know that it wasn't suppost to be there. Very Happy Rolling Eyes

Darlene, If I did that, I'd use Duck Tape and a Sharpie. I'm sporting several new pieces of "Gorilla" Tape over the holes I gained in my canvas during my rapid pop-down at River Plantation.
