My Toyota Motorhome


Found 6 results

  1. I found a near perfect over the counter spray paint for the 80's Toyota pickup Sunrader hood and doors paint. I can over spray the 'white' Toyota paint original paint code 035 with Rust-o-leum matte french cream part number 282816 upc 2006626818. link here https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00NOB5T08/ref=asc_df_B00NOB5T085016593/?tag=hyprod-20&creative=394997&creativeASIN=B00NOB5T08&linkCode=df0&hvadid=193152739170&hvpos=1o1&hvnetw=g&hvrand=15945175382914676310&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9031914&hvtargid=pla-378991349477 I had two different auto paint stores create the 035 paint from the manufacturer's specification. The paint came out bone white, not light yellow/white. completely wrong. I then bought every whitish spray paint ( about 30) I could find in several different auto/home/paint stores and found this miracle paint from Rustoleum. I cannot tell where I painted with the matte french creme and where the original paint. ah really great!! what a thrill to find a perfect match. This is my payback for all the generous help other people have posted to the Toyota motorhome discussion board.
  2. Hey everyone, thought I'd share some of the work my wife and I have been doing on our 4x4 Sunrader. We bought it in August 2017 in Bozeman, MT. We drove it around the west coast for a while and then made our way to Florida to begin a renovation on it. My wife and I have been living in a VW Vanagon for the last two years and decided to make the move to the Sunrader for the extra room, 4WD, Toyota reliability, and cheaper parts. We started the renovation at the beginning of November and are currently still working on it. We've heavily documented the process with photos, videos, and blog posts so I'll try not to be too redundant and post links here. I'll keep posting as we have more to show! Her name is Amelia and this was her before we started working on her. There's plenty more picture of her and her interior before we started the process over here: http://www.boundfornowhere.com/blog/2017/new-home-on-wheels Our goal was to start with a clean slate on renovation so we tore her down to the fiberglass and salvaged what we could. We found LOTS of dead mice in the walls which made us feel better about peeling back everything so we could get a fresh start. Here is a video of that process: We also cover it with some photos and writing in this blog post. This post also shows our first attempts at fiberglassing as we decided to teach ourselves. http://www.boundfornowhere.com/blog/build-out-week-1-2 I'll leave it at here for now. Don't want to overwhelm you with too much all at once. Be back soon with some more process. -MAK and Owen
  3. I was given an 83 Huntsman this spring. After looking at this board, I spent the summer finding and having a friend put in the needed axle - turning it from a 2-ton planter into something that can be driven. My friend has also done basic tuneup and maintenance checks. He is very kind. He has just now gotten the propane tank filled and will be bringing it back to me in a couple days to see if the appliances work. And - it is probable that we won't be able to get the bathroom and shower working. It might end up just being storage for me. I would have to make due with truck stops, etc. A woman friend has also sewn cushion covers. - I am in a ministry. People have been very kind. Okay. Next step. I have no money. I am a widow with no mechanical skills. My friend helps, but I don't want to ask more of him than absolutely necessary - and as you can see, he has already done very much. What I can do: I can paint? The outside is a mess. I was thinking I might like to paint the cabinet doors white, as well, to lighten it up. There is old paint in the basement of this house that I bought a few years ago. It is interior satin enamel. (I am paining over probably having to sell the house and live in the RV). I know it's generally not a good idea to use old paint.... but maybe there isn't enough anyway. I think I heard about a free place for paint in Fargo or Morehead a few years ago. At any rate. Any advice at all is appreciated. I am thinking I should learn how to do maintence on my own as well. My friend showed me where the things are to fill up the air bags. That looked easy. And he showed me where the rig should sit above the tires when it is filled properly. If I can pull this off and actually live in this planter - and maintain it myself - no one will ever be able to deny the reality of miracles again....
  4. So it has been a while since I have done anything to the Toyota but I am back and come with good news. While I have been busy at school this semester, my Dad has surprised me and painted my Escaper. Before paint it was having some small rust issues, fading paint, and some fiberglass wearing through on the coach. He painted the body of the truck, the coach, bumper, rims, and window edges as well as completely redoing the window caulk. Here it is before paint. And here it is after. And finally we were able to install the awning I found at a scrap yard on an old Dolphin. It is in near perfect working condition. Getting ready to test fit. Mounting the brackets. And at the end of the day all is well and shiny. Looking out the window from inside of the rig. Everything went well and she now looks awesome if I do say so myself.
  5. just started priming inside of rv used 1-2-3-primer its going to take at least 4 coats in cabover to have a good prime white color...
  6. Soooo, how is your paint job holding up on the cupboards and walls? I see some have opted for the make-over and I would love to know what works best, because the plastic wood has to go! I've painted paneling before and have always scuffed, used Kilz, or something, but I dread sanding. Is this the method here too?
