Shower, Taking Shape

Our shower is starting to look less like a dungeon and more like a… shower! We had the option to go with a funky color, but opted for traditional white instead since there will be very little light coming in. I don’t regret fiberglassing by hand, even though I’m pretty sure I’ve lost many brain cells from the resin fumes. It looks great. Also, we took back the porcelain paint and bought marine paint instead. I wasn’t sure if porcelain would be a bad idea for a bus that shifts and moves a lot on the road, so we are playing it safe. Primer is on, and next week we’ll paint another coat of white marine enamel, then a final coat of glossy spar varnish.

Fiberglass Mess pt. 2

There is no way to get good pictures of this, but suffice to say it is the messiest project EVER! The end product will be nice, but man, what a job. We just finished fiberglassing the shower by hand. We chose fiberglass out of necessity because of all the crazy angles in the shower and no other wall panel or covering would have worked. It just looks like wet wood in the photos, but it’s done! Waiting for it to dry now, then a final sanding down before coating with marine paint.

The bonus: Brad now says that I am his hero. I’ll take it.

Tip – when working with resin wear clothes that you’re ok with throwing away afterward.
