Puzzle Pieces

For reference, this is the Order of Operations for putting the inside walls back up.

  1. End Caps
  2. Back Wall – two curved pieces then middle piece
  3. Side Walls – work bottom to top
  4. Front Wall – two curved pieces then middle piece
  5. Add ceiling rails, insert ceiling piece

 

Back End Cap

We found this out the hard way and after a few meltdowns. The plastic end caps where the hardest to get back up. Since they had been sitting for probably a year, they had flattened out and it was a serious struggle to get them back into the same place. It took four (4) people, three (3) to hold it in place and one (1) to rivet. Be sure to get different sizes of rivets and different lengths. The plastic on these end caps is pretty thick and they are heavy so you will need larger and longer rivets for those than you need for the actual walls.

We had numbered the wall pieces and placements so we knew where everything went back in.

Each piece was laid out by location and cleaned before going back up. Everything was bleached. I wanted the ceiling piece to be a different color from the walls so I painted it before it was put into place. I had to do some touch-ups once in place but it was much easier that painting the entire piece in place.

Once in place, the wiring was pulled through so that the electrical panel could be added….after paint.

  1. I love the blog – your commentary is engaging – keep it up!

    I have 1 ’73 20-foot Argosy which I inherited. It is in decent shape, and I hope I never need to do what you and your family are doing. (I have neither the facilities nor money to do major repairs right now…)

    • Thanks so much for the comment. I have some updates to post, just trying to find the time. All of the renovation wasn’t really in the plans but needed. It has been fun and a learning process but I hope I can avoid it in the future.
