Poor man's fibreglass on top of PVC

Postby rogerdean » Thu Jun 20, 2019 7:31 am

Hi folks
I clad a squaredrop with white PVC foamex sheets. It is retired now and has become a kids playhouse. But it's pretty ugly and PVC is hard to paint nicely. Would PMF stick on top of PVC do you think? An extra shell wouldn't hurt since it's not mobile any more... Any better ideas?
Thanks in advance
Roger

To me PMF includes the foam sheeting, so no need to stick to the PVC you're building a new shell around it.

The Gripper over canvas part is really for adding structural strength to the foam as much as waterproofing, and personally I doubt even the original Glidden version would stick properly.

Pretty sure forget TBII for this

If you just want to paint it, Krylon Fusion is the bomb, prep with acetone after sanding.

Good advice, thanks, will probably try Krylon first and something more radical if it doesn't work out
