No more tar, New vents next

Finished removing the roofing tar at 5am this morning. At least the previous owner didn't make a lot of holes in the top when he attached his extra roof to the side.  The cruiser looks so much better without those black tears running down her side. It took about 12 hours with a heat gun, putty knife and lots of rags. Now on to the roof vents and new fantastic fans, i have had the fans for almost a year now, they will be out of warranty before we use them! The old vents have so many layers of caulking and tar! The cruiser will probably come up some when I get the extra weight off :-)

lots of TAR

After lots of spring projects and watching everyone else work on their trailers, it's time to dive back in for a while. I started removing this tar from the top over a year ago and am really tired of looking at it running down the side. Between a heat gun, a putty knife and some solvent I am finally making some progress. One more night and I should be done.
Next on the list is the front and back roof vents, they are really ugly. There should be an ugly vent contest?
Nice to be touching aluminum again!!
