Hi all Foamlings,
Here's a link to an Aussie restoration on a 1959 'vintage' homebuilt caravan
that used calico [like a lightweight canvas] and paint to waterproof the roof.
It's what they call a "Bondwood" - a caravan [ a TT or TTT] that is skinned in
plywood and that uses paint as the exterior finish. It also has a large roof
hatch for ventilation [vs a roof vent like we use here] which is quite common
in the older caravans there,
Page 1 shows pics of the roof and hatch as they found it and then stripped
them. Page 2 has pics [quite a few] of reapplying the calico and/in paint on
the roof and hatch. Be sure to look through both of the pages entirely as the
pics/info is spread out throughout them.

This is the most extensive photo documentation of this technique that I've found looking around the
web so far, so I thought It'd be useful here.
How about changing the sticky title to something like:
"Canvas /Tarp Suppliers and Application techniques/Methods"
so that all that type of info can be located in one place?
