            Great progress, as for balance - weight destitution if you are like most restorers load a bunch of tools that can be switched to other compartments, keep it up.

                So the original fabbed cabin walls where a DF 3/8 ply, that started to buckle and peel about a month after the were cut and screwed in. grrrr. Changed over to a product called SandePly which has held up since. I will be coating all the wood components with Sherwin Williams Duraplate 235, then afixing vinyl wallpaper to them. There have been other goings on too. But with 4 grandkids now, and several trees cut that need splitting and other things needing adulting, lol, I'm just not having a whole lot of nothing to do time these days. I'll get around to an update soon.

                          Well the wainscote idea bit the dust a while back, due to no being able to find a style in PVC that we liked, after the chosen style was discontinued. So switched over to Plas-tec/ Polywall, glued to a 3/16 lightweight ply. Will be doing 2ft deep by 8 ft wide sections screwed to the battens, then use decorative trim to cover the seams. Need to maintain access for wiring, lights, and repair in the ceiling.

                          I will say that it's amazing how much warmer the cabin, is in the winter, with just 3/4 in. foamboard in the ceiling. Hopefully it will be that much cooler in the summer.

                          A couple of pics by the weekend for the interested.

                          Well I thought I was going to have pics of the first ceiling panel, laminated and ready to go. Alas, it is not be. Yesterday before SuperBowl, I cut the backer out of the sheet, cut the Polywall,, rolled out the contact adhesive, slapped them together, rolled them out, to get a good contact, then left them to set under sheets of 3/4 ply and weights.Tonight I pulled up the weights and ply, flipped the sheet over to inspect, and the polywall curled up like a curly fry. No adhesion. I'm baffled it was stuck well, last night. Actually was wet when it peeled up, but it wasn't last night. I'm guessing some sort of reaction, that didn't occur on the small test panel. Oh well here's some pictures of the trash that resulted.

                          Polywall with glue in the shape it curled up in. Was flat when it when on. Into the trash. Maybe bad batch of contact cement.

                          Ply sheet folded up to size the trash haulers will take. Notice the discolouration, almost like watermarks.

                          Sheet and panel just before adhesive application. Polywall is flat with no curling.

                          Now for something mildly more encouraging.

                          Interior trim panels and insulation ready to be glued up. I use PLL for this. These fit in the area just above the head and galley in the bump up of the bridge cap.

                          Trim panel and storage boxes for the rear cabin bulkhead. Boxes go on either side of step, which is now also fuel tank access for sender hosing and the like. Panel is the facing for bulkhead interior surface, around the step, and inside the boxes.

                            You using the original “old school” formula of contact adhesive? I agree you had some type of chemical reaction with the poly wall stuff. You have a link for that material?

                              You might try Landau Cement. It’s a stronger version of contact cement and made for moist to wet environments. Perfectfit.com has it or any upholstery supplier to the pros should have it.
