So since I had to pull the motor and have a cyclinder sleeved I have some down time to do some overhauling .so I pulled all the carpet out going to pull the tanks out .my plan it to rhino line the interior section and bilge coat the back and clean the carpet and glue off the tanks. Got a estimated from a rhino liner place of about 500-700$ to do it in any color.need some input pro,s con,s.  Also want to fill in all the unused bolt holes through out my stringers I was thinking of using wood dowels and resin. I plan on leaving the stringers in  natural form. And need some advise on stripping the glue off of the tanks planing on leaving them uncovered just a cleaner install

Dowels and resin is how I filled unnecessary holes in my stringers. I used a random orbital sander to get all the nasty carpet glue off the tanks. I left them at a 220 or 400 grit, I can't remember. They looked good at that point, but you could always polish them out! Flow coating the floors will be way cheaper than $5-700. It'll look better and won't get hot during the summer.

Don't rhyno line it bud, that texture will keep dirt and grime in it. Flow coat it and it will look awesome. And it won't cost you a whole lot to do.

Floors, stringers, transom, and bulk head were all sanded. Repairs were made, then everything was coated in resin. From there everything but the stringers were sanded with 220 before laying down the "flow coat"

It's somewhat slippery, but not as bad as I thought. You have to be careful. Maybe a strip of carpet between the center stringers wouldn't be a bad idea.
One thing I like about the flowcoat is it cleans up nicely. Earlier this summer we hit storms on the way to the river and loaded it up with chairs, ezup, etc. After all that abuse it buffed out easily.

The mess in the pics below rinsed out with soap and water. That was from a storm we hit on rice road.

Carpet glue eliminator.  And it won't sand off your resin.

Probably end up coating the floor with resin to seal it all up and creat a nice surface for the bilge coat

It's relatively easy on the resin.  The matrix has silicone carbide in it, which is very hard.  But the matrix flexes.  It will scratch the resin, but it won't really take off any significant amount of material unless you really hold the wheel in one spot for a long time, and over-heat the resin.  Think of it as a really heavy-duty Scotch-Brite pad.

Looks good.  :thumbup:

What color are you going to go with? Are you going to put any carpet back in?

I pulled the carpet out of the storage space in my keel.  I cleaned it before removing the bulkheads.  I couldn't believe it took the glue off so easily.

I wouldn't try it on the fuel tanks.  It might only dull the finish or it might turn it black.  I've seen it go ways.  I have been using it to clean all my aluminum diesel parts, going to powder coat, and it hasn't affected any of them.

My tanks are glassed in and one looks really terrible.  Getting the carpet glue off is the least of concerns.

Sealing everything up with some fresh resin adding some gussets to keep the tanks nice and tight should be ready for some bilge coat by next week
