New portafold owner - a few questions for the experienced re-vampers

Post by spicylentils » Mon, 02 Jul 2018, 8:47 pm

Hi to all,

I am very pleased to be a portafold owner and part of this great community. thank you

I have just bought a new portafold, the inside is a blank canvas so far.

I would like some advice please?:

What type of paint have you used inside on the walls, and the storage area? mine is currently emulsion (yellow), was hoping to brighten it up with white on the walls and behind the foam padding, and grey on the storage area, but unsure which paint to use?

What material have you used for the kitchen surface area? it has to be strong enough for me to fit a sink and a gas camping stove but also be able to chop vegetables on it?

what size have you cut for the kitchen surface? as I am aware that it needs to fit in the walk way when it is down as a trailor?

Has anyone drilled a hole at the back shelf (tow end) for gas pipe and water waste to go outside? is this safe (being fibre glass)?

Any pictures of kitchen areas and pipes would be VERY MUCH APPRECIATED :)

thank you for your time and sorry for bombarding questions, I really hope to get it done in time for the 10th anniversary, and really look forward to meeting fellow portafold enthusiasts.

thanks again

Michelle :thumbup:
