I have a 1980s era Folbot Super TSK (I'm pretty sure that's what it is) that I'm going to reskin and refinish, among other things. I've got some ideas on how to reskin but they're only ideas, so I could really use some help. I have limited funds but think I have the hand tools I need (hopefully). Here are my questions:
I was going to use heavy duty truck tarp material (it's a PVC coated polyester) for a new skin - will that work?
I'm going to sand the wood frame and refinish it but I don't know what to refinish it with. Certainly the finish needs to be waterproof. Any suggestions?
For gluing and patching the skin, what kind of glue do I need?
For hardware (screws, etc.), what do I use? Copper? Stainless steel?
I'm sure I'll have to check in with this forum now and again as I get under way!
