Re: 2000 4x4 GTRV Quigley Oregon $18,500

Two Van family, am I nuts!!! I bought this GTRV van on Thursday last week and am starting the big job of cleaning it up. Seems to be in somewhat good shape and drove great back from Medford to Bend, Oregon. The van needs new canvas and weather strip on the pop-up. Extensive cleaning and some cabinet work replacement/rebuild on the water tank cover and WH cover in the back. Also has a few dents to fix and the outside accent decals removed or replaced. Anybody have suggestions on the decals?

I'd talk to this guy, he just removed a bunch of stripes:

Re: 2000 4x4 GTRV Quigley Oregon $18,500

It was listed here at $18.5.

Do you mind sharing with us what you got it for?

I had spoken to the seller before he had seen or evaluated the inside.

It'd be interesting and educational to know what the final price was, with all the dents, dings and canvas problems.

At any rate, hope you have fun fixing it up, maybe I'll see you in it in Bend this summer.

Re: 2000 4x4 GTRV Quigley Oregon $18,500

Well the price escalated a bit because another person in WA was wanting it bad. I had not seen any interior pic's before I meet Stephan in Shady Cove, great guy! It was pretty dirty on the inside but realitively sound. The upholstery was in nice shape. The canvas needs replaced becuse all of the screens/window are shot and the last owner used Shoe Goo all over the place to patch holes and glue Velcro on. We settled on $20,500. I will need to put in 3-4 days of scrubbing, maybe a new cooktop, micro, rebuild some of the back cabinets, removed decals, fix dents and paint the pop-top cap.

As for the dent in the back, looks like a telephone pole hit while backing out of a tavern, that would be my guess. This was Stephan's uncles van who passed away in July. Sounds like he was quite the fly fisherman spending his time between Jackson Hole and Shady Cove. He was known to toss a few down, God Bless his Soul!

Thanks gbail, for the post information on the decal removal. I am going to try to give the 3M eraser wheel a try.

Bellpilot: Congrats on the new rig!

I've used both the 3M eraser wheel and the less expensive AES eraser wheel and they are comparable so save your money and go with the AES. I used 2.5 complete wheels stripping my decals so you will probably need the same amount. I purchased a six-pack so I still have quite a few left. If you lived closer I'd give you a few.

Here's an Amazon link to the AES eraser wheels: http://www.amazon.com/AES-Industries...ndustries+4%22

Good luck and please post pics!

Re: 2000 4x4 GTRV Quigley Oregon $18,500

Thanks Peter, I ran out today and bought the 3M before reading your post, dang it! Tonight I was able to get the passenger side decal off using about 1/3 of the 3M wheel, will tackle the other side tomorrow. And I will be posting some pics when I get this van back in shape. Again, thanks for your reply. It is really great how everyone on this forum is so willing to help.

Brad

Re: 2000 4x4 GTRV Quigley Oregon $18,500

Congrats! I recently got a 2001 GTRV and removed all of the decals. I had good luck with a heat gun removing some big strips and then where the decals were really baked I had to use the 3M wheel. Then had to scrub with an adhesive remover. It took about 5 or 6 hours of work to get them off and it really cleans up the look of the van in my opinion.

I might be purchasing a GTRV van and was thinking about possibly doing the same as long as the paint hasn't oxidized too much. Did you have that issue with your 2001? Can you see where the decals used to be?

Mine were super oxidated and they all buffed out with a heat gun and 3m wheel. The ford paint is burly and cleaned up well. You can't tell the decals were ever on there.
