  1. Hey! I'm about to undertake a similar adventure! Were the walls in your scamp wallpapered when you got it? What kind of paint did you use on the interior? Did you reuse the old cabinet doors? what did you use for the countertop? If you could give me some advice my email is Thanks and your Scamp is gorgeous!

  2. Hi- I love what you did with your interior.... We just bought a "76 scamp and are also wanting to paint the beige fiberglass cabinets. Did you paint the existing fiberglass cabs, what kind of paint did you use? Has it held up well..... Also wondering if you custom built drawers for the closet or acquired something that fit well and inserted them., How did you attach them; rivets? Where did you get a custom fit temperpedic mattress topper? If you can help with advice before we potentially ruin the fiberglass that would be awesome.... Thanks a bunch!! you can email me at
