I have some screw sized holes throughout the outside skin of
my camper. The previous owner screwed some awnings into the front and back
windows of my camper, they must go. So I finished removing one and now I have
the holes from the screws to deal with. This is the awning on the back
This is the window awning in the front (why, why did this guy do this?!?)
Sorry this picture is titled, website wont let me rotate it. You can see he screwed it into the window frame. After removal I will have to repair the screw hole from the window frame not the aluminum siding .
This is after I removed the back awning , you can see the screw holes.
Also, he has screwed "hex" screws all over the aluminum siding.
Someone had mention to me on one of this boards that he probably did that because of frame rot and trouble getting the siding attached firmly. But I just can't stand these hex screws all over the skins so I have to take them out. Also I have plans to reinstall the J railing so it there is a problem with the skin being attached I will deal with it then. So my question is...how do I repair these screw holes in the aluminum skin? Any special considerations when repairing the ones in the window frame? I want to make sure water cant seep through them and I want to minimize their appearance so there not a eye soar. What's a good way to go about doing this? I have some JB Weld SteelStik (steel reinforced epoxy putty) so I was thinking of filling the holes with this stuff then dabbing a little clear Proflex or Aluminum Pigmented Gutterseal over it. Any ideas? This topic has been discussed previously but I didn't see any clear answers on what worked best. Also, there was a lot of talk about welding and what not's, which I have no experience with.Has anyone successfully repaired these holes? Any pictures you can share?
