I would like to do a total color change  of my 1995 Jurgens Classique's interior. What type of wall paper is recommended for this type of project?

Do not waste time or money on wall paper.

We only done the roof and door with wall paper, which is quite a mission.

Incorrect fitment can cause a mess.

Just to do the roof and door was very expensive.

You need: 

- Gemken.

- Hairdryer to remove bubbles.

- As well as a lot of patients.

We removed all wall paper and bought Jurgens Grey paint from Paint Tech and redone the entire inside walls.

Thanks Gerden

My challenge is that the previous owner has damaged the walls leaving a whole lot of unsightly holes. If I can find a product to cover the holes professionally, I might just consider your advice.

We also had holes as well as the wall paper that came loose.

The holes I filled with Polyfiller, but it must be the ready to use paste type.

What I also find good, is tile grouting.

They are easy to work with and to sand off the excess is much easier and gives a much more smooth effect.

I also need a spare wheel for my '95 Classique. Would anyone perhaps know what rim would fit?

You can also use Stucco Embossed Aluminium sheeting and glue it on your walls. Quite expensive though. I paid R360 for a 1500 x 1200 sheet at Macsteel

This appears to be the same material used on the outer skin of caravans

You can use a Nissan Rim with 5-holes.

The PCD is the same.

My Penta and X-Trail share a spare wheellaughing
