I have a 96 Sundance Cameo that I am finally getting around to rebuilding the cabinet. Ohio weather is rough, couple that with a leak (I think on some jets at the corners) and now it's time. Here are a couple pics after we flipped it over to tackle the rotted wood frame. You can see where the corners are where the leaks are (foam crumbled). The corner bases were so bad they did not survive flipping it over. I do have one to copy that is more or less intact. fortunately the bottom rounded corner is the sam eon each corner. Most of the vertical 2x3's are in good shape, although I plan on replacing everything with treated 2x4's and recreating the perimiter board with 2x6's. I have a KREG jig for drilling holes at angles, so framing it up should only take a weekend. Once I get going. I had removed the pumps after rebuilding the wet ends to replace the PS-201 seals and they have been sitting in the basement. I will have to replace the 220v terminal strip as one of the lugs rusted and broke when I disconnected it. Already found a replacement terminal block. Everything worked before I removed the pumps. I don't fault the water damage to Sundance... I just ignored it too long. I'm hoping it's just the therapy jet seals leaking. I found one video where a Sundance spa leaked in the same places (same model) ... the lower most back rest therpy jets in the corners only have finger tight collars on the back. Might be a good place to look. Pretty sure the acrylic does not have any cracks that I can see. I will post pictures as it gets done. I'd like to see any other "rebuilds" if you know of any.
