Pimp My Coleman Mach 3 AC

So, after all the great tips I decided that today was the day to be on the roof.
I took some before, during and after photos.

I used Loctite Spray Adhesive Shop LOCTITE 13.5 oz Spray Adhesive at Lowes.com to attach the insulation blankets.

Shop Reflectix 25-ft x 24-in Reflective Insulation at Lowes.com

I had previously installed the "Hard Start Kit" and the "Fan Delay Relay"

I also took the opportunity to lube the motor axle and remove 2 small wasp nests.

Here is the "Before" condition.

After

I also took the opportunity to wrap the cold lines from the compressor. (They are the big ones. The tiny tubes are the hot lines.)

HERK; what color are your AC covers? Mine were black and I use Plastic bond spray paint to paint them white to help cut down on heat issues too.
