It's called a tubular rivet.

Tubular Rivets : Hanson Rivet & Supply Co. Inc.

It needs a special tool to set it. The die rolls back the edges of the tube.

I had them on my compartment door hinges, I just used pop rivets to replace.

good job

Hi Todd,
Great work you've done upto now,
I'm in UK and have a 1960 Avion H24, which i'm doing a restoration (ish) job on. 90% finished replacing floor with shell on, with the inside walls i'm replacing them though as i have a good local source for Aluminium sheet.
I will actually post some pictures on the forum soon, (keep promising myself)
Keep up the good work.
Cheers
Tim

I have to admit it's a nice one and it's the only Pacer I've seen that has the same configuration as mine.
It even has the same windows on the sides including the one by the bed in the right side.
The interior seems pretty close too........

Here's mine Sunday as I was leaving the Big Sandy (With my new tow vehicle)



It has new tires on it as I had to replace both as one blew out on the way up to Big Sandy
and I had to go 100+ plus mile rt to find replacements in Kingman.

Pretty close on the numbers too......







Good progress on your restoration and repair. I seem to be in a camping over work mode lately.

Superfluous help

Hi Todd, What a surprise to see another resurrection fan nearby. I am within (I hope) one year of finishing my 82 Excella gut and rebuild. I work in Cross Plains and live in Mazo. It doesn't look like you need much help but I work for free and am worth every penny. Jeff

Well, we got to Platteville early Sunday morning and started breaking 1/8th in. Drill bits. . . . I mean drilling out interior rivets

It's really amazing how fast the interior can come out. I think we were done in an hour. All the electrical was out in 5 minutes.







It doesn't look like any of the outer shell seams have ever leaked.

All of the inner panels are now in a heated basement workshop and will be methodically stripped of Zolatone. Fun fun.

Next weekend then belly pan will be dropped, and inner bracing installed, maybe it'll even get lifted a little.

Todd

Sorry for the butt shot

The bracing was very straight forward. We used a small car jack on the 4x4 cross braces to lift, then 2x4's screwed in at each corner to hold it up.

Next weekend we'll lift it higher to get clearance for the wheel wells, then build cross bracing and legs to the shop floor to hold it up by itself.

One long Winter!
After pulling out the interior of the trailer we had plenty of time to strip the interior panels seeing how the winter lasted 6 months.

The person I decided to have paint the trailer frame was using epoxy paint and didn't have enough inside space to paint, so we needed to wait for the weather to warm up enough for him to do it outside.

It finally came back last week.
Yesterday we started back into it.

Freshly painted frame. It's a pity to cover it all up, It's beautiful. It's a good thing we'll see the bumper and the hitch.


The first insulated floor panel.


We decided to paint the wheel wells so this is how far we got today.


On a personal note, we are moving to Portland.
My wife starts her new job today there, and I'm here selling our house, and getting the trailer ready enough to make the 2000 mile journey.
Yes the last two winters were enough for us.

Do you know anybody that needs a snowblower?

Finished the floor and wells today.
Maybe we'll just pull it around to motorcycle rally's as a dance floor.
