Yeah, I noticed your Baby.. sure looks sweet. picture below is my “Baby”

Just one little advice... i have seen people outfitting their trailers without paying attention to any structural issues. Do your Camper right from the ground up and take your time.. you can always take it camping, once the shell and floor is done, by just using a mattress and a cooler other people here have done it before too..
and feel free to ask plenty of questions.

That's a nice ride submariner. Nothing like a bunch of southern boys in the forum. And we plan on working on the frame and floor before we do any updating. Just curious would you do the floor/frame first? Or would you do the walls/wiring/insulation first? It's not moving till both are done anyway.

In easy terms: remove interior walls, pull shell off, disassemble frame and floor, fix, build frame and install new floor, insulate, re-install your belly pan and then re-install the shell.. Then seal, insulate, wiring, interior walls.. And then start building interior....

Make sure you take tons of pictures when you tear things apart. They will help you get it back together again later. Even if you plan on reinventing your interior, the walls can be used for patterns of your curves for your new walls, cabinet curves, etc. Make a pile & throw it out when you're finished. I went to my pile more times than I can count! Your trailer looks very much like my Bambi II when I found her. This is the link to the rebuild: http://www.airforums.com/forums/f147...ler-75011.html
Take your time planning & make sure you do lots of surfing for ideas. It's a very rewarding project! I look forward to watching you! :-)

Thanks beckybillrae. I've got about 100 pictures and I'm just to the point in the last pics I put on here. And thanks for the link to; I'm gonna go check it out and look at what you did with your Bambi.

Maybe we need to start a "Baby" thread?

Hello from another Mississippian!!! You have made a great find!! Be sure to check out HiHoAgRV's detailed thread on his '63 Overlander.
Good luck with your project.

Nice truck wahoonc. Maybe we need to start an airstream/f350 forum? Seems everyone on here relies on one.
And thanks overlander and sea. I appreciate the advice. And it seems like us Mississippians are growing in numbers and making up for a large part of the forum.

For your reference, here are the links to two of my project :
1948 liner that I am currently restoring :
http://www.airforums.com/forums/f59/...on-113774.html

And here the link to my overlander I did a while back :
http://www.airforums.com/forums/f109...ion-78252.html

This should give you some ideas . Hope the links worked as I'm doing it on my phone .

Just wanna update y'all. Like I said we are not in a hurry so posting will happen only once we get time to put in work. Figured we would go ahead and strip interior aluminium of paint and zolatone while it's in place. It is messy but citristrip works wonders. It's a heck of a lot easier than I was dreading it would be. We are doing a little at a time till we get everything bare aluminium. Then we are gonna label and remove to do insulation and wiring. Once all panels are reinstalled we plan to polish them. Click image for larger version

And by the way how would you recommend polishing the panels and also when we removed zolatone panels were pitted; how do you remove that? Thanks.

I had quite a bit of pitting in my interior panels too. After the stripping was done I fine sanded mine starting (I think) with 400 and working finer and finer before polishing. Don't think you'll get all the pitting out, but I don't notice it in mine--it looks good enough for me.

Think about pulling those panels off and stripping outside on a flat surface. Sure worked easier for me and you'll need to pull the panels off anyway.

Cheers,
Steve
