Not much new to report, continuing to prepare for shell-off floor repair. Dad has removed all the lower interior panels in preparation and is working on removing the belly pan & banana wrap rivets. The lumber is for blocking up the shell but handy to walk on in the meantime!
My brother will be here tomorrow to help with the rest of the process. He's got a welder/fabricator lined up for frame repair.

GlobeTrotter lettering question

Any ideas out there on how to make these look better? Is there a thread out there that discusses this?
Thanks in advance!

Great thread and an even better Dad!

Watch out for leaks behind that scripted logo. We took ours to a re-chromer and had it redone for $75.

Smile Taking it off...taking it ALL off...

Well, the shell if off and she's up on blocks.
Unfortunately I was in the driver's seat pulling the frame out from underneath so I didn't get a good view of the whole show.

Welder is coming tomorrow to look at the frame now that it's fully exposed. We're hoping to put her back together next weekend...we'll see...

I'm envious of the progress you are making. When you get done you can bring your dad out to Oklahoma and help me with mine.

Nice work!

You did anchor that shell down right? Winds have a way of getting under and flipping them...... then what you have is a parts trailer! Best to lower it to the ground if you can

Thanks for the tip. We actually have it strapped with freight lines to stakes in the ground on one side and a vehicle on the other. We did that right after the last picture was taken. We don't want any accidents!

Thanks for the tip, though, we might have spaced on that. Thanks for keeping us grounded!

Sorry, I think somewhere tropical is in order!

(Besides, my sister is already in line with a project on her Scamp!)

It's great to see all this progress!

Take advantage of these warm, Northwest, Indian-summer days while you can. We all know what the weather is soon going to be in our neck of the woods. I know you get that weather first, then send it our way!

We could use the rain right now, but I'm not looking forward to it! And it's usually snow by the time it reaches you!

Welding and POR-15 complete

Trixie is back from the welder with 3 new cross-members, a new outrigger, and a reinforced drop-step. I just completed the second coat of POR-15 and am TIRED but really excited.

Sweet work. You need to give that dad extra hugs!!!

It's so cool to take something that others have given up on and put it right again. Even cooler that it was your family's to begin with.
