64 Safari "The Pill". Rebuild, not restore.

I will start off by apologizing to all the purists out there. I won't be restoring this Safari to its original glory, it's going to start a new life as an edit suite with a bar/lounge, and will easily convert to a sleeper for camping. No bathroom, but possibly a stove, fridge, and sink.
I rescued the Pill from a California desert for a very decent price, and it had been neglected and trashed.
It's missing windows, lights, nothing works, but still it's irresistible.

I drug it home, an hour and a half on the freeway with no lights, and didn't get pulled over thankfully, and as luck would have it, the brakes didn't decide to lock up until I was half a block from my driveway.

First thing is a new floor. I will spare everyone from what I found in the walls and under the floor. I know that vintage trailers will almost always have had rodents living in the insulation, but I was not prepared for the horror I uncovered. It literally looked like a Halloween store rotted and burned, and then was stuffed under my floor. Nightmare material.

Ok, here is a terrible night shot, but everything is out and fairly clean. I was stoked to see that there is no frame rust/damage or c-channel corrosion. Although the wiring through the frame had been mostly eaten by the pervious tenants, it's no longer a mystery as to why the towing lights didn't work. I will post a better pic in the morning when I have some light.

Yesterday I managed to get the two ends of the floor replaced. It was pretty tough to fit them into place with the shell attached. I prepped and sealed the framing and put new insulation. I'm going to replace the wire loom in the floor before putting the rest of the subfloor in.
