John and I have decided to attend our first rally, the Vintage AS Rally in Gonzales Texas, in October. That means we had to kick it up another gear to have more than just a shiny silver shell.
We have made a lot of progress BUT still have a long way to go!
Here are some photos and a partial list of things we've done.
Replaced axles, brakes, shocks, etc. Reworked and reinforced the frame behind the axles. Added a gray water tank.
Completely replumbed the trailer. Replaced the bathroom sub-flooring. Reworking the 12 volt
and 110 volt wiring systems. Removed the belly pans (found 21 dead critters YUCK) and will replace them once we confirm that there are no plumbing leaks. Bought an English Wheel to rework or replace the banana wraps.
Stripped off the nasty old wallpaper and polished the aluminum inside and out (still have 2 more grades of polish to complete on the outside).
Starting to tackle those thousands of little projects - like strip, clean up and refurbish the range vent.
We plan to use just a few interior parts ( the range vent, sink and bed frame). Have new appliances, electric fixtures, commode and shower.
The rest of the interior parts are FREE to anyone that wants to come get them. We are in Longview, Texas ( 2 hours east of Dallas).
Starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel- or is that a train?
