This is how I did mine, http://www.airforums.com/forums/f36/...-38289-14.html , pages #14, #15 and #16, post #210 and #213 very important. To replace tank, cut rods, there is enough room to install new rods.

Thanks Toastie and Steve, I picked up a better shower drain fitting today at HDepot, it should make it seal better. Also picked up some couplings that would allow the tanks to come out easier.

Plumbing

Pluming progress, I think I have it worked out so tanks could be removed if needed but hopefully never have to, never have on any of the SOB's that we have had. Vanity will go over the wheel well, just like original.

Tanks

Tanks are in and hooked up installed a bypass between the top of the two tanks, should add a little more grey tank capacity if needed.

Made up the vent cover for the stove vent, need to cut out the counter yet.

Nice trip to Ikea today, way to busy for me! We were successful at finding a nice bathroom faucet, small aluminum curtain rods, bed spreads and pillows and a few accessories for the kitchen!

Bathroom vanity

Started the vanity layout, going to keep the approximate shape of the original.

Weigh in time

Nellie's weight is at a slim 3300LBS, with maybe another hundred pounds or so of finish work left. A lot lighter then the SOB's we have had in the past.

I can't post pictures yet but just closed a deal on the next piece of aluminum, picking it up next weekend. It is older then Nellie and a little shorter!

Bathroom vanity

Made the vanity top today, finished wiring the electric brakes and worked out a deal for the next project, pretty good day so far.

That is the only picture i have so far, its going to be a long week! He tells me the inside is in fairly good condition and mostly original. I missed a similar trailer last year by 15 minutes so very happy for the chance to work on this one. Even though I know it will take years.

Hey Brad, The sink was pretty chipped and rusted so just sanded and four coats of chevy orange spray enamel.

Can't stop looking at Curtis Wright trailers now, it could be a early 50's silver streak also. Looking forward to the road trip next Saturday.
