I finally have been able to really get in and start gutting my 1957
Overlander. Most of it is unsalvageable, the wood rotted through and through, mold & mildew throughout-as well as the floor is pretty rotted.
In working at getting the kitchenette and the kitchen sink out (can save the double sink, thank heavens!It's so cool) I noticed some of the copper had turned green in the piping. Not a big deal right, I thought, I can clean it up...then I saw a split in the pipe. And another. And another. The entire system is riddled with splits. I don't see how I can save the copper piping, except tear it out, bring it to a recycle yard, and start from scratch.
I have some help with installing a new system from scratch, but I don't know a whole lot about it. I will need to do all new electrical (as the electrical is original to 1957), plumbing (the pipes are rusty and disgusting) and propane. I've used my Google-Fu and can't seem to find any owner's manuals or anything to 1957
My question is this: while I am not looking at installing the actual propane myself, I will take a stab at plumbing and electrical. Where are some good resources (other than the obvious) a girl can go to edumacate herself on such things?
I'm self taught on lots of things, so I am positive I can learn these things too. I'm just a little stumped on where to start.
