Hey Marc I made a template out of luan for the bolt holes and marked them. I used one of the holes on the axles ( in the picture on the right) I used a 3/4 " bit with a 1/2" drive and my arms shoulders neck fore arms forehead toes wrist etc are very sore

Good work!! It must be great to have it all back together now. I was wondering if we are going to need another four people to help get our shell back on when we get to that point or can it be done with less? Any hints you have for us?
Sandy

@mrgreen Thanks me too!
@Sandy It was more like an excuse to drink beer with my friends, but you will need a couple extra hands for a long trailer. You have a 31' correct? Just make sure to go slow and keep the frame level. I set it down a bit too hard and damaged the rear curb side pretty good so that was a $200 mistake
@Marc Yeah it was a big pain to land it square in fact it still needs to be nudged. I have to repair the rear curb side corner so bucking rivets will the next step. Wish me luck.....

@ StPierre I used Polyiso (at lowes called RMax) I glued two layers and taped them. Hope to get started on the buck riveting this weekend.

So when you said you put it down too hard and it got some damage, does that mean you dropped it or went too fast with the jacks letting it down? Husband says he wants to be the only person doing the lowering down because he is not wanting any disasters. That and most of the people we know are as old as we are or older so lots of lifting by human muscle alone are not options. We might have to borrow some of your friends....
Sandy

@ StPierre Sorry I used PL 200 construction adhesive. It is used to bond material to sub floor plywood.
@Sandy I would strongly suggest that your husband have at least a friend or two to help level and square the shell. I am haveing a few problems right now with the shell sitting slightly forward. The lifting is done with bottle jacks and floor jacks. The damage was from a slight mis calculation on my part. I had the floor channel slightly longer than the trailer. Unfortunately the rear channel was missing when I bought the trailer. So I didn't have great measurements to go by. Remember to measure everything!!!!!!!

Haha no but it got the shell where it needed to be. Drilled out new holes to get ready for bucking rivets. Hopefully more pics to come.
