Hey Chris, yep the deed is done. I am going to add some back up supports today and start on the frame. Although the supports are beginning to remind me of the Winchester House of Mystery, overbuilding isn't bad. I'm noticing that there wasn't a lot of quality control on these late models. I saw a 65 yesterday, the guy did an incredible job. It was motivating!

Getting closer to getting the floor up. Removed all the tile and carpet and drilled out the elevator bolts (floor bolts). Uwe gave me a great idea on how to do it.

I am pretty tierd and sore, cant wait til I am done with the dirty work. Its funny, I have been re reading some of my favorite threads, they make alot more sense now.

Hey Marzboy the frame looks to be in pretty good shape. It shouldn't take much to get it fixed.
There's nothing like doing it yourself to understand what's been written.
Excellent progress, the tired and sore part will go away in a few months at least or maybe a year once everything is done. LOL

Bolt cutter worked well for me to get the old elevator bolts out after the wood was gone. Looks good!

Thanks guys, you really cant see but there is some signicant damage to the frame to the rear street side, and the front where the tongue meets the frame. I was going to tow it to a welder but I am concerned about frame failure. The shell and the floor may have kept it from breaking! I am going to have a welder come out to me to check it out. It wont be impossible but it wont be simple. I am also going to box the "c" channel to stregnthen the frame. It will add a bit of weight but will be worth it.
The rest of the frame is not too bad though. Some new metal and a little por15 she will be good as new! Now I have to settle on tank design and placement....

Preparing to get back to work on my trailer frame. Practicing welds and teaching my stepson Craig. He is actually really good!!
If all goes well should have the frame welded by the 2nd week of Feb.

Hey marz glad to see you back at it, I had wondered what you were up to. Your'e lucky to have such good weather to work in and now that you have two welders in the family the work should fly along. Post some pics we'd love to see the progress.
Chris.

Hey guys I work a bit here and there. I should post more, but you know.... I am still a bit shaky on my welding so I am going to take a private lesson to get it down. Once the frame is done, things should really pick up. I had an engineer/ pro welder client come out to give me advice on how to "scab" the back of the trailer together. I will post detailed pics as soon as I get to that point (probably in the next few weeks) so stay tuned!!
