I guess from the looks of it the frame metal was originally unprotected? What are you going to do to protect the new frame you put in from further damage when things leak in the future? Too bad it's too big to powdercoat.

You guys doing shell-off repairs are the heros of our hobby! Keep up the good work - saving those old AS!

Frame repair

Stephanie, I don't know what Greg is doing, but my frame got totally brushed and sandblasted, then two full coats of POR-15 followed by a matt black topcoat. So far I've spent about $300 on paint and brushes.
The original paint on the frame was a thin coat of black lacquer.

I spent the winter building a new frame on top of the old one. The frame "C" channel came in 20 ft lengths so I built the first 20 ft of new trailer first inside shell to keep the rain off.I took last week off of work to swap out the old frame with the new. I had to torch up the old frame then drop the new frame down on the new axles then roll it forward and level.With the added height of the new axles I had to lift the shell about six inches then level everything.I spent the week installing axles,welding on outriggers,grinding and painting.This weekend I am going to build up last six feet of frame.
Here is a photo of shell just before I dropped new frame down.I will attach more photos of frame as soon as I have finished back end.Looking forward to getting a floor in.

Well, I finished the frame yesterday.I had been waiting for the grey water tank to come.It arrived last week and I was able to weld in the last crossmember to allow the tank to fit.I'll post a few more pictures soon.

Nice, very nice, indeed. Great work!
You're a few steps ahead of me - I'm still removing rivets to lift the shell off.
Keep us posted!

New axles?

greg176,

You mentioned having bought new axles from a Calgary based company whose web-site is www.standens.com. Are your axles the leaf spring type? The comapnies web-site says that they can also supply rubber torsion axles. I was just wondering if they are an alternative source for torsion axles.

Malcolm

They are the rubber torsion axles.Standens has a great reputation around here and I would not hesitate to use them again.I had the axles delivered to my home in three days made to my specs for one third the price of the henschens.

I checked the web site www.standens.com , it said they had torsion axels but offered no information on them, did I miss a link?

No you did not miss a link.You have to contact them with dimensions you need.The main reason I bought from Standens was that they are in Canada and saved me customs and delivery problems, if you are in the states it would be easier to buy from an American supplier.
