Maybe 2 days and then the shell can be lifted of. Today i cut most of the bolts holding the shell to the frame. Also started to remove some flooring.

tomorrow lifting day?

Maybe tomorrow the shell can be lifted. Inside is loose, all i have to do is cut a few bolts on the outside connected to the outriggers.
Got the Airstream out of the garden to clean the mess underneath it.
Back in place again, so hopefully tomorrow is D-Day

Shell is off!

Today was lifting day!
The shell is off. The frame is still underneath the shell but is loose.

Yay! Congratulations!

Did you add more wood framing inside to ensure that it keeps its shape?

Great work!!!

I love that scaffold system you had. Leave it to the Dutch to have such smart methods.

The removall is removed and it is a lot more shinyer and delivered the frame to the welder. The dog said goodbye to the old frame
