How much bracing for a shell off?
I bought a 1975 31 footer rear bath 2 weeks ago. I knew it was a fixer upper. I found the rear 12 to 18 inches of plywood was history, also someone left the front window open for 6 years so I have some floor rot in front approx. 12" x 12". The street side rear frame from bumper inboard 4 feet needs replacement.
Inspection of the frame shows someone installed the frame supports at the axles.There is a lot of severe rust behind the bolt mounted frame doubler. Most of the out riggers need to be replaced, with some frame horizontal members need the bottoms repaired.
So I have decided to take the shell off. I read one thread were some one pulls the shell off with 2 a frames and 2 chain hoist, with a 2x6 on the roof.
If I remember, he used no braces inside the shell. Is this right ?
i have the shell gutted and starting to drill out the rivets, so Im not to far from the starting of the lift. Also the belly pan is off and the pink monster has been trashed, thank god.
Any and all advise will be appreciated
