Steve, I did the whole frame except the steel under the plywood floor since the floor was left in place.

I removed belly pans, all the pink insulation and scraped and POR'd all visable steel.

Forget the compressor, just pump in the pink antifreeze,
I've been doing my boats like that for 30+years.

If the lines have antifreeze their safe, they don't need to be empty.

I was thinking in bolting it on just to move it without the plywood, do you think that would work, at most some temp bracing.

HamiBambi is Back!

Hey Everyone,

So I know a few years have passed. Lots has happened, but the good news is I sort of have a place now to resume work on the Bambi and the shell is done and the interior is in the works! There's almost too much to report so I'll let it come out little by little. So I just wanted you all to know that I'm building the interior cabinets out of some beautiful teak plywood and will be posting pix and progress as it comes along.

Just to whet your whistles here's a picture of the overhead cabinet faces, the drawer face and frame for the goucho bed, and since vintage trailer supply has had the hardwood bed slides on backorder for 6 months I've gone ahead and cut my own plywood versions. I'm copying for the most part the original goucho but I'm making it a little deeper and because I moved the water tank under the bed I had to make the bed taller. All good except I realize now my folding legs from the original are now too short. Does anybody know where to get a good set of folding legs that are 18" tall or can be cut to that length.

It's good to be back. I look forward to hearing from some of my old poster friends. Best! Steve H. (Hamibambi)
