gray tank

We used a Ronco Plastics 17H 25 gal tank. Even though I woke up some nights thinking "what the heck"? So far it has turned out all right and it has been fun.

Why did you wake up and think: "what the heck"? Are you having gray tank remorse? This must be a warning . . . and I've been sleeping soooooo well.

Eastern South Dakota is very pretty with hills, rivers, and trees.

I've woke up many nights thinking about lots of different parts of the Cruiser. Don't let it become a habit.

Iam about ready to start removing the rotten sections of my sub floor. I would like to do what you did and use the old front section as a templet if I can get out in one piece. I understand the elevator bolts that hold the plywood down where it passes under the "c" channel but I don't see how the other side of the subfloor is attached whwe it butts up to the next section of plywood is it screwed in place from under the trailer?

Tracker, There are elevator bolts in the center area also, I cut many of these off with a small angle grinder or if you can get to the nuts on the bottom I snapped quite a few off with a wrench by tightening them. Wasn't really to much fun! A big sheet of cardboard makes a good template also.
Good luck
Doug

I think what you are asking is how the plywood is joined together right? It is joined underneath by strips of plywood (sorry I don't have the exact dimensions) you need to remove part of the belly pan to access this area.
also this is how I removed my elevator bolts. http://www.airforums.com/forums/f36/1965-rehab-71458-3.html#post924149 check out my thread post #32.
St Pierre sorry if I hijacked your thread, nice work BTW.

Tracker You may have to remove the sub floor to the first joint . At that point you will find two scabs at a frame cross member . As marzboy said you will have to pull the belly pan . Sounds harder than it is GOOD LUCK . Marzboy not a problem all help is good.

Taillight rebuilding complete

Completed the rebuilding of the taillight housings. One thing I learned, if you think you have it sanded smooth enough, sand some more!

We have checked all our wiring, that looks good. We have pre-wired for the microwave my wife can't live without! All lights inside and out check out good. Is there anything I am forgetting before I put the insulation and the interior walls back on?

Our '65 Safari still has the original TV antenna. Does anyone still use this original TV antenna? Seems like most of the pictures of Safari's we see do not still have the original antenna.

Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse... but you take a boat in the air that you don't love... she'll shake you off just as sure as the turn of the worlds.

Hahaha I know! I have to really work on my fiberglass/bondo skill. Your light houseing looks great.
