door back together

Been working on the door down in the basement this winter and
starting to put it back together, very easy to compound when door is
disassembled. Have parts out to the chromer, hope to finish soon.............

I think we are running parallel projects! I posted an update this week (starting at #168) on all our winter projects too. Looking at yours, I got confused and thought I was looking at my pictures - door, hardware, accessories, frame...except for the shiny interior!

Looks good!

drip cap

Fabricated a new drip cap, took the old drip cap and flatted it out with a rubber mallet, traced it on to a piece of 2024-T3 aluminum. Using a metal brake, bent edge and the part that fasten to the trailer was done by hand.
Then very slowly form to shape using my leg.

Replacing back tail lights

Replacing the tail light back to Bargman No.9 Trim Rings, bought the trim rings from Vintage Trailer Supply - Vintage travel trailer parts and supplies! with No. 6 lens also from vintage trailers. Found the housing from
Tractor Supply Company - Combination Stop/Tail/Turn Light which is a perfect fit.

frame repair

My frame is in good shape except for one hole, took (2) 2"x2"x36" angle iron
and weld just under the hole, according to the expert's should be good to go. Removed the old short angle iron shown on the outside, and added new longer for additional support. Will be painting the frame with por-15 then will start the flooring. Decided to go with 5/8" AC plywood, with this restoration weight is a concern, plus the frame flexes very much and didn't want to make it to ridged. Also I plan no insulation under the floor, 3 of the cells will have tanks, black and 2 gray's, so there is no room for the insulation in those cells, and once water does get to the insulation could cause other problems.

POR 15 is a remarkable product

POR 15 is a remarkable product, its going to take about 1 gallon (using 1 quart cans) to complete the job and that is with 2 coats..............

Actually Toastie we met once at the LPPI a couple years ago. My restoration project is going well and I will be pulling it home in the next couple weeks. My family and I will be at the TCT May rally, but with our 74. I look forward to talking with you particularly about electrical.

marinco

Installed a Marinco 30 amp inlet today, part number 304EL-B, 30SSEL-B, to fasten, I used Olympic rivets, compressed the gasket perfectly.

Toastie,

I love the Marinco install, I was considering the same one for our '56. Did you have to open the hole up for it?
