Itís hot in Texas !

Because of the heat only working a couple of hours a day . Got my black tank all cut into the rear subfloor ,put a piece of 1Ē insulation on top and itís pulled up tight to floor . Will do finishing on mounts after floor is all screwed down .

My axels will be here tomorrow and will have them all mounted by the end of the day on Tuesday if all goes well . Then I will true up frame and screw it all down after mounting the last two boards which Iíve already cut and finished .
Hard to get good photos from underneath with my pos camera. I am happy with the way the fit of the rear subfloor .

Axels got here today . One day late but thatís not bad for living out in the last frontier. Been working under the frame not much to report . Will have to drill new 5/8 holes through frame for axel . Maybe tomorrow Iíll get it done if not too hot . Not looking to unload and put in position by my self . Itís all good , no rest for the wicked .

Running gear in . Another fix .

Got the axels in yesterday and did the shocks this morning. If you are going to replace your axels : suggestion 1 grind the fillet weld a little on both sides of the tube , fits much better .
2 the mount plate is not the same size as original or holes not in same place . Making a pattern of hole placement and pre drilling ahead of time would make it easier .
3 if you have your floors out mount the axels before installing new ones. I done up to wheel wells and the two front holes were not easy . Also got new shocks mounted up . Had to replace two of the studs on frame .

Wife still stripping interior panels on her days off .

Try to finish wheel tubs and floor next . Thanks for watching . Blue

I did my axle while the floor was out too.
Pretty sure that made it a whole lot easier.

Hi Joyflea: I stumbled onto your "I can fix that" project thread and thought I would follow along. "I can fix that" applies to me only on lesser items; e.g. not including frame welding.

I did quite a bit of "fixing" on a 66 Trade Wind twin bed, one year older than your Overlander, and 2' shorter. The trailers have a lot of similarity. I see yours is the "International" trim level. Mine was not.

I hear ya on the heat. We've had a hot, dry summer here in Colorado and I'll be glad when it is over. I hope my place doesn't burn up. Minno speaks of Minnesota winters. I'll take that anyday over this dog gone heat.

Here are a couple photos of my old Trade Wind. I traded it for a 75 Overlander last year, and that's what I'm working on now. It needed some fixing. It may take me 4+ years, but not because of work, or weather, or what else, only because I'm really slow. I spent 3 years on the Trade Wind.

We did make a new axle hole location template when I installed my new axles. It helped. Say, what kind of drill tool did you use to poke new 5/8" axle bolt holes in your axle plate? A twist drill, or maybe one of those step drills? I've got that job to do on my Overlander.

Drilling

[5/8 drift , centerpunch, centerdrill,1/4Ē,3/8Ē,1/2Ē and then 5/8 . Seamed to go pretty fast . I donít use step drills on material thicker than 3/16Ē seams to wear them out faster due to heat .
Love the 66 .

Viva Big Bend

We are having a music festival in Alpine this Th/ Su . So I wonít get much done over the week end . I did get up early this morn and used my Beverly shear to cut up my corners for the tubs . Cleaned them and flanges with acid , cleaned with a base to kill the acid , tinted and leaded them in . Will seam seal inside laps in morn and mount . This is fun but itís been 30 years since I did gal sm . If you try this be very careful, Muratic acid is dangerous. BlueClick image for larger version

Isn't muratic acid what we clean cement mixer drums with?

Thanks for sharing your 5/8" drilling process. That's the one I use so now I don't feel dumb at all. I figured the good guys used step drills.

You are very skilled and have a very nice shop. You really can "fix that".

Have fun at the town music festival.

David

Drill the two holes in my gray tank and glued in fittings . Positioned the tank where it goes so I could get my measurements for cutting the last floor board .
Seam sealed the wheel tubs and mounted into position . Used rubber roof tape and seam sealer on them . After the floor is straight and level and screwed sturdy I will coat the inside of them in rubberized undercoat . I guess Iíll have to mount the last board in two pieces unless Iím missing something ?

Making fantastic progress. How did you get the inside of the exterior skins so clean? They look brand new.

That must be a Texas "high" pressure washer. You sure did a good job cleaning them up.
