First Zipp Dee

Got the rail area polished for the window Zip Dee awning done and installed. Hard work by yourself . I like the way it came out . Didnít have enough room to spin the ront arm over 15 times . Did manage to do 5 turns with a wrench. When I get the tires on and roll it out Iíll do the last 10 .

Will start the full awning tomorrow as the rail is already installed. May need some help with it as itís heavier.Click image for larger version

The ZipDee awnings will add considerable value to your Overlander, especially a 67 Overlander. I paid plenty extra for the two ZipDee awnings on my 75 Overlander.

Zippy a Dee Do Dah! Shade for the Overlander.

Got the main awning done . Also mounted the tv antenna . Going to play with the solar panels lay out tomorrow and figure out where to run cables.
I’ll take some photos once I get the scaffolding out of the way .
Onward thru the fog of my mind .

In the mean time did some more insulation on the inside and ran some conduit under and through frame for electric of the future . Still working on floor plan with the boss . Gave her till Friday so I know where tv is going to run cable. Did take a shot of new awning in closed positions. BlueClick image for larger version

" Still working on floor plan with the boss . Gave her till Friday "

Careful there. As we say in Conifer, you ought not "poke the bear".

You are making good progress even if you don't where to run a TV cable.

Hey, I got an idea: Don't rig the Overlander with a TV at all. TVs are pretty much useless in this day and age. Rig your trailer with a good hot spot and signal booster instead.

Slowly

The old axels har some ribs sticking up . The previous owner put some chromed kidney bean wheels on that didnít fit right . This deformed the wheel and then where the lug nut tighten down even got cracks in the wheel.
Received my new powder coated wheels came in and will buy some new tires at the end of the month.
Got the other Al. on the other side I staled over the new insulation. Sanded with 180 before mounted . All I have to do is rough up the pop rivets before cleaning and paint . Still waiting for a few more parts before I can mount the ceiling and paint .

Holly cow! Your trailer was heading for a major catastrophic event with the miss-match of bolt circles between wheel and hub. Cracks are not a good thing. New axles and new wheels will solve that problem.

Keep on hanging aluminum inside where you can. I was looking at a painted vintage Airstream interior the other day in the Classified section here on Air Forums. It looked really nice. I left the laminated vinyl on my Overlander, even the printed stuff in the bathroom. My project did not involve a gut job and skin removal.

Amazing renovation, Blue! It is inspiring to watch someone work so efficiently and skillfully, knowing these skills were acquired over a lifetime. I will continue to enjoy your progress.

Finished 99% of he wiring. Got the solar panel glued down and waiting for a little warmer day to chuck the edges. The company they supplied the solar system just sends a bunch of foot and a half long wires with couplers . Not my way of doing them so ordered some ends and will make 6 custom made wires in home runs with no coupleing in line . Parts should be here Friday.

Picked up my two 200 amp /12v batteries and 2000 watt inverter from the fright docks . They donít seam to like to deliver out where I live but every other wee k ?

Iím slow but like a turtle 🐢. I can fix that .
Blue

Ps . I went to get a new windshield in my truck and came home with a new TV .
Got the scaffolding out of the way and took two pictures of the awning curb side .Click image for larger version

Boy I like that Super Duty dually! Texas white none the less. I think that in bed camper in the back ground will be no problem for this truck. I hope you like yours as much as I like mine. Mine is not a dually, but has been a great tow vehicle for us. 5 years and 62k miles without any problems at all.

You will be able to boondock at "the bend" all Speed Week with that solar system. Might still need the generator to run the AC to cool things down for the night, although you Texans are used to hot weather.

So working on finishing up the inside cover up . Doing the last of the insulation and found that the door area had a great place for a leak . Found some plastic covers left over from house build . They worked great .

Put the front fiberglass cover up by my self , it was a lot easier taking it down . Iím getting to old for this heavy lifting . Got the other Al. panels riveted in also .
Only the two 16íx4í ceiling panels left . Think I will need help with them . Boy, I hate to ask for help since I live out of town . Still have to finishing the texture off the nose cap . But if all goes well I should be Abel to paint the first week of December if the weather will cooperate. Blue

Almost

A little more sanding , areal good cleaning, and vacuuming,Iíll be ready to tape and primer.
Got my last panels up but ran out of pop rivets. Thought 400 would be enough .
Need them before paint so I may put in my tanks while waiting . Already fitted , just need to mount and make a bottom pan with insulation . Big panels were a bitch but we got them up .Click image for larger version
