floor no more

Drilled out the sub-floor today. I also started removing the foam insulation. What a mess that made. I will make a list in the next few days of what metal I need, and hopefully, I will be welding soon.

Some progress

Some progress, but plenty more to go. I sandblasted the frame, had some fresh metal welded in and gave the frame some paint. She got new axles from Collin (great experience and probably the easiest part of the job so far. She also got new shocks, the original rims sandblasted and painted and some new tires. I used 3/4 MDO for the new subfloor and chromatic sign paint to waterproof the wood. After that I put the shell back on using two floor jacks and blood pressure medication. It did not go great and the shell suffered some damage but it was all in areas that I was in need of repairing regardless. Next I have all the rear panels to replace and some more exterior metal work. Now she waits for me till spring.
