Should I feel bad?

Tomorrow Im picking up a 1963 Safari that is currently a shell-off restoration project. When the shell was removed the C channel was taken OFF the shell and mounted to the 'new' floor. The shell got torqued a bit in its current position. I was told that all the interior lower panels are included. It looks as if none of the smaller access doors are present. All the glass is good. Jalousie windows look and work great. Exterior panels look good for hte most part, but a ppo painted the trailer a matte finish silver! Some of that has come off. Should I feel bad about parting this out? pics to hopefully be posted tomorrow!

I believe you actually have a '64 Safari here. I count 5 end cap panels. '63 had 7 end cap panels. The "mid ships" curbside door also gives it away as a '64. If I am right, your side windows (not the Jalousie's) are unique to '64 California built coaches as well. I started a thread about '64 Mystery Side Windows linked here. Just to confirm, see if you can pull the serial number from under the Curbside Front Jalousie. My guess is your trailer is built in '63, but it is a '64 model.

Are you actually parting this out? If so, I could use some windows.

Hey Jay,

Thanks for the door. A couple of things you'll want to know. Under the matte silver is a lime green paint, and under that the skin has been sanded with a random orbit sander with 100 grit paper I assume to give the surface grip? Not what we expected to see under all that paint but a sanded door is better then no door. Does anyone have any ideas on how to buff out this much surface damage or should I just paint it lime green again?

There is the coarse polishing stuff you can get from here Nuvite Polish

You could also try a rubbing compound. But those must be some pretty deep scratches. with some nice swirl marks. green isn't all that bad. "well thats what you can keep telling yourself" "Green?" What were they thinking?
