Yesterday's JunkYard Find - 1956

After seeing that great wet bath in Flying Cloud # 8056 I've been thinking I need to figure out how I would work it into the restoration of my 56 F/C. Yesterday I was searching for tail lights and the little light with red lens that goes over the license plate. I found an old 50's Spartan, I think, that had the items I needed. Just for grins I decided to see what the interior looked like.When I found the trailer had a wet bath with a pedestal,I couldn't believe it. What are the odds of getting three items I needed off one old junked trailer ? I think I'll go buy a Lotto ticket Here are a couple of pics of the thing. After stripping some paint I found the dented areas on the curve. This may end up being a great template.

Very cool! Seems like it'd be pretty easy to replace the damaged panels of aluminum with new sheets...the most unique parts (the sink/faucet/doors) look good enough to be salvaged....or at least used as templates. Having something to "go by" is half the battle in figuring things out ~

Nice find!!
Is this going on an inside wall or getting modified to fit in the curve?
