interior panels are starting to come down. got the frame supported with two jacks at the bumper to prevent sagging as the structure gets weakened by the lack of internal sheets. the ceiling panel is supported so it doesn't come down on top of us as we remove the rivets. and we're finding all sorts of nastiness behind the walls.... (yes that's a section of solid mouse poop under the panel)


btw, is there a trick to uploading pics in portrait format? mine always end up on their side once uploaded.

got a lot done this week. all interior skin and insulation is out!

the plan is to go for shell off. any suggestions regarding bracing design?

also, around the ceiling curve there seem to be several ribs running fore-aft that are not riveted to the exterior skin (see last pic). does anyone know what those are for? seems like the interior skin makes them redundant. can they be removed and discarded?

looking ahead, has anyone figured out a sound way to re-engineer the floor/frame/skin connection? in the future, i'd like to have a way to replace the floor without messing with that connection, so i'd rather avoid having the floor run all the way btwn the floor c-channel and the frame. additionally, it would be great to make that connection such that the belly pan could be replaced (in case of dents, etc.) without removing the interior skins, etc. has anyone seen a thread with the solution to all this?

thanks and more soon....

Unless you someone helping or done the work it's labor intense. Not sure you'll be able to meet your timeline. But it can be done

Looking good! You might want to remove the window cranks so you don't risk hitting one when installing the bracing and breaking it off.

Keep it up. Looking good. Having a building to work in makes a difference. I lose my mojo after it gets dark. At this pace you might make it in 4 months 😀

the wheel wells are off and now i think i've really reached the point of maximum deconstruction. feels good! and daunting!

a few questions for y'all....

any recommendations for spec'ing/sourcing shocks and axils?

is there any reason to replace the tire rims? (see pic below)

also what's the best replacement for the water inlet? the fiberglass is all rotted out on mine (see pics). is there an off the shelf replacement part?

also, looking ahead, what are the hardest parts to source (trim, lights, lenses, skylight, etc.)? can i get all this new, or should i start hunting for vintage parts?
