The floor is in!!!

Well finally got around to putting in the rear floor replacement.
Used Marine Grade plywood (stuff is expensive(120$ for one sheet))



Painted the top and edges with a latex outdoor pain.



This process took a lot of "persuation"



This rear angle iron brace was in pretty haggard condition.



So it was coated with the last of the Silver POR-15 for the frame.



Forgot to take a pic of the painted frame before i put the new floor in...

Well had to move the AS to my friends shop with a large gated yard.




My electrician friend came by and we decided to tear out the original 12v loom and are going to completely rewire.




Hope everyone is doing well.

Hope you're doing well, looks like brains spilled out, oh sorry just wire.
Floor and frame looks good. Hope you made a map for all the 12v wire locations.

No regrets

Your making good progress. Check out my pics of my 72/21 globetrotter, on my photo page.

Oh, you would never regret a natures head composting toilet. Very convenient.

From the road, good luck.

Back on the grind

Well it sure has been a while since ive been posting on this site. Ive had plenty of distractions and a great summer. But now its time to get working on the GT again.

Here is the major distraction, doing valves and points on it right now.
Got it as a basket case.


On to the trailer.
Well i had my electrician friend help me rewire the trailer, this was a mistake.
He used solid instead of stranded, now i come back to the trailer 6 months later and i have no idea what is going on with it. Might redo all the 12v so at least ill know exactly whats going on with everything and have stranded wires.


We started on the insulation process. I hope we are doing it correctly. We are getting more proficient with every section but it is tedious.

This was satisfying.


One of about 5 patches, i enjoyed making them.


Fan-Tastic Vents!


Clecos are amazing


Inner walls are in, I wish i never stripped the zolatone off the walls, wish i would have just painted them white.

Now i need to clean and put a bit of a polish to them. Lots and lots of work left but i'm excited to start building the interior.

Assuming you will be replacing the 45 year old black water tank. I just did mine. Available from Vintage Trailer Supply and Inland RV. VTS still has new Thetford dump valves, Send me a PM or post if you have any questions.

BTW I have a 200+ page 1975 SERVICE manual if you are interested.
