Detailed restoration

I'm looking fir a very detailed forum that I can use as a reference.

For example a question I have today is that my frame is very rusted and needs repaired in a few areas. Can I weld all this with the belt pan on??

I did some frame welding repairs on my 1976 trailer with the wood floor section removed, insulation out, and belly pan still on. The damage on my trailer was frame cross member top damage from a roof vent leaking. After the repairs I applied POR-15 to all the exposed steel.

There are many people on this forum that have done minor and major restorations and refurbishments of their A.S.'s If you search in the specific area you are interested in at the time, you will find a wealth of info. We did frame welding on our trailer (see Little Girl Refurb) and it's detailed in our thread. We are using others threads for info as we refurb ours. Keep reading, and good luck!

I suspect it is going to depend on where you want to weld as well as who is welding. I have damaged frame rails at the back of my trailer. I have to drop the belly pan, the waste tanks, their tray and the insulation to get to what I need to do. I am also going to have the plywood flooring cut out in that area because it needs to be replaced.

The less stuff in the way the easier the welding is going to be up to a point.
