Our '65 Overlander overhaul

Hello to the Airforums community at large. We are doing a frame-up overhaul on a 26-foot 65' Overlander. We found it in the desert and pulled it back to the beach in SoCal. Here are some images of our start.

Welcome to Airforums. You have a great find. Does it have any of the original mohagany? We are kind of partial to 65s so best of luck and please keep posting pics of your progress.

Hi Tim,

Thanks for the warm welcome. It had most of the original mahogany, but it had been sitting for 30 years and was full of rat and bird sh*t, and nests. We are going to take it down to the frame and start over with a bit of a more modern approach on the interior. We will post more as we go. Thanks again.

Demolition time

We demo'd most of the interior of our Overlander. Just have a little bit to go. I have pictures, see below. Now we have to get the bottom interior panels off and start on the subfloor removal. I know that the demolition is the easy part. We're looking forward to getting on the upswing of the restoration.
