Thank you for "Frame"

It's more clear in my mind now, I hope an answer about the fixations wood frame on body frame and when I'll begin to build the wood frame, I'll post photos before to lift the body.

I thougth I knew many things, I underestimated the difficulty but in fact... I have to learn many things !

Thank you for all your advises.

I have just placed the shell back on my frame after a great deal of repair work. This is a picture of the gantry I built. My shell was suspended from October 22, 2013 until March 2014 without any problems.

As to securing the wooden frames to the airstream frame, I used regular screws. I will post a picture shortly. I'll be interested in seeing the condition of the chassis. Hopefully, there will be little frame rust. I used POR-15 with great results.

Screws into frame

Here's a picture of the securing screws. I have recently lifted a 1961 Bambi. A bit shorter than yours, but same era. www.lilbambi.net

This morning, I've tried to remove the panels under the chassis but...it seems I've missed a step...

What I have seen :

The panels under the chassis are fixed between the exterior sheets and on the frame.

What is the way to remove the sheets under the chassis (without to seprate body from chassis because it isn't for now).

Thanks !
