I'm a new, proud owner of a 1968
20' Land yacht Globetrotter.
I found her on Craigslist in Sedona AZ. I rigged some lights, packed the bearings and replaced the tires before bringing her home to So Cal. She pulled like a dream down the 17 to the 10 and home. We even drove through wind and rain the entire trip and no problems.
The interior has been completely removed and sold by the previous owners. The only things left are the control box, fuse box and a few receptacles and light switches. The control box is incredibly cool and retro so I'd like to salvage it and incorporate it into the modernization. Any ideas how or where i can fix it? Thankfully the floors, windows and exterior are in excellent condition. What's the best way to clean the rust off of the window frames and hardware? I haven't pulled the belly pan yet so not sure the condition of the frame. Can anyone tell me any advice on how to restore/replace the brakes.
My other issue is since I have no original interior, only pics, I'm not sure to modernize or restore. I think I'd like to modernize but without the old interior for ideas and templates I'm feeling a little out of my league. Any ideas? What about a new bath. Where in gods green earth can I find modern bathroom fixtures to fit the curves and space available?
It looks like I'll need to re-wire her so does anyone know where I can get the schematics for that year, make and model?
As you can surely tell I'm a beginner at this so any advice would be greatly appreciated.
