RESOURCE - 1953 Flying Cloud interior panel measurements

Hi All
We recently replaced all the interior panels in our 1953 21' flying cloud.
We created a spread sheet with the measurements for each panel (excluding 13-panel end caps).
The panel labeling is corresponding to our reference photos which I will update this post with soon.

Hopefully it will help someone trying to replace interior panels on their trailer.

Here's a link to the public google doc.

We purchased new end cap pieces from Colin Hyde Trailer Restorations he cuts and pre drills holes into the end cap pieces and we sewed/riveted them together to create a new end cap.

We got all our new aluminum from Air Parts Inc they are super helpful on the phone and will make the ordering process very easy.

Here are photos of the interior panels

Here's the breakdown to decipher my labeling method...
A Panels: Front pieces
B Panels: Passenger side pieces
C Panels: Driver side pieces
D Panels: Ceiling Pieces (these were smaller panels riveted to the large side panels that curved up the wall
E Panels: Rear pieces

All the blue tape is to help clearly show the seams.

This could be my XMas present. I am currently starting a new inner skin project on my 53 Silver Streak Clipper and it appears we share the same 12' middle section and a similar but with less leaves end cap. I am over in Vintage Kin. Great resource.

I was at Colin Hyde's shop in April for a quick consultation. Saw those end cap kits you were using. Brilliant.

Awesome! Do you happen to have any measurements of the exterior aluminum panels for this model?
