Shower stall removal in a '55 Flying Cloud

Could someone please give me an idea on how to remove the bathroom stall that appears to be one separate piece.The floor is rotten underneath. Does all the exterior wood of the stall have to be removed first? Cannot seem to find what is holding it in place so well. Is it glued to the bulkhead? It seems it would slide out of the two "tracks" on either side along bulkhead. Anyway Id rather ask questions than rip it out, as its in fairly good condition. Would sincerely appreciate any help from someone who has this trailer or knows what to do. Thanks!

Answered my own question

I answered my own question regarding the shower stall removal. Not so bad after all. Lots of careful tugging with intention. Once I got it loose, I then figured out how to carefully disassemble the three pieces to get it outside for salvage or as pattern. Anyway I am now looking at the probability of a body off restoration...Any ideas or suggestions regarding anything are much appreciated. Thanks

Hi and welcome to the 55fc club. the more time you spend researching here the less mistakes you will make but you will still make many

Body Off '55 FC

This past week has been a bit nerve racking getting the body off the trailer of my 55 Flying Cloud off and secured, so to begin it's complete restoration.
Using basically what we have available to accomplish the feat of lifting the body and removing the trailer, without a catastrophe so far. I have become a pretty good rivet remover... It has become clear that this will be a very long and delicate process, but myself and a couple of really sincere and tenacious friends will eventually figure it out one step at a time...
Not having an indoor available facility, we are undertaking the process outdoors. Not the ideal situation realized, but it'll have to do.
Any help anyone would like to offer or interject is appreciated.
