Man! That is so cool lookin! Now you need an equaly cool TV. Say a 1937 Studebaker Coupe Express pick up with a Cuminns drive train. Just a thought.

Tail lights

Jason,

The lenses are available at Vintage Trailer Supply, in plastic. The rings and plates for the bulbs along with glass lenses are available on Ebay from time to time. They were used on many vintage trailers in the early 1950's

Good Luck

Good luck on the recovery! I look forward to following it.. I wish it was a 14.5" based tire setup.. you could join our Airstream Lowrider sub club...

As I said in the other thread....I cannot wait to see what you do with this trailer. The footer is amazing, and with 11-12 more feet for your mind to run wild....we will all look forward to seeing what happens.

I might put a bowling alley in this one, or at the very least a pool table. ha!

Gonna be interesting, that's for sure. This is DEFINITELY the slow, back-burner resto deal, though. I'm not kidding myself into believing it'll be done in the next 24 months... especially with my schedule!

14.5 low-rider, huh? My tradewind almost drags coming in the driveway NOW! But it's got radials on it... that drops it an inch or so... does that count?

:-D

Trust me..

The big one's are cool. but take more $$$ and more time than I ever imagined...still working on the SOTR since July 05.. well, more like Nov 05 since the work started....

if your Trade Wind is draggin... then this one definately will.. better get some boards for bridging to raise it up... that's probably the worst part of the low rider....

i'm giving myself 5 years, just to be safe. I may have to regrade the drive to smooth out the dip.

One thing I'm considering is having the axles replaced with new tortions from Dexter. I think that might raise the height a bit and give it a smoother ride, though it would be a fair expense to ditch all the leafs and current set up. I think Dacia is doing that to hers, isn't she?

Anyway, got my tires, grease, tape and rope! Need to find the temp lights and I think I'm set for the AM.

Bring more wire

This is a longer trailer... bring extra wire for your lights, or go get an extender...

What... no low rider... man!

Good luck!

Rob

Rob thinks EVERYONE should have a lowrider trailer, don't worry about THAT.

Personally, I'm looking forward to gaining a little clearance when I install new axles next year. My new gray tank hangs a few inches below the belly and I'd like to give it a bit more clearance.

I'm also chuckling at the idea of JP thinking of a "long" restoration for this Liner, since the resto of his '59 is now in its 4th or 5th year...

Anyway, love the idea of a pool table. Keep noodling on that one...

I thought you were punning "long", as it is only 12 feet longer than the pickle! ha!

I have 5 tires all aired up and in the back of the truck.... GPS programmed... tools loaded... cash in hand! How exciting! I'm FINALLY getting a 13 panel!!

I hope it's an eventless trip! 7 1/2 hours each way is a long drive, no matter how you look at it...

Count me in the group wishing you luck! There is nothing like the feeling when you get to see her for the first time... and then hook-up and tow.

I've done it three times now and each time I say to myself, whatever happens, Rob has been through worse.

Keeping my fingers crossed... good luck!

ANYWAY, i've had my share of mishaps! hopefully none tomorrow!
