Hey Surfpod,
Thanks for the corrosion tip, I will definitely pick some of that up.

My horses are rated for a combined total of 5 tons, and I believe it, have had far heavier things on them. So have no fear

For the outdoor shower I'm going to use the hatch/hole of the battery compartment. Looks like the right size and then I won't have to alter the body.

You may be disappointed to find that the hose for the outdoor shower is somewhat short (depending on what unit you install...I installed the new AS stainless steel unit), especially if mounted as low as the battery box. That is where I was going to mount mine. But at 6'2" tall, I didn't want to have to stoop over to rinse off. So, I moved the location up a bit.

Ugh! My plans foiled again! I'm 6'2 as well. I will look into one with a longer hose or deal with the stooping for how rarely I will probably be using it. Thanks for the heads up though!

Almost got all the belly pans off, what a gross job. They are pretty rough so I'm going to make some new ones using these as a template.

Thanks for the encouragement. I am longing for the day that I get to start putting stuff back together. This part is not fun.

The PO added some junk in the back that is making this 10 times harder than it had to be.

Bought some aluminum today, 4 sheets of 4x12. They didn't have any C channel to match the airstream size of 1 3/4 inch so I bought this square tube and I'll cut it in half to make my own. Wish me luck as I have never worked with metal before :/

Marco.... I think the C channel is thinner than the square you found... making it 'turn the corners' at the rounded ends is challenging... I look forward to how you approach that...

Don't heat this like you might do to steel..

Thanks cwf, it is MUCH thicker, all of my curves are salvageable so I won't be doing any bending. Thanks for the heads up On not heating it, I didn't know you shouldn't do that.

Just got all the plywood for the new floor. I splurged on the marine grade. $100 a sheet. My year (1972) takes 3/4 thick.

I'm going to check the boating forums on how to seal this stuff, unless anyone here has any suggestions?

A few coats of spar urethane will do the trick. It's the same stuff they use to seal the plywood transoms on aluminum boats.

And some folks have used polyurethane and epoxy products to seal up the plywood. Concentrate on the edges as that's an area where water likes to absorb into the wood. There is plenty of information on floor sealers in these forums. Take a look and pick one that suits your fancy.

I tried replacing the shower pan. Please help.

Thanks David and e5earley. I'll dig into the forums for sure! I never want to have to do this again, so I'll take the time and get it right.
