Been getting a little done in between a busy summer finally! I now have the shell mostly all riveted on, but still need to finish the back and the panel replacement on the curb side aft of the door. It took a while to install my version of a rock guard on the front lower. This will replace the aluminum channel bumper guard or whatever it is. It also will help strengthen a damaged area in the left front from the PO. The entire front section is now much stronger with the continuous channel around the front that attaches the skin to the floor. I also replaced the tie-down plate with a new one. Here's a picture of the current progress. It felt great to be able to pull it out of the car-port for the first time in over a year!

Drain question

I am somewhat new to the forums here, but I have been surfing all the restoration threads for ideas, and have really enjoyed reading about your restoration. One question after looking over the belly pan photos:

How do your waste water tanks drain, and how did the mounting brackets scheme for the tanks work?

OK, more like too questions, but thanks for any help.

Matt

Hi Matt,
We like to travel simple....so, no underfloor tanks. At our beach property, we usually just rent a honeybucket for a few months over the summer. Usually, wherever we camp there's restrooms. We use a couple of large water jugs with a spigot outside and if we need water in the trailer, we have the sink plumbed to drain into a bucket just outside the trailer. We do have a small porta-potty for the kids if they need to "go" in the middle of the night. This really cuts down on all the complications with plumbing and tanks and stuff! So, that's why you don't see any tanks in the pictures :-)

Lee
