I purchased a '55 Flying Cloud a few weeks and it needs a total restoration like the one you just did. Your information will be very helpful because, like you, I would like the original floor plan and the original stove.

Thanks again!
We did do all of the windows. Every one was taken off, glass removed, polished, and then received new gaskets. The old screens were taken out and replaced with new. Stretching the screens took a bit of effort and I noticed I have some Wild strands flying about where the screen was cut for the window regulator. I was thinking earlier there had to be a better way to capture the screen with a gusset of some sort. I will look through our photo documentation and see if we have some shots of how the screens were redone. There was a point when things were just too busy and the camera was forgotten.

Barry, I'm impressed with all of your hard work and results. I'm doing a shell off resto on a '54 flying cloud. I'm doing the belly skins now after replacing the subfloor and painting the frame. If you have any pics of the rear skin where it joins the outer shell in front of the rear bumper, I'd love to see them. I don't have a reference since my skins were gone when I got my trailer. Tim, if you're reading this...same question. Thanks guys, keep up the good effort!

I dont have any pictures that have already been taken. However, I can go to the storage shed if I can get in, and take some pics. Recollection is that it looks very similar to what you are doing. The tabs cuts for the trailer frame rails were cut off and sealed with a highly viscous silicone caulk.
