Thanks to TOP

Lance dropped a note to me to recheck something on the electrical system. I did and it was a serious error on my part...he caught it. See the discussion here about 50 AMP service. Yay! 50 amp Service upgrade - Done I had connected both the neutral and ground to the common buss in the breaker box. That got fixed fast. Thanks everyone.

Part of the belly pan work was the repair of the damage from a blow out on the right tire.

next question on Zolatone stains

The previous owner glued an asswarmer pad on the rear wall by the bed. I am having a problem removing the stain. I want to preserve the Zolatone because overall the original elsewhere is perfect.

Looking great Robin. If I remember correctly R.J. Dial rebuilt several of the panel rays in his vintage thread. Good info on controls and operation.

Looking great indeed! Whenever I find myself wanting to remove a serious stain on paint I reach for one of those magic eraser sponges by Mr Clean. It won't remove adhesive but if it's just staining it might help....

O.K.....ready for a road trip.

Well, that was fun. Got Bub done, and took a trip. It was so nice today I went from Texas, to Oklahoma and over to Arkansas and back home. Bud did well.

Lets see...Texas to Oklahoma to Arkansas & back home, if you start in the right place you could probably do it in about an hour and a half-right?
That combo is just too cool for words Robin, anybody here who isn't jealous died yesterday and hasn't noticed yet
Cleco and I are doing well and the cloud is coming along, albeit slowly since we got 8" of snow saturday. Keep in touch

I cheat

I live 16 miles from Oklahoma and in the area of the Arklatex. Hell, I could have thrown in a BBQ in Louisiana in another couple miles.

Beautiful work! Looking at your underside and the great improvement you made in the bottom of the wood subflooring, the frame and the insulation makes me realize that I really need to do the same thing on my 66 Tradewind.

So I have a few questions. What did you use to cut the aluminum pan with? What do you recommend using for the pan material and where can it be purchased? Where did you get your insulation? What rivets did you use?

Your bubble is really beautiful. I really like the look without an ugly A/C unit on top. Are you going to add A/C? I mount a small 5k unit in my side window when I need it and it works just fine.

Thanks for sharing all the photos and showing us also how it should be done.

Dan

Thanks...

I cut the old belly pan off with both hand shears and an air hand shear. The insulation was from that supplier of exotic materials...Home Depot. I just stacked and glued to get the three inch thickness. I used regular old belly pan rivets that I got from Vintage Trailer Supply...but went to my local FASTENAL store for enough to finish and get 1/8 th in rivets for the interior. I always use my local sheet metal shop or my local trailer....mostly horse trailer...shops for metal. Around here they have a good supply at hand or get deliveries within three days. I even had them run my new extensive 12v wiring so I have nicely installed 12v everywhere and I did not have the haste. An AC install is a definite for me around here. I am still looking close at a "thru the wall", sleeved unit.....Not to be confused with a window wall unit.
