64 GT Restoration #13 (DEXTER AXLE is the best)

Posted 01-29-2009 at 09:14 PM by 64TrotterAtl

So, the past few weeks have been interesting. I have basically completed the interior skin re-instal. I was able to luckily purchase some zolatone and primer from a new friend here in Atlanta for a reat price. I have decided to o with the Apollo Grey, exactly what was originally in it. What have I accomplished other than getting the zolatone, well......I welded a new 2 5/16 tongue on the frame, welded a 2 inch hitch receiver for my bike rack on the back bumper, and welded the LP gas tank holder...

After the axle replacement I replaced the running lights on the side and the back with traditional tear drops. i decided that I would rather have LED's for brightness as well as lifespan, so I retrofitted LED's to fit underneath the original tear drops. I did the same with the brake lights. Next, I finished the compartment doors and main door by insulating them with foam board and two layers of reflectix....

Well well well, the axle was finally replaced today. I had been procrastinating for the past few weeks. I have read so many threads about how difficult Dexter axles can be, and to be honest, this was quite possibly the easiest project yet. Easier than polishing....

So, we lifted the whole trailer, set her on railroad ties and 6x6 posts high enough that the wheels were off the round, put both jacks under the old axle and jacked it up. With the jacks holding up the old axle, it removed...

Naked Airstream. That is what I finally ended up with. Well, naked in my eyes. I have not given her a name yet, but it is definitely a her.

So I was unable to change out the axle that I ordered from Dexter. I had forgotten that I needed the new wheel and tire. not to mention that steel rims that hold a baby moon, are not something most stores have. So I figured I would do other things, like finish removing the interior skins, remove fiberglass, cut out od wires, and finally remove...
