The images are links from gmail... so when you're logged into gmail, YOU can see the images. We're not logged into your gmail, so we can't.

If you copy them into your google+ photos and link them from there, it'll work.

Shelly,

Great progress!

I'm amazed at the difference in frames. Our Overlanders are only 4 years apart, yet yours has the C channel frame versus the box section on mine. I hope yours held up a LOT better!

BTW, thanks for making me look bad by bringing cookies.

John

Yeah John, where's the cookies ?

I'm afraid Shelly's frame is in much better condition than yours was, but yours is significantly stronger now

Colin sent more pictures last night They certainly are moving fast!

I found it interesting that the axle mounting plates needed to be removed (picture nine). When I was at his shop he explained that water sometimes gets in between the plates and the frame and will grow rust , it can change the dimensions enough that an ordered axle might not fit! He welds the top edge to prevent water from getting in. Hopefully this makes sense!

By the way, I don't just get pictures from Colin. I get detailed invoices about the time/work and materials. That I won't post here but there's no surprises, I always know where I stand.

Wow, he works so fast! We're doing all this stuff ourselves right now (check out my thread in the '65 Overlander subforum) as a shell-on restoration and it takes SO long when you can only work on weekends. We've been grinding and welding our frame for I don't even know how many weeks now. If we were closer to Colin I'd have caved and taken ours there too by now! Thanks for all the pictures, and I can't wait to see more of your trailer's progress!

Hi Shelly,
We met you at the Resto Rally. It's great to see your trailer getting the treatment now, I know you were anxiously waiting for your turn in the shop. Fun to watch it transform through the pictures--keep posting!

Wow - lots of work happening fast!

Got to say, part of me is scared to see all of those modern trailers parked at Colin's awaiting work... I'm sure they're just there for improvements and modifications, not repairs... :P

Thanks for all the good wishes! It really is exciting to see all the improvements being made!

Lynetta, hopefully we'll be camping in a glorified tent late thia summer! It's going to be a while longer before I can travel in style like you!

Colin has sent more pictures! He's sending them faster than I can post them!
