Silver Jet - 1971 Sovereign rip and reno!!

Started the reno, dragged it up to friend place with no plates no right signal on back but got here.

In 4 days of work I have stripped it almost completely, will be posting some pics just need go through all the ones I have taken.

It is aluminum channel interior, rear bathroom, mid twin version.

It is going to get everything new, wire, pipes, floor, insulation, lights an updated layout a bit more open.

Will be back with pictures.

Rocky Racoon called it home for a while.

Well, i have gotten it down to the frame now quick pick on outside.

Frame pretty good overall, two front outriggers only needed.

Found a hit down the side bent a bit more around door, some extra work.

Having fun. 8 total days of work and have it down to ribs.

Wiring good still surprisingly some tweaks to do with new layout. May replace a full panel along side where original hit was.
