Hope that Diane and the kids have had a hand in the ressurection.
My daughter informed us that she is getting married, at the house in July, so my first deadline is July to get shell back on so the scattering of trailer parts can get picked up.

This was going to be a slow, "when I have the time" type of project. Now I need to move as quickly as is possible.

Love them kids!!!!

Subfloor Quandry

OK, my issue is with trying to find 5/8" or 19/32" Marine Grade Plywood, it is just not available in San Antonio. Next course of action was to try the gulf coast, called lumber companies in Corpus Christi, sure it is available in 3/4" and 1/2", nobody has the 5/8".

Possible solution is Roddis Lumber here in San Antonio, they can get 5/8" Fir (outdoor grade) AC plywood. If I coat this plywood with roll on pickup bed liner, will this work?????

Frame is now up in the air

Prep going well for the POR-15 stage, built a "contraption", as my wife calls it, to spin the frame. I can get everywhere on the frame now.

Then a ghost shows up

Sprayed the first coat on, then found that I could not see as well as I needed because of the POR on my safety glasses. The second coat and the final top coat went on with a paint brush. The spray gun weighs near a ton at the end of the first coat. The brush allowed me more control and saved my arms. Final product looks pretty good.

Really looking forward to the Rally, we pulled out the box today for prepping.

Also, I cut all the wood for the floor as well, next is ordering the black and grey water tanks.

Winter in South Texas: shirt with collar and long sleeves. You Yanks reading this ought to understand that one may wish to wear an adults shirt, but the climate can leave one prostrate without careful choice. I won't miss it when I'm gone.

Wedding, schmedding, it's too hot to work on a TT in July. Them kids need to understand priorities. On the other hand, have a couple of heavy lifting chores for the youngish beered-up single male guests. Impressing single females never goes out of fashion.

Great size and great year of production to have chosen. One of my favorites.

5/8" Wood SubFloor

We went with 5/8" outdoor grade Fir plywood, with all the rain we have been having, had to resort to a peek-a-boo approach to adding elevator bolts and aluminum channels

Bottom side of floor

Used West Systems epoxy to cover the bottom side of the plywood, the bottom looks way better than the top for now

Kids step in, Take the Belly Pan by the horns

My oldest daughter, not the one getting married, all of a sudden got real interested in this trailer thing I'm working on........I tell her that I am worried about the belly pan installation, reading the "forum" I see that some people have had to attempt this several times to get it right, I canít afford to do this more than once, and have the shell back on in time for the wedding.

The kid is incredible, she starts doing research to find someone who can either help of "do the pan" all together.

After three responses of "too busy right now" she finds Bob Nebergall right here in San Antonio. Bob has like 20 years with one major aircraft company as well as a zillion years experience with local "Dee Howard", I think.

Bob (the belly pan man) to the rescue, in 6 hours Bob has installed the belly pan.

The experience of watching an expert work, in it self, is really eye opening. The techniques and his process are a real education, after helping him work I think the next one will be "no problem"

Bob Nebergall (210) 383-4130

Working to finish belly pan

A neighbor of mine, does paintless dent repair, he gave me a few hints on how to take the dents out of the banana wraps.

This involves, several bags of lentils in a small pillow case, a rubber sanding block and a rubber hammer.
