1970 O'lander Body Repair Questions...
I am gutting my 1970 Overlander, and as I gut the trailer you get subtle indicators of its previous life. I have two spots I would like to get opinions on.
1. Something evidently fell on the roof hard enough that it dented the skin and the rib. You would only notice it if had a birds eye view of the trailer. I wanted to get folks opinion on the need to repair the rib or let it be…
2. The passenger front was evidently smacked up at some point. From the inside you can see the skin is dented in, however from the outside you can’t. After going in and out of the trailer a few times and questioning what I was seeing, I realized they PO skinned over the dented panel with a new one. The repair looks it was professionally done. Should I remove the dented skin and fix the rib or let it be?
3. I am not sure why yet, but the lower panel on the drivers side was trimmed up far enough to expose the riggers and then patched over. The job was done very well. I didn’t realize it until I was removing the rivets in preparation for the body lift. Thoughts on this?
4. Also the dent on the exterior rear…how much of that do you think I’ll be able to massage out?
