Nope. I think my daughters would miss them too much.

Look again. I don't even HAVE a rear bumper.

I do have a couple jack stands under the rear framerails to support the rear of the trailer. It is fine.

Here's what I got done last night, snapped the new hubcaps on to see how they looked:

Last night I worked a little bit on the outside light by the door.



I pulled the burnt lightbulb out, cleaned the contacts, put in an 1157 and voila!



There was a small hole in the skin to the right of the light. Someone had punctured through the interior with a screwdriver. I drilled out the rivets and pulled the light housing off and was able to get to the back of the dent/hole with a dolly and work the dent a little with a body hammer. I'll put a dab of silicone on there to keep the water out for now.



Now I need to re-seal behind the housing and re-rivet it back on.

Started work on the floor this last weekend.

It was only 105* out.

Cut the old floor out:





One of the outriggers wasn't looking to hot:



Cut out the bad:



Found a nice piece of scrap the right guage and fitted it:




Fired up the Miller and welded it in:



here it is welded and painted with Zero-Rust:



New wood installed:



Inside view:



i still have a few more anchors/screws to put in.

next I need to replace a small portion of the floor aft of the door.

yeah, you made a lot of progress, think about how close you are to getting it usable.
My 66 sat in a field for 19 yrs or so before I got into it. I am enjoying it as we speak.
