Question about Inner Cap Fabrication

Reason I'm asking - I'm reworking a 1970 Tradewind. The front inner cap was plastic - not reusing. I want to form a new cap from aluminum sheet.


Thank you.

Outstanding!

Excellent workmanship! I've had the same idea myself. At some point, it becomes easy to start from scratch than to resurrect an old beaten up one. Keep the pics coming!

Pretty cool you are following through with your idea. I had a similar thought when I restored my Safari. From the marmoleum down, the only original parts were the rear bumper and step. And I thought about it again as I polished the outer skin.

Excellent work and thanks for taking us along. - Mark

Thanks for the update. Remarkable! Everything must be challenging. You’ll have to go on a cross country tour so that we can all see it.

Your work is amazing! I strongly second the idea of a US tour to show us all your trailer! I would drive a ways to see it.

Awesome work! I am very impressed. You've built your trailer from scratch in a fraction of the time I've taken renovating a 1949 Liner, and I'm still not done yet. Congratulations!

I did quick search and found Silver Streak's Facebook page. There were recent posts (last few days) about receiving shipments of aluminum and getting production started.

That's incredible work Sir!
May I ask, what process do you use to curve your Z profile as used in the window frames?
