new owner of 69 overlander
hi all, my name is Noel and i am the proud new owner of a 69 overlander. It is in pretty bad shape but has lots of potential. i have been going over the different threads trying to come up with a plan and trying to figure out where to begin. I think i am going for the shell off version. Why? belly pan is mostly gone, inner skins are already removed and the back of the frame needs the serious attention. so basically i am starting from scratch. I think i have figured out how to get the shell off. the part that i am getting stuck at is once i get the frame fixed which comes first 1) new belly pan or 2) plumbing( black, grey tanks) oh and gas lines and water lines 3) insulation and then floor???? i think i will need to replace the c- channel that goes around the trailer which i belive the shell attaches too. anyway i know this is a big topic but i thought it best to just jump into the forum just like i did with the trailer and see what happens. meanwhile i will keep checking the forum out. proud owner, noel:)

Hi Noel, welcome to the forum.

Luckily many people have already gone where you're heading, so you will get lots of help. I didn't go shell off, I did a partial floor repair, shell on.

Good luck with your project!

Welcome to the forums. There will be plenty of people willing to give advice as you go through your restoration. How about some before pictures?
