Snuck in an hour or two

Got a chance to wire brush and spray paint some framing and applied to new plywood. When I get that all connected to the shell with resin, I'll move onto the next section. Its all getting real. Wooo Hooo!

Before you attach the wood to the frame lay a good bead of adhesive sealant on top the frame rail. This need to be done around the dropped floor area, on top of the frame rail and on top of the drop floor ledge. This keeps road water from entering the floor area. Good luck with your project.

Hi Jay, you're making some good progress considering you're grabbing time where ou can here and there. I read through your older posts. Did you ever get to take measurements from someone in the area? My '77 13' scamp is in Hayward if you'd like to set up time to come by you can PM me. My upcoming projects are to make sure the trailer is weather tight and put a fantastic fan in. Oh and new flooring. I've been collecting items for a vintage cowgirl theme. Its fun. Here's another gypsy trailer to give you some additional inspiration.

Thanks Eddie, Actually I forgot that step, I'm glad you suggested it before I applied the resin.

Cheers

Jay
