.....kinda tuff 'batchin it' ain't it Rodman???
......also sux havin ta share da sole camera in the family, hope their trip was plesant and uneventful.

As far as the trailer pix go, you'll see (looking through the communitys old photos and re-do's) your trailer basically just seems to need some good cleaning and TLC!

Remember also that we are having on next meet up here this coming May, you are more than welcome to attend (even with the 'ole yeller kar' and color matched garage) with the custom made T-drop!! You can even tow it with any other of your vehicles, (we speak MoPar up here quite well) some of us Eggers have 'Grabbed Life By The Horns"!!!

Man Russ!...The price was right on this one, but it's still a steal.

Let's see...

A pressure washer for the outside, a bleach bath scrub-down for the inside, new cushions, curtains, covers, & carpet...

Add maybe tires, a battery, a bearing repack... clean the mudaubers out of the furnace, put oil soap on the wood, & wax on the 'glass, & this Boler will be ready to take campin'.

If there's a pool...I'd bet it'd be less than $300 in materals, & a bit of elbow grease to put this egg back in "cherry" shape. (We'll pray you find no rot)

Great Find...those are wonderful "before" picts., I'll be looking for the "during" & "after" photos as well.

Congratulations!
ConwayBob
PS two words "Simple Green"...cleans anything great!

.........considering where Russ and SHE who MUST be OBEYED work, the wheels, tires, battery, bearings, and sundry related parts SHOULD be a snap! Russ has told me he plans to strip out the inside lining and replace it because it seems 'too far gone' to just wash up.

Anyone have any suggestions what he can use to reline the innerds with and where to get some??

If I know Russ, this redo WILL be one to keep an (internet) eye on. How does powder coated wheels grab ya'll for starters?

Hey Russ. If you contact Mr. Paul Neumeister at e-mail a-1auto@quadro.net. He has some of the carpet that is used in Yaughts. He has just finished a total redo of a Boler 1650. He has one of only 50 made. He can give you all kinds of info. Yours in Bolering. Jim

.......yes that is Russ' hot rod, or ONE of them, LOL!!! He's workin on 2 others at the same time.

This pic was taken having a 'sanny break' while awaiting a ferry ride on the cars FIRST trial run!! .....and they do it towing a trailer no less!!!

That takes a lotta ba_ _s, I'd say.

The trailer (home made) features a lot of custom wood work and the Model T Hot-Rod ALSO features a custom wood windshield frame and a wood radiator shell. (Termite City, LOL)
