I've been asked by a few of the members here to start posting pictures.
Here is the first of many of our '72 Boler
American, rescued from 15 years of supervised neglect in the woods of MA.
You may have already seen this in the Referrals: For sale ads
in the forums.
The body was covered in dirt and moss while the roof grew Lichens and was embedded with branches from a fallen tree.
After a few minutes using the snow brush from the trunk, things are looking better
A quick once over with the power washer shows marked improvements.
Note the lower door hinge was broken as well.
Add some soap, water, elbow grease and a 2nd power wash. You get a whole new look!
Duct taping the roof hole, with the door held up using a bucket.
Then we hit a snag, the wiring was fried.
Fought with that for a few hours, before heading off to Walmart to buy a wiring kit. By then it's dark and I'm wiring by flashlight.
With the wiring patched and the door tied shut we are off to find a place to stay for the night.
One look at the mold, and you will know why we didn't sleep in it the first night.
The interior got a good 1st run at cleaning, but was nowhere near close to being suitable for sleeping.
We also forgot to pack the sleeping bags
After 2 days on the road (1934.9 Km and 4.5 tanks of gas total return) including a freak hail storm while on I-90 somewhere near Syracuse.
Add in one day of cleaning and fixing to pass any border inspections and we finally have our first egg at home.
