WOW!

Ches, you are SO efficient! Hmmm, :chin I should ship you up to Red Deer for a week to help with mine. Then I could actually get some camping in this year!

Your improved frame looks great!

Holy smokes!
Ches rips out the old frame and slams in a new one faster than a speeding bullet.
I would still be thinking about doing it!

Nice job Ches.

Hi Lainey
Don't be afraid to do something.,These are very easy to work on.Just look stop and think and you will be ok.Only rules I follow is not to put any holes in unit if I don't have to and if not sure ask lots of questions.If you go through all the old posts you will see some amazing mods that folks have done.
:wave

This job was so easy it even surprized me.
PS-------I did it all myself with a small hydrolic jack.

Hi, Chester
You should be in Guinness Records. It's quite incredible you did so much in so short time. Congratulations

Trillium Frame

Maggie O.

On our Trillium we found one of the four "U" bolts that hold the body of the trailer to the frame was missing. The other three were very rusted, and were also replaced. The frame itself was okay.

A project begins

Nice work Chest--I just noticed you live in Hosmer BC--did you get
the Chief and His Daughter from Hosmer Mountain to help.
We used to live in the Crowsnest Pass (Gas Plant) and traveled that area a lot. So pretty and so much history. There is a small road that
follows the Frank Slide, cannot see from highway. We lived in the last house at the base by the lake at bottom of the Slide. Could hear
rocks fall from the mountain and splash into the water. Rather un nerving until you got used to it. Lots of neat fossils in that rock pile
close to the base and away from the highway.
Wonderful place to ride horses, many old mines in area, and scenery
is great. Fernie has changed so much now with the ski hill etc.
Have fun with your new project.
Willma

Wow, Ches

Faster than lightening, I'd say.

I'd still be :conf trying to figure out how I was going to get it off the frame so I could put the new one on!

Now you're getting into the fun stuff!

Great job!
