Fixing up the '75 Trillium 1300

Update:
She's done! For now :P
Tires were pulled and bearings re packed. New tires put on the old rims and some new hubcaps ( I know they're not baby moons.)
Rock guard was fixed, new filon (sp?) put in and remounted - new front decal to come.
Curtains mounted inside on all windows.
New cabinet doors all around and new cabinet hardware mounted.
Table leg fixed so that the table is level.
Drivers side upper vent replaced and painted.
Water tank cleaned and re mounted with all new hose clamps.
Awning made and tested

Looks great. What a lot of work. Where did you get the door latches? Can you post a picture of the rock guard and where you got the material. We are needing to fix ours. thanks

We lucked out with a lot of our materials. A friend had the latches, she had picked them up at a garage sale for 5 cents a piece and didn't need them. The rock guard we got from a wonderful man named David it's just white filon. Sorry I can't help you source the materials!

My awning is made from two heavy duty white tarps. You really only need one tarp. I cut one up to do the scalloped edge on mine. I cut one edge off and folded it over a rope to slide into the awning track. Used tarp tape to tape the edge down and used awning polls found at army and navy (Canadian tire carries them too) and some guy wire. Voila 50.00 dollar awning even if it only lasts one season it's worth it lol.

My god the Nostalgia! That fabric reminds me of the show ReBoot. Love it! So cute.

Edit: A bit delayed I see... I'm still trying to get used to this forum thang.
