Heres the start of the restoration

I picked up the trailer this week took it straight to the car wash, it was covered in algae and moss.:xx I got out my cutting torches cut off the rubber fenders at the front of the frame...

I cleaned the outside then took a deep breath and said what the hell and went in with the pressure washer, it was like being in a Maytag washer:banana
When I got the rig home i tore out the fridge the heater and stove. I am going to fill in the fridge hole put the new fridge where the heater was install a toilet etc etc.

I am probably going to rip out the liner clean the interior fiberglass and spray it with a Rhino liner in light grey with ceramic insulating beads to replace the neoprene/vinyl liner, first I will do some expirements to determine its R factor and if it can be sprayed.

Tony, I resized your photos (resolution 150 changed to 100 dpi) so they will load faster. But I messed up on the third one, thinking it was the same as what you posted in Rigs thread. I forgot about your caption, which you probably don't want here... I should've saved the codes to your originals before I did the replace...

So, I messed up, and I apologize. If you want to edit and re-post that third pic, without the caption, feel free.

I'll try to be more careful in the future :nono (I got in a hurry).

Thanks... :wave

Well I tell you Tony. that sure looks like a project. I was digging around in my computer yesterday and found this picture of Richard and Meriums (from memory so could be wrong, so probably is) Surfside. looks a little different from yours, but the same too.

Tony, What are you going to put where the refigerator is/was?

I will glass in the old fridge vents rip out the box, probably put a small shower in the head if I am happy with the heating system that I plan on setting up. I plan on keeping this awhile so "I am gonna go to town on it"
