Let the fun begin! 74 boler rebuild

So it's now my turn to start a build thread 😄

So I'm not 100% if I'll be restoring/updating or if I'll be doing a custom build. Mostly I think I'll be doing half and half to my liking. I bought this boler in summer of 2014, ever since I was young I've always wanted one of these. Finally got one 👍👍

I've used it for me and my family for the summer and now just getting time to start the demolition! I've so far only got the sub floor for the table ripped out, tonight my saw blade snapped And I don't have no more till tomorrow. But the saga will continue!! Here a few pics of my start Click image for larger version

So the frame seems to be good so far but I have a good feeling it's going to be bent so my very first plans are frame, floors, then insulation, that should tie me over some time to figure out more of my plans

Looks like a job but it is a great one to get. Very cute window in the door. Wonder if that is original.

So I have all benches out it I'm having problems getting the fridge/sink/stove and the closet out, is there anything special I should be looking for? All rivets are out

Never mind I got it just took some persuasive actions lol!!
I was just worried to bust up any of the shell. So tomorrow after work I plan to have the sink/stove removed and the upper cupboards then it's back to frame and floor!

Fun times I remember it well.

Just remember the structure to support the shell, currently there is nothing to prevent the shell from sagging.
Keep us updated on your progress

I might be interested in the front bench/bunk. I'm in Alberta. What shape is it in? And maybe some of the other stuff. Do you have pics of the things you pulled out?

Let the fun begin! 74 boler rebuild

But now comes to the frame..... Makes me scared to see that all summer I been pulling this around with its conditions the way it is is...

And I'm a mini goal kinda guy I set mini daily goals or weekend goals ect but this weekend I think I have failed my goal, I wanted it off my frame and frame in the garage, well it is off the frame lol!! But not 100% to where I wanted it up be today, found out I need 1-2 more ppl to take this off, but I am still happy with my progress considering my minimal time Click image for larger version

Sorry been so absolutely crazy with work. But had a chance to get some more work this weekend on the frame. It's going pretty well. Besides welding I'm about 60% done measurements and cutting, just working on getting the bumper the 2 inner cross beams, ( the thin gauge 6 inch long sections) and the nose, then I have a good platform to work off of

Glad to see this Boler isn't out on the highway any longer with those kind of frame issues. Even better to see there are people like you putting things back together again. Please keep the photos coming on your project and let us know how the pieces fit back together.

I hope you are doing well

I'm getting close to lifting the fiberglass body off the frame of a 1974 Perris Pacer. What was your technique for doing the lift? I need to grind off all the old bolts. It looks straight forward but any advice is appreciated. I fear tweaking it when lifting and stress cracking the fiberglass.

Once it's off, is powder coating the preferred finish on the frame?

Thanks
Fred

Fred, there has been a number of members that have used POR-15 with good results plus it's a DIY system.
