Trillium 4500 (quebec)

Hi FGRV'ers,
I am new to this group and I am expecting to learn so much from you all. I just purchased 1981 trillium 4500 which did not look in bad shape but by taking it apart I got myself a 8 month contract. Yeah i am going to renew this baby just like many I see on this forum. I will strip it down and bring it back to life.

Looks like a major redesign, especially in the front. As a fellow 4500 owner I will be watching with interest! Good luck!

Working on belly belt, took off aluminum bend by drilling out rivets and taking care not to go through inside fibre tape. Once off started to grind warped fiberglass belly belt due to rusted metal back plates which once held the rivets. Then removed all rusted metal and filled in with fibre bondi , then sanded rough to place fibreglass band for closure. Here are a couple of pics.

T4500

Love the work you did on the belly band. I did a temp job with aluminum tape which has worked for 4 years and avoided painting the F/G. I hate painting the Gelcoat if I can avoid it. I do love your colour scheme - very nice. Can I borrow your sister when your trailer is finished? She can help me finish mine. :-)

I will probably place a vinyl tape around the belly band and then install the aluminum railing around because my flexible led lights will be installed in the flexible rubber band which slides in the railing. I have purchased white rubber instead of the original black colour.

Looks great Ross. Where did you source the plastic window trim?

That's awesome. I couldn't find a local shop that would bring it in. I had to order a length from the States.
