A project in waiting!
Took a trip with and airstream buddy Brad and my Dad today.
She is in pretty tough shape but I would be to if I sat in the north woods for decades!
Hopefully I can fix her up!


 Mouse patrol, lots of good smells!
 A few useable cabinets inside otherwise just nasty!
Not much left of the frame

 She maybe did a little traveling!

In 1991 she was bought for $250
 This trailer is amazing with a lift on front and a winch! borrowed from a friend.
The clipper will make a nice lawn ornament for now. And keep Nellie company

Welding, shocks, brakes

Had some great help from my Son in law Isaac today with welding in new shock brackets and welding in the new hitch. He also filled in lots of random holes in the tongue of the trailer, it will look much better now when painted. Thanks Isaac for the great work!

Painted and installed a reading light for Jan
Jake and Henrietta
Jake looks pretty innocent but seems to want to chew up my safety equipment, safety glasses last week and face shield today??

Vanity, Shocks, Brakes and a new project!

Brought Nellie  to the neighbors scale today to check her weight, I think she is sitting ok with her improvements just a few things to add yet.

Found our next project today and have arranged to pick it up next week, we or at least I am very excited to pick her up!

Nellie ready to install new shocks and hook up the electric brakes

Then and now

Looked at old pictures of the cruiser recently, it is good to see some progress.
Soon she will get a full polish job!

The first day we had Nellie, all those black tears running down the side:-(
