Progress with Mae

Made a little more progress with Mae our 1964 Safari, finished removing the 50 year old sub floor and belly pan. Both were in pretty bad shape. The frame though is in great shape and only needs a few minor welds repaired and  some paint and new subfloor!

Nice to be done with the nasty stuff that seems to collet in the belly pans of these. I don't know why they still put fiberglass insulation in the frame? It just makes good nesting material for lots of critters and if or when you do have a leak it holds moisture??


  1. Damn I need to check in on these blogs more often! I remember those days. If I had to do the frame again I would have it sand blasted.

    1. Javier, Nice to see you back here, the frame was in very good shape, sandblasting would be good but I didn't have the equipment for that so just an angle grinder and wire brush, very dirty job but got it done in a few hours. There were just 8-10 spots to touch up on welds and it is now painted and ready for the floor.
