Teardrop Trailer
« on: August 12, 2013 3:48 PM »
Picked up what I believe is a Cub/Modernistic, finding a lot of conflicting information regarding the identification. Long story short, a tree had fallen on this one so I am blowing it all apart to put back together.

Looking for some 46-48 Lincoln caps, though I might be able to make some early Ford caps fit.

I have two lug nuts that are being difficult, but once those are loose I'll be able to pull the fenders and then the sides will be free completely. The 'drivers side' panel is complete enough to pull a pattern from.

No more of that tent shit for you. Is Watertown the goal?

I take it that's your garage by your house?

Yeah, I'm pushing for Watertown...

And yes, it's the garage at our place. Detached oversize two-stall. Finally got some additional lighting put up but the electrical needs some attention.

Well it's down to the frame as of now. There was a huge nest under the ice chest in the galley, hope the neighbor didn't mind I disposed of it in their weed patch of a garden. I also found the marking 'BR-24' under one of the wheel wells, I couldn't make out the marking under the other, no idea what it is for though.
