Thx fellow skoolies.
Then I started dealing with the rust at the wall meets the floor. First spray down with por 15's metal ready. The more rust left on the surface, the more chemical you will need to convert it.
This is the first spray down. In total, it took around 6 soakings.
What the metal ready did to the grass.
Next morning the spiders were back.
The second overnight coat and soak with metal ready. You can see the white zinc coating starting to form.
I should have wire wheeled this first to speed the process up.
This pic shows how the entire weight of the walls, and roof ride on the few rivets that attach it to the chair rail. Some ribs have as few as 4 rivets into the chair rail. The fact that they don't connect directly to the floor, and ride on the 1/4 rivets, is why I know welding the rib extentions is not necessary. I'm building and engineering this the same way blue bird did. Rivets and bolts only, no welding. Welding this would have to many disadvantages.
More rust converting over the rear wheel, passenger side.
I still need to cut the skirt post's off.
Remember how bad this looked? This will still need a few more overnight soakings with metal ready.
Then I smashed down a few trees with the bobcat so I had room to work on the drivers side.
