M101CDN coming along

I picked up this trailer to build my camping rig. It was disassembled, chopped up for the tail gate, longer A frame arms fabricated and extended tube out the back for a rack. The bed was reinforced with two extra cross members. All those parts were galvanized before etching primer, seam sealer and more etching primer and then some paint. The springs have been blasted, painted and reassembled using poly slider material and new hardware. I rifle drilled and relieved the spring/shackle bolts to provide for lubrication. Wiring is almost complete which will be LED and include backup lighting. It has received a SOA conversion on the custom axle I built using RRC rear spindles and hubs. The landing leg has been replaced with the tongue jack. There's still a long way to go as I've barely started the hard top which will include a modified SII roof and RTT. In stock form the trailer sits 42" to the rail but now sits at 49". It will settle a bit more and should be at 47"- 48" when everything is installed.

Looking great Mark. You even got the garage cleaned out....kinda. I should be down there in a couple of weeks if you need a hand before a run to Marios.

Sounds good, Rick. Yeah, I cleaned out (sorta) the lift bay to get my 240Z out and the daughter's Accord in for much needed exhaust and suspension service. I'm going to get serious over the next few days and purge a load of crap into the scrap metal trailer or trash bins (I never think of you, Robert). It's frustrating having to step over every damn thing trying to work out there.

I made a little headway this over the last few days. Hindered by a car show my Z club put on, and failed starter in my 240Z and fitting a rebuild L28 into my good friend's street/track 280Z. Here are a few pictures of the trailer's drop gate installed and the Series roof cut up and being shrunk for the hardtop.

Am down sizing myself, although I have a longer road to travel before I am free at last.

Yep, die grinder. I used it to cut the heads off the solid rivets and separate the spot welds holding the roof rib to roof panel.

That would be great. I've got a manual rivet tool with about 3" throat depth and a variety of dies. There are only about 150 rivets I need to set.

I have one you can borrow as well as long as you promise not to hit it with a hammer like needle did

The hardtop is still in progress but the trailer has been mostly completed and used this past week for a trip to First Landing State Park in Va Beach. The interior has been glass beaded, acid etched and Line-X coated. Even with the RTT up over 6' the trailer tows like a dream at 70+.

Mark is that heat plumbed into the tent in that last picture ? I have one of those 120v heat pump units 12kbtu, and never thought of using it for camping.

Real differences between your trailer and the M416.
Thanks for the great shots!

Have you seen some of the elaborate shower rigs he has ? Never forget the first "all you need is a tank, a pump, and a heat exchanger on your engine and you let the water recirculate until the whole tank is the temp you want " talk. The man has skills.

Jeff wins anything stuffed animal from the top row. It's A/C and will run on a single Honda EU2000. I wish it had heat as an option and will be looking for such a beast. My only concern in a primitive setting would be if the dual EU2000's would be up to the task. There's also the Pelonis disk heater that I believe would work just fine hanging from the top frame of the tent.
