1967 Travelall More like it !!!

Recommended Posts

Looks Good.Nice job of mounting the lights. IIRC you are planning to pull an Airstream with it. Are you going to put on a receiver hitch on it and will it cause a problem with the bumper? Can't wait to see it done.

Dennis the tow hitches that I have looked at all have the receiver below the bumper , Then where

they attached to the frame everyone has been different :)  I plan on a crossmember or two

that attach to the frame and some drop brackets to give me the right height ,

I had a bit of time to work on the doors , got them primed with epoxy primer , then some primer surfacer ,

then wet sanded em'    figured out how to hang them all up for painting , I sprayed the hinges with some etching primer

and will try to spray everything with base coat clear coat all at once ,

Will have to place an order for new door weatherstrip rubber ,windlace, fuzzy stuff ,and the killer is the vent window rubber

which is like $300 for the pair ,  at least all soft parts are easily available :D

I dont remember if I mentioned finding some NOS vent rubber flaps ,  would like to get them reproduced any ideas where ??

I did find some replacements for the barn door hinge grommets ( ford van)  that with some careful trimming

should work ok,  If anyone has seen something more like the original on left let me know please :)

On the rubber flaps do they hinge on the centers where the rib is? I wonder if it would be cheaper to fab an Aluminum plate then bond a piece of rubber to the face for sealing? Try AP air or ACC climate control.

Yes ,  The hinge is just a piece of rod ( pin) about an inch long that sticks in a hole

Hinge pins in package

Bob , Not too hard to make them , I fabbed one out of a fiberglass street sign and my wifes silicone rubber

baking sheet (shhh ! !)    But it does not have the same feel as the original flaps do when closing .

the new ones have a softer rubber edge ( for sealing  ? ) and give a satisfying sound when closed.

Here is whats left of an original rock hard one ,  speaking of original -- I believe the early 60's pickalls

had a metal flap with rubber trim stapled to them ?

Is the flap the same type of rubber used on the steering wheels of older tractors like Ms?

Cast a new one with something like this?

Sorry I missed your question Bob ,   The flaps seem to be made of 2 different stiffnesses?  of rubber .

The inner part quite rigid and the outer flap is quite soft and pliable ( I imagine for sealing )

Managed to get some paint on the doors Napa 5.0 Crossfire basecoat/clear  paint.

Doors are just a pain in the butt to prep ,sand , and paint :)

Here is a pic of before dry and wet sanding and buffing

Here is one after ,,,  I really like how the metallic paint changes shades with the light of day or night

My new friend is 1500 grit dry paper for my DA sander , cuts down on the painstaking wet sanding

time by at least half:)

   Your doing a yeoman's job on that I.H. ,  Lot of pain and waiting and finding . As for wet sanding , anything that can help that process is a God send.

      Looking good , can't wait to see it done ! I think you started about the time I started my P.U. and mine is being done by professional shop and it still needs few items before I get it home.  Hopeful 10/30/17 it will finally be registered by DMV . It has been a process being it was brought in from out of state and restored . Finally had them do a vehicle verification on it ,lets see what happens on the 30ieth.

   BTW, everything for I.H. is more expensive because very few around and lack of after market.  The I.H. shops know what they have .

     Luckily, I found a Donor and it was a salvation. 

   Now anxious to get it home and drive it .

  Best of luck to you , Love seeing your work and talent.  I don't have talent & patients for Automobiles  as I do for tractors.

I managed to locate a fella that had some original battery hold downs , I had him ship

me one and sure enough -- it was the wrong size , about an inch and a half to short .

After a quick look at my LST and the parts book I realized my truck came with the

code "08578 increased capacity battery"  so decided to build a reasonable facsimile

Sorry for the poor picture , can hardly see it , But this is what I started with for a headliner

It was very dingy ,couple of cracked panels and what bothered me the most was each

panel would sag in the middle and look like crap ,

20171205_131714.thumb.jpg.c2609d86cdcacafaf76cbd4c467d3e61.jpg

 

I started pulling the roof down which had about a 1" thick sheet of fiberglass glued to the metal ( I'm itchy just lookin at it )

So I scraped it, vacuumed it, sanded the metal and sprayed some etching primer on it .  At the same time I sprayed 4 cans

of Eastwoods internal coating in the area between tops of windows and roof line ( known rust area)

20171217_134530.thumb.jpg.e8d52bf8ddfcc0bbd1b5302897be9595.jpg

 

Now what ??   I decided on 2 products ,,  first "Noico" 80 mil self adhesive metal/butyl   sound deadener panels , then cover that with "Noico" 150 mil waterproof "Heat and Cool" liner

which is a  self adhesive closed cell foam,  Both products went on easily ,  Now a sharp rap on the roof produces a VERY satisfying Doomp noise , rather than an echoing oil drum

 

Here is the sound panels installed and the seams taped per online tips

5ac008f98fb71_tallheadliner(10).thumb.jpg.f54d57b90d19c01b03dad06ab0c19cc5.jpg

 

Here is the insulation partially and completely installed

Sound panels and insulation installed in about 2 hours ( by myself) If I had an extra pair of

hands it would of been a breeze

Looking good, I need to do that to the roof of my 1200A. Inside oil drum describes it nicely.

The headliner panels needed some damage repair , the rear panel had a chunk missing , I found

a piece of stiff carpet tile and epoxied it in place

These are the studs that got JB welded to the roof for the new support ribs

20171205_125450.thumb.jpg.8cc80caa5d6bbff74fb31ff856fe2c2c.jpg

 

These are the new support ribs  ,(door transition thresholds) I don't know what I was thinking buying the gold color DOH !!

So I ended up covering them with "chrome tape " (vinyl)  They came out surprisingly nice , I had to sand them all smooth

because the tape showed every little traction marking

5ac2cb56a34dd_travelallheadliner020.thumb.jpg.517da27843e021e280a6df3abb6bf460.jpg

 

Here is the finished product , it really brightened up the interior :)

The panels all got 2 coats of "Almond Gloss" paint .

I have been working on the doors , I rounded up all new weatherstrip, glass run channels , window whiskers , and vent window seals ,

The vent window seals are PERFECT !!!   I could not ask for a better reproduction .  I will get some better pix when I do the next one

20180812_145730.thumb.jpg.e47213c1e43d0941b8d76a58e4a0207c.jpg

 

 

However the window guides and rubbers are a mixed bag of very good , and leaves a bit to be desired , I am working with the manufacturer

who is very responsive and willing to help , I will keep you updated

Been rebuilding window tracks ,installing vent window seals , and trying to get the T-all back in one piece

Does anybody know the purpose of the little copper strips that seem to make electrical contact between hood and fenders ?
