The Shasta’s triumphant return to the great outdoor. She pulled into the garage on July 26 2012 and has now finally returned to her proper place. New rims go on tomorrow and then to paint Thursday…psyched!!
Congrats Smccusk. It's great to see the light at the end of the tunnel isn't it?
Yah, it certainly is. I towed it to my friends body shop today... at just about every stop light someone commented on the trailer or gave me the tubs up. You don't see to many restored Shasta's in these parts and I think that was part of the appeal of doing this project.
Paint will be done Monday and then another week of buttoning up loose ends and I will call her done for this year. I already have work planned for next winter but for now she will be very usable.
Hamlet, I believe the panels and roof are actually powder coated polar white. I decided to use the white for the upper color and the roof however, because the two small panels in the rear are still yellow along with the awning, rail and j-rail I’m going to repaint the sides and back so it all matches. I’m fortunate as far as the painter. He’s a friend of mine who is giving the trailer special consideration…funny when I dropped it off the other day the whole shop stopped to come over and check it out. Can’t wait to see it (understatement).
