Complete rebuild of a 1965 Serro Scotty Sportsman

Came across this photo chronicle of a ground-up rebuild of a classic 1965 trailer. It's worth a look.

That is one of the most incredible things I've ever seen. That guy and his girlfriend are incredibly talented.
(if he doesn't marry that girl, he's crazy. She's a keeper)

Very nice job. I like the induction cooktop to keep the heat out of the trailer.
I hope they enjoy it for a long time.

Anybody notice how many views he's had in just four days?

Over five million!

Looks like a LOT of folks are impressed with this lad's skills, 'cause the word sure is getting around!.

Now that's how to restore!!

They did an amazing job from start to finish. A ground up restoration what many of us would love to do! Loved looking at the progress.

They sure got tired of it in a hurry!

Maybe it wasn't as nice as the photos indicate.

I know I wouldn't want it.

They'll take a bath on the whole project, I suspect.

Still, it's fun to watch the progress of the rebuild.
