Looks like a good unit to start on, hope you enjoy your restoration, then get to enjoy the fruits of your labor.

The inside is incredibly nice for the age... looks like a time capsule.

Looks like a cool project, have fun!

Cleaned up nice bap, do you have a plan for those dents in the front? tearing the inside apart to get to the front panel, it could be tough. The inside looks like you won't want to tear it up. Hope the weather holds out for you to get the sanding done.

yea i know i hate the dents,,,not sure how im going to get at those just yet,,i dont want to mess up the inside,,,,only thing i know to do is bondo them ...sad but thats the only way i see fixing them without ripping out the original interior,,,,
,,,,if anyone has any ideas please let me know...

as for the sanding...i just redone a 40x50 shed that i put half walls back up, about chair rail high,,,,,great place for storing and working on our tt,s..
i left a big covered room for wood working behind storage side...
so im really ready to move it over there with the others...
thanks again ...
