New Member from Atlanta

Post by abrams1997 » Fri Dec 29, 2017 11:55 am

Hello all!

I am new to this board, but have had my 1977 31' LaGrande for about 10 months. What I thought was a steel of a trailer for $1000 bucks turned out to be a full gut and rebuild. Then add in a back surgery in June, I am just a little behind. I have my LaGrande stripped to the frame and insullation. I am waiting for warmer weather to put rust converter primer on the frame and then I will prime and paint the entire frame and interior belly pan. Then I start the rewire of the chassey...then new floor...then new wire for everything else.

Exciting but hard work.

Cheers,
Jeff

Hello Jeff,

Welcome to the forum.

We planning on moving from Michigan to Cumming, Ga. early next year with our '88 30P in tow.

Let's keep in touch.

Hi Jeff,
Welcome. Sounds like you have a great project. Spent two years on my Avion and have no regrets. You will have a great one when you finish. Please post some pics if you can. I live near Augusta, Ga.

I will get some progress photos posted one day. I am hoping to final convert, prime, and paint the frame those weekend...finally some good weather.
