All the double pane windows bubble over time – all the smaller windows were taken out and cleaned. The big ones are next!
As it turned out, luck was on our side! Caroline had already been 95% ‘gutted.’ The furniture had already been removed, interior skins dissembled, insulation pulled out (mostly) AND the black tank disposed of (THANK GOD)! They took out all the small windows and cleaned them (but left me the big ones). He also took off some of the exterior and belly pans. Her wires were still intact and dangling – it was like a spider web of wires! AND to our amusement, the rear tail lights and blinkers still worked, 46 years later! Pretty incredible. The previous owner kept the interior skins so we could use them as templets for the new aluminum (again, THANK GOD!!!). He really did an awesome job taking her apart. We were really surprised he decided to sell – he had done all the dirty (and itchy) work! He even replaced the tires and repacked the bearings which made towing her 700+ miles a breeze! Overall, I think we got a great deal on my Sweet Caroline, even with her dings, dents and scuffs.
