I purchased a 1980 Palomino Shetland S3 over the weekend. I knew there would be a fair amount of work involved in this project, but there is definitely more than I expected. I'm not sure if this is good or bad, either way I'm moving forward... Setup the camper in my shop last night and removed all of the "cabinetry" and fixtures including sink, pump faucet, furnace, converter, water tank, propane lines, wiring, ice box, fire extinguisher holder, etc. I kept all of the cabinet boxes intact so as to be used as 3D templates for new cabinets. I threw out the ice box, bunk mattresses, and old vinyl. Unfortunately, in my haste to get going on this project, I skipped any pictures on Day 1. I hate reading threads like this without pictures, so it won't happen again. Here are my plans for the near future: 1. Complete work I mentioned above. 2. Remove canvas and bunkends. 3. Remove roof and external spring lift arms. 4. Remove box from frame. 5. Weld in supports and reconfigure frame crossmembers to accommodate new larger truck leaf springs. Also, extend frame and add a bumper with receiver hitch and spare tire mount. 6. Install new leaf springs, axle, wheels, and 35" tires. 7. Replace floor with marine plywood and new linoleum. 8. Reattach box and repair ends and corners as necessary. 9. Replace lift arms. 10. Repair roof sides and ends as neceesary, mount on new lift arms. 11. Install new cabinetry, rewire, replumb. 12. Reinstall canvas and bedding materials. Sounds easy enough, right!!!
