Hi all, I am a newbee. I found this website while searching for general repairs and rebuilds of mid 80's class C's. I don't have mine yet but will in a couple weeks. My neighbor has an old searay boat with an inboard motor that he wants me to fix. For fixing it he is going to give me his 1983? ( I think) rockwood Ina ford chassis. I will be taking lots of pictures to document the rebuild for my purposes and will share them here if everyone would like to see them. Anyway I plan on picking your collective brain to get me through this. I hope I did this right. If it is in the wrong spot or something please let me know.
Thanks for your time,

Pictures are the lifeblood of a vicarious rebuild for those of us watching the transformation. Ask any and all questions and do remember to utilize the search feature at the top right corner of the page. Tina is busy demolishing her 77 Midas class C, I am redoing the front part of our 1986 Southwind, Rich is completing the install of a new tranny in his Palace. Lots of things going on all at different stages. Waiting anxiously to see you project. Enjoy.

Hi Ken!
I'm pretty new here too, I'm about a week old. LOL The people here are awesome, they make you feel right at home.

Just wanted to say welcome, and looking forward to seeing what your project involves. Lots of pictures is such a big plus, pictures tell it all and keep you from having to type for hours. :)
Hope you have a great day.
