1968 Caravel, Up Next

The next project up is a 1968 Caravel built at the Jackson Center, Ohio, factory. 

Her  owner has had her and used her for a number of years. She has begun to show some signs of her age.

She looks real good on the exterior. 

Most of her seams have been sealed over and over. Silicon was very popular in these sealing jobs. Most of the applications were wide reaching and will require a great deal of clean up to be sealed properly with the correct material.

There are a few trouble spots.

Most of these trouble spots have leaked very badly over the years causing a great deal of rot.

The rot has allowed some things to move that should not have.

This is the only real exterior flaw. I don't think the segment is going to be replaced for this one.
