This afternoon I finished bolting the floor to the frame. I was going to get 50 elevator bolts for this and my friend Steve said that I should get 100. It turned out that even with 100 on hand I was 4 short and I have not even bolted the shell back on yet. Live and learn I guess so it will be back to Fastnal for me tomorrow.


  1. I know the feeling - my Overlander's black tank metal box required 107 rivets, and I started out with one box of 100.


  2. I'm curious to know what size tires you are using for your Overlander. I own a '58 Overlander, too, and have found that the 205/75R15s seem kind of small.
