Removing the inner skin...

Armed with a large selection of 3, 3.5, and 4mm drill bits I started drilling out the pop rivets holding the inner skin to the 'C' channel frame.

The first shock is how pristine the inside surface of the Alclad is. After 55 yrs, its like new.

No mistaking the product code !

On a less positive front, much of the insulation has gone to make nests and the wiring is stripped bare wherever it passes through the C channel - scary !  Lots of grommets next time around.

The manufacturer: Reynolds Aluminum (or aluminium as us Brits say) - great typeface !
