Trillium 4500 (rebuild journal)

Postby Sturmey » Wed May 23, 2018 8:28 am

Hi all,
Just bought a Trillium 4500 at a pretty good price, and now I'm trying to restore it into working condition. It was gutted and partially destroyed by PO and I'm going to try to get it back to close to new condition. I'll be trying to video the process. Part 1 is available here.

Looks like a great project.

Part 2, Where I try to destroy everything, but it seems to work out.

Frame comes off, start cleaning and painting. Test using PUL fabric to create a water tank/bag, I think I've figured out how to reinforce the seam, so that gets tested next, but you can see the first test here.
