  3. well more in the front in the sleaper above below the door, behind the drivers side and both back corners. its a '77/78 Royal Holiday?
  4. So I of cores have some rot and I'm wanting to go in and gut the inside of my toyhome, only thing is I dunno whats under the surface boards. More over which ones are holding the thing up and together...Is it ok to do this from the inside and strip it down to the bones or am I gonna be shooting myself in the foot? I pland on just taking everything out and filling the leaks and replacing everything?
  5. Thanks to everyone so far answering questions and helping out! Here's a recap and the low down. Found my kinda unknown motore home on Craig's list in Austin Texas. This is what I know it''s around a 1977/78 Toyota Hilux, 20r w 87k. The faded logo and modle tag says its manufactured by Royal Holiday, So. El Monte CA, Nov '77. Only 500$, doesn't run, no title. Any one out there know about the manufacturer? So I'm in Texas, in order to get a title I need a lien. After 30yr it's an automatic valu setting around 4k, and bonded at 1.5 mark up making it 6k at 10% bond 600$ for 3yrs then it's mine an
  6. Ya I think it's my best bet but yesterday someone said I had to becarefull and not melt the aluminum?
  7. Wow thanks alot guys, I'm going to see if my buddy has a welder. It's just a tiny bit above the housing, the top of the thermostat cover came off easy as it wasn't threaded. I tried the PB and vise grips way, and then came the drilling and extractor. But I haven't lost hope yet, and hopefully I can get a welder soon. Also it is the bolt closest to the head!
  8. Hey guys I'll try and get photos on here soon. Here's the deal I've been setting up to fix up my 1977 Toyota Royal holiday! Changing out the thermostat for good measure, first bolt a little sticky but out it come second same sticky and then my world "SNAPS"! So I regroup and well start to drill it out and get a bolt/screw remover. Hardened steal you know good stuff and here we go... "SNAP"! Now I have a broken bolt with a hardened steal tip in the center and as I'm um hm stubborn I'm going to attempt to hamer and ice pick it out?!? Any thoughts?!?

    1977-78? Royal Holiday

    My first Toyota of any kind ever! 87k miles, 1977-78? Royal Holiday... It's not starting right now, and the insides kinda a shell and so the project begins. I'll be asking a lot of questions here for sure.
  10. Thanks everyone, so far I haven't gotten together with my friend to tow it so still no real idea. The guy says its been sitting about 6 months so ya think I gotta drain it. Other wise I'll get some pic's and more derect questions on here ASAP! Totally stoked on this project other wise!!!
