First post on here.  Just purchased a Tee Nee trailer and after driving 5 hours to ppick it up I will begin the complete restore and then it will tow my 1960 Crestliner.  Any trailer restore tips, suggestions, vendor supplies, anything that will guide me in the right direction for parts and supplies is greatly appreciated.  I will post pics of the project.  Thanks to all.  Mike in Tulsa

Hey, Mike 
I'm sure there's others here who would like to know which model Tee Nee you found.  I think Del sells glass versions of the famous fenders and all the top level guys here like KevFin, Bill, Del and Brad have all done numerous Tee Nee restores.  There's one in my yard waiting for restoration with all original rust and one fender cut in half for no particular reason I can figure out.  So we're with you.  Please post.

Hi Bob,
Thanks for the info about the others who have this trailer.  I found the tires for the trailer this morning and will be driving next week to pick up the trailer and bring it back to Tulsa.  I will let you know what trailer it is and post some pics.  I'll either find some bearings up there or, if not, repack the ones on it and hope for the best.  I am really looking forward to the restore and then once done I'll redo the Crestliner and post those pics as well.  Really appreciate your reply.   Mike

1.25 MB  I tried to post pics and it said I exceed 1.25 MB trying to post just one picture of about 4  or 5 pictures.  I Need directions to properly post the pics.  Trailer got home just fine.  New 4.8/12 tires went on 4 bolt wheels after new 1 inch bearings were intalled. Ball is 1 7/8 and magnetic light kit served well.  Thinking about a color now as I want to restore the 1960 Crestliner and have not decided on colors for it.  I'll have a couple pics of the boat later today and maybe will be able to post them

You'll need to learn how to resize and make screen resolution images.   We suggest you make images about 1200 pixels wide maximum and at 72 to 150 dpi.  Kevin has to pay a fee for posting images based on total amount of storage used.

got the fenders.  not bad condition but isn't the 'monorail' version they all like for displaying boats at shows..  you should try to locate the triangular winch stand with the metal wrap to enhance the look of your finished project.  Pictures look great. thanks.  Bob

Bob,  Could you send me am email at homerdog3@yahoo.com so I could then send you back three pics of a winch stand that a fella has offered to sell to me.  I would like your opinion as it does not seem to look like the pics I have seen so far on all the image sites  Thank you, sir.  Mike

The stand looks accurate but be aware that they varied that metal wrap to adapt to different height stands for different model trailers. I don't have the accurate Tee Nee catalog info you require to know which stand goes with the model you have.  That would only be a big deal if you plan to compete in ACBS judging at shows or if you were re-selling to someone who planned to do that.  What IS important is how the height of the stand relates to the prow of your boat.  email KevFin for the catalog info and hope that he finds time to look into it.  The email addresses are available by clicking on a usename link to the left of a posting by them. I came by a Tee Nee stand that was quite tall and worked on a Monkey ward Tee Nee knock-off.  I installed it and call the trailer a "Tee Not" trailer.

Thanks Bob,
Great info for me to know and learn about.  I will keep you posyed as this moves forward.  I'll ask for the measurements and then measure my boat.  I have learned that these trailers were ordered sort of al a carte with several options for each area of the trailer.  Any advice as to where to look for the teardrop tail lights?

Thanks and Happy Thanksgiving
Mike

Of the serious collectors, Bill Anderson is the best at communicating online.  Remember, these guys COLLECT.  So, they're not always happy about divulging sources.   Del Van Emmerik makes the repro fenders but I couldn't locate his forum username.  Try contacting Bill from his posts here  username:  Bilnan1 or go to his mind-blowing website  billscars.com and use the contact info

Here's a shot of Del's tiny Tee Nee.

Good info, Bob.  No, I am certainly not a collector, just kinda old-school.  I have had the 1960 Crestliner what seems like forever and am presently restoring a 1965 FordFalcon Futura.  I accidently came across TeeNee a few years ago, forgot about it, then found it again and thought it would look great with the boat and the Falcon.  Just want to try and do a nice job and have it look good, original, and old-school.  Same with the car.  So, I appreciate all this good info, I'll try not to step on any toes, and I hope to get a good result just for some fun.
