Thanks B,

I have replied to the other post but additional info was needed and appreciated. I am a skilled carpenter and so all the work will be done by me. Also, good advise on the scope reference. Finding myself going off the original issue I mean to address by finding additional damaged/worn parts.

Need advise on what best material to use to seal the exterior panels and loose rivets as though I only have minor leaks, they need to be fixed before additional interior...

All Jacked Up

Posted 09-04-2017 at 07:42 AM by Diamond DW

Put her up on some jack stands to get at those old scary bias ply tires . Turns out the road side stabilizer jack is totally rusted away so I retracted it before it punched a hole in the underside and put a spare jack there instead . Put jack stands and 2x12's under the frame once the wheels were up off the ground. Little scary putting it all up in the air like that because the ground has some slope to it here .

Airstream Party!

Posted 09-04-2017 at 07:08 AM by Diamond DW

At the advice of air forum members we had a party in our airstream where it's parked in the front yard. 5 adults, two young labradors and one senior labrador.. Snacks and card games. The leaf in the fold out table came off at the hinges when we tried to use it but the part where it slided back and forth was useful. The lazy boy twin recliner is totally the wrong bulk for that space, takes up way too much room when it's sitting sideways. Fridge was good for some cold beverages...
