Driftless,
The finishing process is still a work in progress. Have 3 coats of satin on, but not yet happy with the feel. I like your idea and will try it out.
Thanks (Deb- the one who gets to finish everything Dave builds)

Deb (the one who gets to finish everything Dave builds) great job on the finish!! It is extremely hard to get a perfectly smooth finish unless you can find a dust free space for your work area. I will say that a really good brush helps a lot though.

Now I have to go talk to my DW about her new finishing career.....

Well...Mission will not be a problem.

That's a lot of aluminum to polish.

Hope to see you two soon.

Lee,

I have been polishing before installing new equipment, and that has been work enough. I will do a little at a time not a marathon like we did on the inside.

DDSTECH,
We got the wheels and tires from Les Schwab tire. I had to replace the original split rims and was going to go with steel rims, but the cost of the rims plus shipping and the paint material put them within a few dollors of the trialer wheels at Les Schwab. The wheels are Allied 870 trailer wheels 6-5.5.

Hi Dave,
After taking a few weeks off from working on the Airstream to do some yard work, I am now starting on the tail light housing repair.

We need to order new lenses. Where did you purchase your's?
Maurice

Maurice,
We went through Inland RV for new tail light assemblies and reflectors. The original assemblies were in bad shape and were not worth saving. We could not find any LED tail lights for the 65 although they may be out there.

Wow. That is a stunning trailer. Love the revised floorplan. How big of a bed did you wind up with in the back?

WOW!!!!
I'm so impressed and would love to see it sometime. Now I want to go out and purchase another one to redo...(I wonder if I would have to get a new husband to do the work? Mine has talents in other areas and wood working is not it)
Very very lovely!
Meredith
PS>>..
I'll have a ton of questions for you later. Right now I'm sitting on my couch for another 3 weeks of post-op and so it's going to be awhile before I can get out there and make some improvements on my new baby.

Meredith,
Thanks for the kudos. We have really enjoyed the whole process of rebuilding our TW. We'll be glad to answer any questions that you have, but not til November, as we are off to the Balloon Fiesta in New Mexico!
Good luck resting on that couch!
Debbie

Dave--my compliments from the big easy. I like the thought out modified floor plan--not too over the top. I LOVE the wicker(stapled in the back? Or trim added?)

Funny part for me is the 64 TW i have belonged to a traveling elephant trainer--so those curtains are spot on.

Any updates??
