Glad to help on the axle thread .

This would probably be a good time to change your "Currently Looking" status .

Enjoy your build and have lots of fun with it.

Hi, I think I might go around the block once I break in my Crown and Pinion. And maybe adjust my points with a two pound hammer.

Wish I could have opened the pictures.

A great project to then use to travel a great country!

Your restoration project will be fun to watch. Thanks for sharing, in advance.

We traveled from Bundaberg to Melbourne along the coast in a rented C class Motorhome this past November and loved your country! So much beauty and so many wonderful people. Your plan to travel the country in your Airstream when completed is brilliant!

Remember to stay on the left side of the road when driving . Hee, hee.

Thank you everyone!! Latest news is that we replaced the flat tyre that my husband could not get off! The tyre place said something about left hand thread....haha. I won't tell you what Dean said about Americans...He also removed the bellypan and the frame underneath looks pretty good. There are a few bits that need replacing but being a welder he's got that covered! She goes in tmrw to get a quote to replace the damaged panels and windows and re-skinning the door.

Hi, I think the left hand threaded lug nuts are a thing of the past and you're not the first to be baffled by them. But if you look very closely you should find a few common marks that indicate "Left hand Threads".

Left hand lug nuts usually have little cut marks on the hex corners and the studs will have an "L" stamped into the end.

Send a message via Skype™ to Melody Ranch
Need another picture

It looks like the floor is a chip board material. This needs more of a close look.

I am so happy to hear that. And to think even some modern Airstreams used this material.

Australia is a beautiful place. Ive been to Freemantle/Perth WA twice by sea. The folks there are the real deal, and the friendliest people you would ever want to meet. No kidding. It would be a dream come true to see Australia in an Airstream.
My last Destroyer, the USS Elliot (DD-967), is now at the bottom of the Coral Sea just off Fraiser Island. Part of me is there too.
Wishing you guys all the best
Clayton

I don't know about $80,000, but I have been inside that trailer called 'Wanda', at HofArc, and no one does a better job with every detail. It is a beautiful work of art.
