THANKS GANG!

And yes, even though I no longer physically own an Airstream, I'll still be lurking and maybe even posting once in a while. And Balloon Fiesta is still on my schedule every year.

Lew, thanks for all your help, both here and in person, over the years. By all means, don't leave just because you no longer own an Airstream.
If you ever get to Colfax, stop by and I'll give you a tour of the shop. Good luck with the new motorhome.

Thanks Gary,

I have started a new thread titled 'Bambi's Replacement'

It will be a running chronicle of the many, many things that I will be doing to the beast to bring it back to it's former glory and condition.

THANKS!

Thinking about a 50's diner theme. Black, white, red, stainless, aluminum We'll have to talk.....especially if you are at the Balloon Fiesta. It just might come out looking like an Airstream after all!
We WILL be at the 4CU Balloon Fiesta Rally...we look forward to seeing you then!

Safe travels...TB

Good luck with your future. I was looking forward to meeting you at the FUC restro rally, but I'm sure our paths will cross again, in another time or a different place.

Thanks for the MaxxFan advise...

Lew,
We got your PM on the MaxxFan install. Encouraged now, Looks like I'll be replacing our two Fantastic Fans next chance I get. Great tips and your point on "changing light bulbs" is taken.
See ya on the road!

Thanks Bob,

BTW, interior photos of the Bambi's replacement will be up on that thread tomorrow. From what I have done so far, it will be quite a project!

Stay tuned

Hey Lew - I had a dream about you and your new coach last night - I really did - scary = = anyway I dreamed you showed up at my house in a 1961 Chevy School Bus conversion - boy did it need a lot of work! It was kind of an Army green with bondo patches all over...

Ok all your dream analysts - tell me about that one... !

Sorry to disappoint Ken,

But this one is a little nicer than the one in your dream.

Still needs a lot of work and TLC, but it is a good solid base from which to create!

You WILL experience it in person soon !!!!
