I've been lurking from time to time getting the courage to start again....
Its been a while..... So, I've been slowly removing the interior of my globetrotter. I have a couple of questions.
What type of tools should I be gathering to dismantle the interior aluminum?
Should I be picking up a compressor for air tools?
I'm full of electrical, welding, carpentry and plumbing tools. Looking forward to the challenge!
Replumbing + (black and grey tanks)
Replacing heater and hotwater heater (also installing a woodstove)
?Replacing the axel?
Obvious, talking care of issues that arise....
I feel the toughest part to owning an Airstream in repair is all of the people that stop by to ask if I'm willing to sell it. I say no, they usually ask if I'm willing to take an offer? I say I'm not interesting in selling but what are you willing to offer? They say how much do you want, I say $30,000!
Are you kidding me is their usual responce!
The way I look at it the Airstream, is its my portable cottage. My plan is to hope that my wife will be interested in camping. With that said the end product has to be house grade or hotel grade.... Super comfy bed and a nice place to sit down to have a meal.
Once I start, I do plan on posting my progress....
