67 Ambassador Build Thread

I have been working on this Airstream for over a year now. I didn't do much over the cold months. I'm going to post the last year of pictures now, and catch up on this build with you guys.

April 2016 - Airstream acquired

This was the state at which I acquired the airstream. The previous own had been working on this project for 4 years and had passed away. It was in a rented garage that was $400 a month so I had to get it out of there as soon as possible. I think I had it rolling in 3 months, where I then moved it to my work.

Clean and paint the frame

The frame was already in great shape, normally I would use por-15, but since there was minimal rust I used something cheaper
