67 Ambassador Build Thread w/ pictures

Since you can't edit or delete the post here is the thread with pictures

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.

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

New gray water tank installed. I will not be adding a black water tank. I have had good success with composting toilets.
