Glad we could help. My wife is from Fayetteville so I was required (so to speak) to offer help...LOL! Just kidding... I'm always ready to help in any way I can. Ed

We just got the refrigerator going on both gas and electric tonightJust saved big bucks Now for the water system checkout, we know we'll do pex's on incoming water system since we have some water hose plumbing going on.

Not going to happen for the 4th of July. As we all know, life gets in the way of airstream renovation. Finally got a shop to put the trailer in so we have started polishing and sealing. The floor is repaired. I've started the interior, new cushions, window coverings, and picking out a floor. I'm thinking of vinyl tile cut to 9"x9" in a couple of colors to match in with the awning and interior colors. Browns, lime, and a touch of yellow, Sounds like 1968.

Update

Update, We got Nelli Sunshine finished in August and traveled over 2000 miles around Oregon and Northern CA in Aug and Sept. Had lots of fun. Took her back to show the original owner on his 90th B-Day. He and his daughter loved showing her off at the lyh. This has been the highlight of what vintage Airstreaming is all about for us. The love continues for this Ambassador. The trailer is back in her shop for the winter getting some interior adjustments and repairing the black water pan (lucky we didn't leave it on the freeway in eastern Oregon.

Here are some pictures from Aug. & Sept.

Beautiful, Teresa, just beautiful!!

I've just made contact with Island Girl's 92 year old original owner. Sure hope we can take her for a visit with her like you did. Still lots of work before we can, though.

Glad you got Nelli Sunshine out and camping so much this year.

Thanks, We can hardly wait to get her out this spring. We plan on going to Gillette and enter the Vintage Concourse D'Elegance. Don't expect any awards just need a goal to complete Nelli Sunshine. My winters job is making sure all seams & windows sealing is perfect, finish the curtains and figure out a shower curtain & rod. Glenn will be working on the black tank pan.
