72 Restomod

Shell off and working on the frame! The shell has its fair share of debts and dings but overall itís good enough for me. The outriggers are rotted off and I will building my own and taking the frame in for sandblasting. I picked up a gallon of Eastwoodís Rust Encapsulator Plus a aerosol can of internal frame paint. Any input is welcome as I am very new to the forum world! Thanks

Frame repairs 72 errr 73 Restomod

Frame repair on the Airstream. Airstream wanted $32 a piece for each out rigger and I needed probably 14 making them well over $400. I opted to have a local shop take 14 gauge steel and bend it into a C channel then took my plasma cutter and cut the half circle on the end and squared up the other side with my chop saw. This cost me $100. I had Sam grind the slag off the frame while I fabricated the pieces and welded them on. I used a piece square tubing to make sure they were true. Team work makes the dream work..😝 *Sam is my wife
