My First Argosy

I bought and started the restoration on my 79 Argosy 24. It is turning out to be a great project. Does anyone have access to an owners manual? Any suggestions on restoring interior fabrics?

We used an aircraft grade paint to keep the fire engine red color from fading and I used rhino liner to coat the underside.

Great color you chose, looks good.

You can order an owners manual direct from Airstream for very little, I got one for my 76 Argosy.

Arcamedies, can you tell more about getting your owners manual from AS for Argosy. I thought they were unavailable. Thanks for any information you can share. ~G

I think we need to get you and Red together with the rest of the cool paint jobs.

Nice work you guys.
