Good to know I am not the only one who is being threatened with being homeless for a strong attachment to Airstreams! If the 64 Overlander is a good deal, let me know....I can take a trip to Idaho!! He doesn't need to know......Yippee

An update for all those interested... The new Wasaga Mobile has landed in Baltimore. I am so blown out, I almost am seeing triple right now. I will send Chris some photos tomorrow and I am sure he will share them with you all.

Frank I have started the new thread for the Buddha Baby. It's in the 1961 Sovereign sub forum. Try to get some sleep now before you do the VAP tonight.
A million thanks for all the fantastic effort you went to.

It's been a couple of weeks since I last posted anything about the polishing. Life and business keep getting in the way but I did manage to get some decent time in this week. The front end cap is done and now I'm working my way back on the roadside. I can only work on it from Tue thru Thurs now and hope to get some more work done next week.

Thanks Lance I'm still jealous of your progress you'll be camping long before I finish the polishing let alone finish the trailer.

Polishing is so dirty to then provide such a shiny finish.

Looks great Chris! Like you, I haven't found much time to work on the AS. Life just keeps getting in the way. Sad she's not ready because now I have to go tent camping with my son next weekend.
Keep us posted on your progress and keep up the good work (like anyone really needs to tell you to do that).

The shine is looking great, it would be nice sometimes if life would just be more understanding of our projects!

Hey Chris,
I have my AC shroud off. The old white paint is bleeding off onto the side of the trailer when it rains and needs to be painted. I think a silver shroud blends in and minimalizes the size. I'm taking it to the paint shop today. Do you happen to have the paint chip number or color code? Thanks.

Lance The shroud I used was a new one from our mutual "friend" in California. It is fiberglass and the original one was plastic. mine was so badly degraded that it fell apart during removal. Are you sure your's will stand up and last?
As to the paint color all I know is that it was some sort of Ford silver. I left it up to the body shop manager at my Ford dealer to find a silver color that was close to aluminium. I called the deler just now and the manager will get back to me.
The pinstripe was an off the shelf thing that looked close to the Ford tractor blue I used to repaint the letters. Ford tractor blue can be found at TSC (Tractor Supply Company). I think you have TSC stores down there.

Thanks Chris. The shroud was replaced in August 2003 by a PO with a new $225 fiberglass unit from your friend's company. Appreciate the help, as always.

Hey Lance I got a message from the body shop. The paint code was either Ford TS or Chrysler PS2. He can't remember which one he used and would need to see the parts to tell which one they did use. He did not document the code so can't tell me for sure.
