Brad,

I'm thinking it would be fun just to see what it would bring on e-Bay, but you'd have to include the word "Airstream" or it's just a bunch of 2X4's and you won't get your $150.00 reserve.

The tanks look great, by the way.

Roy

I'd feel so silly shipping 6 pieces of 2x4 and 8 drywall screws all the way over there!

If you have a miter saw (or know someone who does) I'd be thrilled to simply send you the dimensions (which would be different if you have something other than a 30# tank anyhow) and you could toss one together in a matter of minutes! It's easy!

Perhaps we bring them both to Albuquerque next week and sell them to unsuspecting hot air balloonists as "ballast cradles"??

Brad,

Wow, what great results. I now have true polish envy but thanks for the advice. I am just starting to start my restoration with a great starting Excella. It is exciting to see the results others have enjoyed with some time and elbow grease. Airstreams sure evoke pride than the SOBs.

Joe

Thanks, but full disclosure: all the blemishes and dull spots seem to disappear in the photos. None of this looks quite as good in person. Almost though!

Couldn't agree more. Name one other brand that inspires a fraction of the blood, sweat and tears that we invest in these things. And without a hint of disgust ~ every one is a labor of love, projects begun and finished by choice.

Despite the fact they're often passed from one generation to the next by way of sitting in a farm field, I feel they're as deserving of the title "heirloom" as any old diamond bracelet hidden in some safety deposit box.

I couldn't agree more. i am hoping to get my unit "just right" so I acan enjoy it with my children and then pass it on to them to enjoy with theirs. Yes, that is an heirloom in my view.

Brad...any chance you could post the dimensions or email them to me. I'd like to get started on my tanks. Hope they look as good as yours. Thanks!

Bob
