RESTORATION WRAP UP All good things must come to an end. We have a few hanger-oners not wanting to leave, but the party is officially over for this year. I've posted a few more videos, but again, these videos only give you a flavor of what goes on at the RestoRally, you really need to be here to experience it.

Topics covered include: disk brake install; trailer valuation; sheet metal; polishing; upholstery; Zolatone application; doors/windows; solar; cabinet making; plumbing; tanks; electrical, maintenance, etc.

New videos posted: #705 Steve/cabinets; #706 Luke/maintenance; #707 Kip/metal; #708 Uwe/solar; #709 Ken/upcoming rallies. ps - Ed, sorry to have missed you as you taught 50/60s windows in the classroom...next year??

Chris & Lisa....LOVED the night time LED presentation!

A BIG THANK YOU! to Ken for organizing such a great weekend. This 'rally', which is truly more a seminar, classroom, hands-on conference has really become a major hit. Be sure to calendar this event for next year....did you hear that, Ken?!

We had a WONDERFUL time at this rally - our first one and we learned tons of stuff from the experts! We highly recommend this rally to anyone needing to work on or thinking about working on a vintage AS. Its really nice to have faces and friendships to go along with the names of people we've read and posted with and to on the forums. It's just so great to meet everyone!

Kay and Chris

Ok Ok - by popular demand, we will do it again next year.. As always it will be the weekend before fathers day - whenever that is.......

We promise to do what we can to make this conference (think we are even changing the name) better each year - we already have a lot of ideas on the table - so stay tuned!

For those who attended this year, we thank you again - from what I can see, it was a great success - the weather was great too!

Island vent question from restor. rally

Hi Roger. Thanks for all your advice this weekend. I would have PMed this but couldn't see how to attach a picture that way. Question: is the Island Vent you mentioned in your plumbing workshop the one pictured here?

Finally made it home safe.....after a long hot day and night to get a part repaired for my TV......
It was very enjoyable sharing information and just having fun. There is so much to learn at this event.....looking forward to next year.

Looking forward to attending next year. The recent move to Mesa prevented us from attending this year.

Ken: Only wish I were better at it...there was so much GREAT information to capture at this year's conference! Already looking forward to next year!

SilverFoxRae...thank you for introducing me to that great tea from Strbx. That will be my afternoon pick-me-up! Happy to hear your trip home went better than your journey to Albq!

And Levon....your refreshments were also, hmmmm, refreshing!

Lynda - are you kidding? I thought you did a really great job of capturing what we are trying to do - make this the seriously best conference for Airstream restoration - you do have to be there to really appreciate it.

Great job!!

Great folks all over the place.... First time at Enchanted Trails (maybe stayed there in the 50's) and great seminars. I did find all my lost raffle tickets.....do you have a clue as to what 50 dollars worth of red tickets in the pocket of a white shirt looks like when you wash them together? It was easy to find. I guess I can't use them again?

I am trying to get the Nomad ready for Rt 66. jeeze.....Tucumcari in July. We used to do that trip in un airconditioned cars all the time....night time across the desert. I am such a weenie now. See you there...I hope. Thanks again.

Once again, I had a great time, though I missed a few seminars I could really use this coming year.
I have one question that is still unanswered though: Who do I owe for that bottle of Patron silver?
