Oh, I wish we could. Alas, we spent the last week to help my parents pack their stuff (move up to Pueblo for health care), so there's about a ton of deferred maintenance around here.

Is there any plan to have a vintage rally in the future in the northwest? I'd be game for that. Were headed on our maiden voyage this weekend to the Oregon coast. Have fun friends. Ted

Yay! I am finally here will Zoltan and our "work in progress", our 1962 GT. Ok folks, there is still a lot to do on her. However, she is towable so I am here in our aluminum tent which is so much better than my nylon tent, last year. On the other hand; Not sure if anyone is in the Phoenix area, right now, and will get this e-mail in time. Although, I did get to the restoration rally at 9:30 pm tonight, For some stupid reason, I did not put on my leveler bars and man did I sway a lot from Winslow east. Although I have a sway bar, I was still very nervous & stressed while driving. If you are still home & coming up Fri. or Sat. is there a chance that hubby, (Bill, had to stay home) could get them to you to bring up to me for my drive home? pm us, reply to this, or e-mail if you can. Thanks so much.

We're here at the Rally. The weather is great and we're learning wonderful things like how to spray Zolatone, riveting, polishing and disc brake conversions. If you can ever make this Rally, I highly suggest it.

OK all you Vintage folks! The 4th Annual Vintage Airstream Restoration Rally...which is really much more of a seminar, hands-on, git 'r done, conference get together, is underway. I am attaching a link to a few videos taken so far. First off, I'm not a professional videographer, but you'll figure that out right quick. What I would like to share is a little snippet of the presentations so you get a feel of what happens here. You will be interested in the first five videos on the link, but I will add more as I can. Turn up your speakers and enjoy! Lynda Beringer Polk's videos on Vimeo

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!

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?

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.
