Looking forward to meeting my vintage family, and if yall act like my family at a reunion this should be a hoot
Maybe I'll learn enough to actually be able to bring my trailer next year

As I am going to be giving the metal working presentation, is there anything specific that the attendees would like to see. I need to prepare for this early as I am not getting back from a research trip until the 5th of June and it will be a real short turn to get to Albuquerque on the 7th.

Looking forward to seeing you at the rally. Could you do a piece on rivet nuts? I see them mentioned on the forums but have no experience with them.

ok Kip, lets see... Basic riveting, metal repair, forming and patching, sealing, and maybe flush rivets and edge bead forming. Did I forget anything important? We've only got 4 days to become experts.
Turn and burn Kip!
see you at the rally

DENT REMOVAL!

How about a specific project with plans like an interior wheel well, or a refrigerator chimney vent (to replace the ugly fiberglass ones)?

I don't ask for much do I?

This post has most of the info on how to do it. I'll bring the Airstream with this in it.

Very nice Zep! I currently reading your whole post, it's inspiring!. Yes, that's what I was thinking, although mine would be longer due to a shorter fridge.


Aerowood,

How about a tutorial on how to use my new (reserved) roller!

Another idea, fabricating new window frames? My old ones are so covered in paint and silicone, seems it would be easier to bend new ones? I realize they are pretty basic but thought I'd throw it out there.

We're looking forward to another fun-filled rally where we always leave with more information than we can get our heads around...well, for me, anyway! But the rally is so inspiring that you want to begin work on your vintage...immediately!

We're traveling by way of Alumapalooza in Jackson Center, Ohio...anyone else making the trek from JC to ABQ?

Original disk brakes

Anyone interested in the disks and calipers from the original (1977 in this case) brake system? All four are removed and all parts (disks/hubs, pads, calipers, bearings) are available. They all appear serviceable, but no guarantee that the pistons are free.

Demand by interested buyers in small vintage Airstreams has increased the value of these gems over the past few years. Jim Polk (SilverPal2), an ASA certified appraiser, will conduct a seminar on values of vintage rigs. More specifically, on values over a range of time; and various levels of restoration and how it affects value.

Looking forward to seeing some new faces and the 'old' familiar ones!
