This weeks arrivals for Airstream

This weeks arrivals for Airstream Restoration...

Waterproof LED's for Shower Stall, plans are to install along corners, eliminating overhead light that I always seem to hit my head on,

4 gang light switch for use at entry door area of motorhome. This will eliminate the 3 separate switches that are there now, and gives me extra switch for LED night-light planned along upper cabinets.

Just cuz, you can NEVER have to many extra swtiches for upgrades....

Couldn't resist on the silver motorhome, even if it doesn't match mine, it was too neat.

Finally, this is on it's way. My 'big' Christmas present to myself. 15 1/2 foot long canoe......

Replacing front Captains Chairs

Decided that since I couldn't get much done in yard with the rain we're having, it's time to get inside of Airstream! Have had these seats taking up space for a couple of months now, but due to work, never had any spare time (or daylight) to get this done. Thinking new seats are a HUGE improvement over old! About to head out and get passenger side done. Will try and video tape the replacement, most likely without sound, as the driver's side replacement was FULL of expletives!

Clearance Lights

This things are going to be a total pain. Along with the existing lenses being caulked onto the housings, the electrical area on all 5 up front were literally falling apart due to age, as well, electrical contacts were burnt away on each and every one of them. Means I don't go anywhere before checking each and every exterior light......


Ahhhhh, more projects on my Airstream, who knew there was a never-ending list.....

LED Alternative

Hey Derek,

I replaced all the marker lights on my moho with these. As I recall, there was a bit of "adapting" required to connect power and ground (no electric genius required). They are completely sealed, so no issues with old sockets, twist in bulbs, or lenses. I think they were about $15 each. They look great, and draw less power.

eBay, 3 LED clearance lights

True,

I didn't buy the max amount of LED's clearance lights, but did save a bit of $$$ with these finds on eBay. $5.00 a piece! Bought them Tuesday morning before heading out early for gym, and they've arrived 2 days later. Now all I need is a day off with NO RAIN!.

Gives me time to get the housings polished......

Thanks, Derek

On our '84 there is a combination latch/handle on the front edge of each slider, about halfway up. Nice seat!

Hi,

Thanks for the compliment on the seat. Found these last year on shop4seats.com with free shipping. After I got a quote from local upholstery shop, knew it was time to start pricing a new seat. Had a VW CC with the tu-tone seats that I thought really looked sharp, so figured 'why not' on the new motorhome seats.

Been reading through some threads lately, and found where Myrtle lynn had a post about a transmission governor being replaced. Never could find where anyone ever listed a part number. I've started a spare parts tool box, and would love to go ahead and replace this part, as well as have a spare in toolbox. Anyone have any idea where to find this?

Thanks, Derek

Has anyone ever noticed that 5 bottom cleats on Classic doorframe are Phillips screws, NOT rivets like rest of door frame? Anyone have rivets at every spot?
Wondering if u should leave well enough alone, or pull screws and use Olympic rivets?Click image for larger version

Looks good Derek!
I have had good luck with roof liners etc by using an automotive foam carpet cleaner. I think Scotch guard was what I used last...

On our trailer we used a mixture of:
1 cup OxiClean
1 cup Febreeze
1 cup distilled white vinegar

Pour it into the rug cleaner and fill to the top with water. It removes stains, neutralizes any odors and leaves a clean scent.

Worked great and we plan on doing the same to the moho when we are ready to do the inside.

Has anyone ever removed their jack-knife sofa? Any hints?

Thanks, Derek
