Not if I want to stay married ...
I will always have a special feeling for Airstream classics though.

Nice work. Will be tackling fridge replacement next myself. Will take my questions with the 50 amp service to another thread so I am not hijacking yours!

Previous Owner did a very nice job installing white oak flooring. All I had to do is sand it for a few hours and then I stained it with Old Masters Pickling White Wiping stain. Next few days it will get 3 coats of Waterlox Clear coat.
Since I don't care much about the zebra effect, when staining oak a dark color, the pickling white did a very nice job in hiding the normally loud grain. It also is very forgiving when different types of wood were used, like some of base board is actually pine.

Found a source for the original curtain tracks used throughout the older motorhomes, including the tracks holding the curtains or blinds to the curved wall.
Aluminum Curtain Track Recmar 3294 | eBay
Still had these custom made woven woods from a previous Airstream that fit just perfectly. Had to fabricate some custom tabs that broke using a slim rivet and a washer to make it all work again

All LED now
My friend and forums member cwf was so kind to bring some LED strip that worked perfectly in my entry handles, thanks Channing !
This completes my interior LED conversion.
And btw, I am having a blast working on this 310. Got it inspected and licensed yesterday. This particular model is a pleasure to drive. All Bilstein shocks, 4 new airbags and a very tight suspension make for a great ride, not to mention the aftermarket Holley fuel injection. And no Tag axle !!
After having owned 280, 345 and now the 310, I am sold on the 310!

You work quick!

Hi Peter,
Wow, your 310 is done quick, if you work further that way! I love the white tinted oak floor, this is what we have as well, it natches perfectky the rose carpet abd the original interior and upholstery.
I regret now, i have not torn out the bed etc. before, so i stopped with the wood at the shower, i wanted the sleeping room with soft, thick carpet.
As you know, we had bad, old issues with leaks in the freshwaterline, so i had to torn out the back akso...!
The troublemaker was a worn rubber gasket in the shurflo pumpguard, somebody changed it without dilligence and many years, just a bit, but constant waterleak "crawled" under the carpet into the furniture.
Had hours and hours to look for, but fortunatelly i found it, once everything was torn out!
I will continue now and "pimp" a bit the sleepingroom by adding some bookshelfs in the back "wall", next week we hopefully begin to install the IMPCO system to run her on LPG. As you know, gas is terribly expensive here, allmost more than the double per Gallon and 5.5 mpg is a challenge...!
I tried to upload some pictures, don't know, if it was successfull.
Have fun with the 310, hopefully i will see her once!
