Key got me started a couple of weeks ago on this purchase. Remembered that navyspook had upgraded his headlights when he was on the Forum, so did a bit of research, and a bit of 'googling' to find what I was looking for, AND at the best price.....

High beams will no longer have the fluting on inside of lens, instead, a great looking clear lens and will use the brightest possible bulb. I believe navyspook made mention of the fact that with units being mostly plastic, I'll need to stay with a fairly conservative bulb.

Thank, thanks to Steve (Key), he got me started on the hunt for projector style low beams. And to throw something different, projector lights with LED surrounds.....

Found them! Worked 12 hours today, got home in the dark, so this might have to be a Sunday job....

Set of headlights on the left, I purchased from Amazon, Amazon.com: Pilot WI-HL6A 4656 Head Lamp Conversion Kit: Automotive

Set on the right, I was able to find for a halfway reasonable price, Universal 4x6 SMDx16 LED Projector Headlights

Won't be much help about installation, it's the busiest time of the year for your Airstream MailMan, at work before dawn, not home until WAY past dark. Actually have Christmas day off....

Installation photos will be posted on my thread, 1989 345LE.

Thanks, Derek

Chrome Lug Nut covers

Cuz, as Key says, "Winter is here, Cover your nuts". Found these on eBay, great deal, seller will sell any amount you need. Of course, on the P-30 chassis, 5 on each front wheel, and 10 each on the back four wheels. Another Sunday project.

Thanks, Derek

The local Kroger chain offers fuel discounts. Took it out for a drive to get the fluids flowing and batteries charged. Got 35 gallons for "cheap".

Ford power seat swtich

Followed Brad's advice, purchased the Ford power seat switch on eBay. Perfect fit. Exact same power hook-up as the original. Weird that Airstream used a Ford power seat switch, but of course, the A/C control is from a Chrysler....

TPMS and Big @.. clock

The wife and kids got me a really big clock for the moho (iphone in corner of picture) Now if the only made iphones that big, I could see my spelling mistakes! Yeah, yeah, some have suggested spell check/auto correct. Well I turned it off after having a few texts suitable for: Damn You Auto Correct! Funny iPhone Fails and Autocorrect Horror Stories

Well she is ready to roll, just not ready to glamp in, although cots and folding chairs are a definite possibility this summer if the weather stays bad and work stay busy.

An attempt last weekend to pull existing front clearance lights convinced me it was time to go LED. Decided that units costing $9.00 everywhere I looked was a bit much for me at the time. Continued my search on eBay and came across these 3 LED units for $5.00 a piece. Anytime you can save about $40, it's always a good thing.....

The only other consideration are the 3 rear lights that are mounted to the skin. The new lights have to have enough space on the back for the wires. Most LED's I looked at, didn't have it.
