I have the simulators and they are nice....but the Alcoa's are the best. I have tried the salvage yards like Colaws etc. but nothing yet. I know they are out there...hopefully someday.

I have a 1989 Airstream motorhome 3700LS on a Gillig chassie with a 460 Ford and a C6 Ford transmission. No overdrive.

1. It drives and works well at 55-60 mph but at 70, the RPMs are running around 4000 which I believe is too high to sustain for a distance. I am having trouble having the fan belt stay on at this high RPM.

2. I would like to know where to buy or where to have rebuilt the hydromax (which is the booster for the brakes).

Thank you

Few small things have arrived in the last couple of days, but two which will let me complete a couple of medium sized jobs. POR-15 chassis and top coat for the rear tow bar and front bumper mounts. But I am more looking forward to the column dress-up kit.



The original bright work/knobs are just too rusty to polish up, and currently there is no gear shift indicator so it is roulette when it comes to knowing what gear I'm in. Plus The current selector rod is touching the instrument cluster so I bought a couple of different lengths of new ones to see if I can stop it resting on the dash

I like how your mudflaps turn out. Did you use a special paint that adheres to the rubber and did you tape off and spray or brush the paint on? Looks good and dresses it up.

External Acrylic house paint. Has to be paint that is flexible, so no Oil-base.
I cleaned the letters with Lacquer Thinner and used a dense short foam roller.
Only took 30 minutes per coat to do all 4. if you miss, let it dry and then use some real coarse sandpaper (like 80 grit) to clean it up
Time will tell how it holds up.

I believe they were options, like aluminum wheels. The script Airstream font is my favorite and, I believe, was used only during 1979-1989 on Motorhomes and some trailers starting in the mid 80's.

Buy a new set of mud flaps and cut the script airstream out of some white neoprene. Vulcanize it on.

You could scale up the picture above and print it for a template.


I'm missing one and might do that instead of the chrome "sitting lady" to avoid the PC police!

My 93 LY has the exact same mud flap with the same Airstream font so they must have put them on later models. I have the original sales invoice and mud flaps were not listed as an option in that year.
