Awsome!!! An official one RIVET Member.

Holidays can keep hobies at bay. I'm back at work and hope to have the bath pulled before christmas and over the holidays replace bath floors.

Couple of ?'s that maybe some can point me in the right direction

1- has anyone ever heard about converting rear bath to center bath???

2- can i replace bath floor and complete interior this winter and focuss on tanks, running gear, and por 15 on frame in the summer? Don't have interior shop and its cold outside!!!

Thanks for anyones comments. HAPPY HOLIDAYS.

Theoretically it's possible, but not very practical. There are a whole lot of issues to deal with. (Not recommended)

The problem is, you're going to have some frame restoration to do once the floor is removed and this will best be accomplished with the floor out of the way (especially if there is welding involved). It's going to be pretty hard to keep the inside warm while replacing the floor.

Parting out

Sorry to say, three were no takers for this Amabassador in the classifieds. I'll be starting a new thread to document what parts will be available.

Joe, Sorry no one was willing to take the whole trailer off your hands. However, that being done with now you can tear it apart and make some money by scrapping the aluminum and copper parts that no one else wants and sell off the still useable interior pieces. I personally think you will come out ahead as the trailer did have the rodent leftovers issue. Lights, fixtures, vents, and the like would not be damaged by that problem and I am sure there are those here and on ebay the would be able to use those type parts. Remember that items like the windows/frames, exterior access covers, and the entry door/screen will all net you some good sales. Keep us up to date on parts available and parts sold. I may be able to take some things off you hands myself. Save all the "cove" style aluminum mouldings that are in good shape. Keep all the interior and exterior sheets/skins as somebody may need them to repair a useable trailer with them. Exterior end caps are always getting damaged. Good luck with the tear down and keep us informed. Happy Trails, Ed

Joe, forgive my poor memory. Did we ever determine the year of this Airstream? I really do need a piece of lower rub rail if that's going to be available. Please post a link here to let us know where the new thread will be. I'm not here as much as I used to be, so I don't want to miss out! Thanks in advance.

Jim

Arrow Where's Paul Harvey when ya need him?

Well Average Joe;
this thread sorta transitioned to this one http://www.airforums.com/forums/f44/...rts-38145.html

But that one petered out pretty quick too.

How bout the "rest of the story"?

Or at least some more of the story...

What became of the mystery mouse house?

BEDFORDS, up in Littleton, with a little help from me (ahem, ahem), convinced AVERAGEJOE to give him the whole Ambassador. He's been cleaning it and beginning the refurbishment project. You can see his progress here:
