My apologies, I didn't see that one, for some reason. That, after going back over the whole thread when I first thought it was only set up for one.

Frame & floor complete..switching to exterior body

She is all riveted back together so we are declaring Stage 1 (frame & floor) complete. Stage 2 will be be main body panel modifications and patching. We went into the project with a plan...with the understanding that a plan is actually only a common point of departure. Translation = "we made a lot of changes along the way"

As we dive into the custom panel work we anticipate much the same. We will be switching to a different thread forum for Stage 2. The Hindenburger is mobile now....

Running gear

For a follow-up..... Both axles installed now.....we are running Goodyear Marathon Radial Trailer Tires ST 225/75R-15. They are mounted on 15' trailer wheels 15x6JJ on 5.5 from VTS. We ordered the wheels primed and will paint them to match the red accent color of the frame, hitch, and interior. They are capped of with cone hubcaps..... also from VTS.
*note-New belly pan got dinged by a runaway floor jack...will work it out later.....first beauty mark...more to come later.

Also...curb side service window is built and installed.

Tough flooring

The commercial grade vinyl floor covering held up well during the interior work. We have completed the interior skins and are preparing the Hindenburger for painting. Progress can be viewed on our blog. Airstream Forums - Hindenburger Hamburger Airstream Concession Build Project
