Should the inner fender liners be under the floor? In other words install the fenders first then the floor. I noticed the great floor finish picture that there are no fender liners. I am just about ready to start installing my floor and fenders but i think mine were under the floor.

On my 67 Caravel the wheel wells are sandwiched between the floor and the frame / outriggers.

On my 57 it's the same way. The flange on the wheel wells goes between the plywood and the frame

Part of my reasoning for building a new frame ,aside from the fact that it was rusted and falling apart, was to build a custom frame and floor to accomodate larger tires and wheels . So the wheel wells are to be custom as well.
I am planning on the kitchen cabinet to be supported by the wheel wells as well and they will be made of 3/4" plywood and lined with metal .

Not much accomplished with the holidays and then getting sick.
I must be a glutton for Airstreams,I mean punishment. I just picked up a 1968 Ambassador. It is mostly gutted and has the usual rear frame rust. I originally bought it for parts , but now that I have it home away from the patio that it was sitting next to,it actually looks better than I thought. I might sell it quick if anyone wants it , but I might start robbing parts off it.

Anyone want to save the Ambassador before I rip it apart?

for the inner fender... I would arrange so that it is 'removable' without disturbing the floor. In other words, they should be mounted from the outside of the AS interior. You can properly seal so that water has difficulty getting underneath and attack the frame or floor... AND, should you ever throw a shoe damaging the underside, you could remove the damaged fender from the wheel well area without tearing up inside the AS..

I was just looking at the wheel wells this weekend trying to figure out what to do, but I like your plan! I will look closely at that before I proceed.

Question for you on the insulation. I noticed you did one layer of 1' and it was on top of the frame. Then you placed the plywood on top. Is that what I am seeing? Why not two layers of the 1' and why not under the frame in between? Thank you!

The insulation was cut to fit between the frame,so the floor is sitting on the frame. My tanks are going up into the frame and touching the insulation,I didn't want to lose another inch of space taken up by insulation. We won't be camping in the winter so Im not too worried about the floor being cooler in the summer.

A lot of small things to do that take up so much time! Finally have the 2 maxxair fans , and vent with maxxair cover on. Polished the roof in a few areas before I set them in.
I also de-anodized bunch of mouldings so I was able to polish them easily!

Please explain the procedure for "de-anodizing" the moldings.

I mixed 2 tablespoons Drano granules in 1 gallon of warm water and put it in a 1 1/2 " abs pipe capped off at one end. Insert the moulding and leave for a 1/2 hour or more ,then rinse of with a pressure washer. Be careful of the fumes and use rubber gloves when handling. I only had an 8ft piece of abs , but I did one end of the 14ft piece ,then flipped it end for end.
