Almost 4 Years to The Day

It was a day much like today....September of 2012, when I purchased my '72 Trade Wind from a farmer in Minnesota....where it had been sitting neglected for a number of years.

Now, nearly 4 years to the day, I can finally say that for all intents and purposes, my full monty is complete. Of course, there will always be things to do...perhaps we get to know each other. But I have already enjoyed several short trips, and everything works as I had dreamed it would.

So, just a few last pictures of the trim work I have been installing over the last few days...and restoring the nomenclature to a vibrant blue.

Safe Travels All! It's been a great adventure....(and somewhat more ways than one....)

Trade Wind....Take Me Away......

Did Arktos55343 take the "Internet Cure" or just the "Airforums Cure"?

I wouldn't blame you if you lost Airforums URL, yup, this place got me into a whole lotta trouble too!

I stopped in and visited for a while a week or so ago with his Airstream & it presents as a work of Art, period. Best fine craftsmanship from the tailgate of a work truck I've ever seen. His trailer did seem lonely though, perhaps there will be another soon?

Arktos55343, congratulations and we'n hope to hear of adventures and fine-tuning the systems soon!
