Hi joyflea: May I ask how you edited your photos to get them upright? Folks talk about cropping them smaller. But that sounds like a lot of work.

That’s exactly what I did . I only have to crop the ones taken with my iPad . It is real easy to crop them on the pad . If I use my little camera and download into the pad I don’t have to crop ?
Thanks to everyone who have responded to the tread .

I don't have one of those i-thingies. I can hardly turn off the TV anymore. Technology has passed me by. To me, a crop is like corn, wheat, cotton, or soybeans. Crop a picture means make it dimensionally smaller, or less pixels? When I upload pictures from my "point and shoot" camera, AirForums takes care of all the sizing for me. Thank you AirForums.

Wire ig roughed in !

Got the rough in done on the wiring. Just need to make sure I havenít forgot something . The next week will be insulation but first I needed to move the heater vents to other side under where the oven was , as itís getting moved to road side under new stovetop . Drilling new holes made me a little nervous but all went good . The photo of heater is with old cabinets in general area out about 3Ē from wall .
I will make a cover , patch , for the old holes shaped like this welding project I did a long time ago . The 30 amp and cable plug will be located in it . Just the state not truck .Click image for larger version

Just caught up with your thread and I'd like to follow along. It'll help me get my Airstream fix while the snow is falling here in Vermont.

I was listening the the Vintage Airstream Podcast the other day and Colin Hyde was mentioning they always run extra 12v and 120v wires front to back and side to side for future use. I just closed up inner skin over my new wires and didn't do that and was wondering if that was on your list. I'm not sure what I would have done with the ends. May regret it when I need one sometime in the future.

Texas is a huge state. Doesn't surprise to see those temperature extreams, There are a lot of folks who travel from cold Minnesota to warm south Texas during some of the winter weeks to thaw out a bit.

Didnít rain today but everything is wet . Made a patch/mountingplate out of.063 3003 Al . Took a while to cut by hand with snips. Just roughed in , still need to lay out and drill holes for mounting rivets . Also made an 8ga wireing harness . Have polish coming in next week and will polish the new panel and body where it mounts and mount . Also will make sure top of plug is straight with the top of Texas . Onward thru the fog .

Hi: Very nice Texas adornment for your trailer as well as a "stiffener" for the power connection.

I made a similar patch for my old Trade Wind in the shape of my home state of Colorado. Perfectly square. Easy to make. Not very exciting.

Rainy days , yuck !

Some people say I have my head in the clouds , today they are right . Two photos are off my back porch , today you canít even see the mountain because the clouds have it covered up . The other is a normal afternoon .
Enough fusing , RV carport is deep so Iím working in the shop . Laid out holes for my rivets , drilled , chamfered and did a quick polish on Texas . Put some rivets in just to see what finished product will look like . Need to scotch bright to get rid of scratches and snip marks then repolish it. Canít wait to mount after I get the skin polished in that area .

Putting the toaster back together.

Well I insulted two rows and started putting the inside Al. on . Got the first long piece in place before I took a photo . Youíll have to trust me , there is insulation behind it . Got the first three pieces on and riveted up .
I polished a spot on one panel to see if my boss would like it . Nope , we will be sanding enough for paint to adhear to .
Got my Zip Dee awnings in and a shipment of parts I needed . Weather will be nice the next few days and I will polish a few spots to mount some exterior places for some parts . Will make it easier when I get ready to do the polish job latter on . Hope to get antenna, solar panels, awning, and the Texas patch on during nice days . Hope to be painted by mid November if I get some good days . BlueClick image for larger version

Always good to start the assembly process, although you've been at assembly for some time with wiring, plumbing, insulation and the like.

Glad you checked with the boss. You saved yourself a bunch of polishing.

You'll have plenty of nice weather coming up. It's Texas after all. And you're going to have a heck of a nice vintage 67 Overlander when you are done. Dream of the "bend" at Bonneville.

You can show " the boss" our thread if you want to see what a finished interior polish job looks like. My husband was the one pushing for the polished look and I just went along. It was his time and a huge effort I am happy with it but paint would have been just fine by me too lol.
