gary n Congrats on the "63" TW We also have a "63" TW and love it. Had it out many times with no problems. The only major thing i did was to install a new axel, other than that it is all origional and all works. What kind of work does your AS need? How is the axel ? I started seeing poped rivets after trips and things out of place, the new axel fixed it all.Do you have any pics? Here on the forums we all love to see pics. Good Luck with your new "63" TW.

Welcome to the forums and to the world of all things Airstream! This is a great place to find answers to the questions you will have once you begin working on your 'stream. We have vintage and love it! Hope to see you on the road in California some day!
