First Airstream

Hello All
My wife and I just bought our first Airstream. It's a 73 Excella 31'.
It is getting a complete shell off rebuild. We have removed the interior and saved some of it. If someone needs something please let me know. I have kept things like light fixtures and fan covers, speaker grills, and a original oven that is in great shape.
As we go through this adventure I'm sure we will be looking for advice.

Welcome and Congratulations!
I hope you enjoy yours as much as I do mine. I still get happy when I step inside. Put your not needed parts in the classifieds and watch them disappear....
