Greetings from The Blue Moon Two

Hi all!

My wife and I just bought a 1958 18 footer. It's been in the family since 1963 but has been sitting since 1979. We are excited to begin restoring it!

Since we got it we've been on the forums reading as much as we can about it, getting inspiration from everyone here.

We're looking forward to "Livin' the Dream" with our restoration project!

Here is our new addition:



Justin and Mary

Hey there, how could we have missed welcoming you since Sunday morning? There are lots of Californians here, so you're in good company for your restoration project. Bummer - your picture didn't actually load in the thread, but the one in your profile pic looks cute. Looking forward to seeing your inside views too! Wendy

Very cool, and agree with Someday59, what a fabulous heirloom! The more I hang out here, the more I'd like to have a vintage unit ... there's not much to 'do' to ours, ah well - I can at least enjoy watching everyone else do theirs! Post pictures of the inside too - they are all so very different! Wendy

A warm welcome from Canada.

Oh my, anotherAluminitis victim.
We are in the same boat but will not be able to start reno until the spring.
Your baby is a beauty, visions of shinyness dance in our heads.
This site is a fantastic resource, I am totally hooked. Great folks, great and helpful advice.

Hi everyone! Well, it's been a long time since we introduced ourselves and new AS. Since that time we have had another addition to the family. Last month we had a beautiful baby girl so, needless to say, we haven't had much time to work on much. But now we are re-inspired to forge forward so we can take our little girl on trips and see the country.

My wife and I have been talking about our approach on where to start on our restoration and I think we're going to focus on the subfloor (as we figure a lot of things will shake out as we progress with that). Quick question for all the experts, can we feasibly replace the subfloor without taking the shell off. We are expecting to take the lower inner panels off but are trying to avoid the dreaded shell removal.

Over the next couple of weeks I will begin working on it again and am sure I will have a few (hundred) questions. I'll do my best to use the search function but apologize in advance if I ask questions that have been answered a million times before.

Thanks again and I look forward to sharing our progress in the months ahead.....

JaM (Justin and Mary)
