I just spent the holiday weekend removing the insides of mine...the mind reels at the possibilities of filling an empty A/S

drig, what color is your bath? Aqua? Yellow? White?

D, Do youself a big favor and take pictures as you remove things. The mind grows fuzzy over time. Try the search bar in the upper right corner. Lots and lots of info there. Almost too much sometimes......LOL!

I think the official color is ugly, I'm not sure though. No, seriously, the plastic cabinets are yellow, with some blue, yellow, and white striped contact paper, veneer on the door fronts and upper walls. Does anyone know how to get the pocket door out to fix or replace it? Mine is damaged on the bathroom side from something sticking out on the inside of the wall. Also, do I have to have all the electronics replaced for safety resons, or can I make so with the existing system?

Lee, I have been taking more pictures than a tourist. I will try to post them soon. Also, some of the original tiles have broken when I was taking out the other floor coverings. Does anyone know if these contain aspestos(?) I did wear a dust mask, but do I need to be more careful? Thanks, D

Wear a good mask rated for asbestos. If you don't break the tiles into small bits your exposure will be low. Wash everything you're wearing while removing tile.

Thanks Lee, your input is greatly appreciated. My parents are currently looking through my grandpa's old pictures because my dad thinks my grandpa used to have one back in the 40's or 50's! I always knew that guy was cool!

Things to look at!

D' Here are some sites I found handy. Vintageairstream (scroll down)is a place to find pics of vintage airstreams and a restoration resource. Airstreamtrailers is also a good resto site. My wife posted these pics of our projects.

Lee, did you keep the plastic bath, or did you replace it? I want to make mine nice on the inside, but plastic doesn't exactly scream quality. I am thinking of putting alum. flashing on bathroom walls and door fronts. Spice it up a bit. I wanted to do copper flashing, but at $3.00 an inch, it seemed a little much.
