Welcome to the Airforums. One thing that may help with your project is our group just south of you in GA. The GA Unit of the WBCCI has a campground just north of Helen, GA which is fairly close to you. We hold rallies from April-October, and our next one is October 17-21. There will be a lot Airstreamers in the park then with a lot of knowledge which we are happy to share. The October Rally is also one of our "swap meet" rallies where people bring parts, and other Airstream stuff which may help in your restoration. Please consider coming down and joining us.
