New Owner, Lots of Work but Looking Forward to it!

Greetings - we are the proud new owners of a 1980 31' Center Bath International and are excited to be a part of such a wonderful group of owners! We have a good amount of rehabbing to do over the course of the next several months so I am sure I'll be posting for help. We are working on correcting a few leaks and consequently need to replace some of the flooring. (but we're excited!!!)
Thanks!

Yep, Welcome.

For your information I think you should know that the 1980 models are for various reasons considered to be part of the '70s era of Airstreams.
that "era" would be '69 thru '80 inclusive.
I mention this so that as you peruse thru the forums, that you pay attention to all things "70ish" . More so in my opinion than being misled by much of the '80s era ('81 and onward to wherever) stuff.

Thank you so much for the tip, as we were glossing over the 70's to concentrate more on the 80's! Any other recommendations would be appreciated!!

You might consider purchasing a "service manual" which offers considerable help when restoring.

Andy - Thank you for the tip! The service manual was one of the first items we purchased and it has made a world of difference!
