Welcome to the forum! This is the best place to learn all things Airstream! Lots of help here!
I suggest you take zillion of pics while making repairs. Hubby did a frame off restoration on our 63 Bambi and they sure came in handy when reassembly time came! It is amazing how much we can forget in a few weeks on where "this thing" went....
Also recommend you check out the rally calendar and start looking for rallies near you. Most will begin in the spring, some sooner... even if you haven't finished your Airstream, you should attend. Meet folks, talk Airstreams. Great place to get first hand advice and see what others have done!
Again, welcome. Glad to have you aboard!
