Restoration referals

Hello All,

I am a new member to the site and a new owner of a 1981 31ft Excella that needs inside and out restoration. I have always loved the airstreams, have never owned one and do not even know anyone that owns one. So I need help in finding the right person to restore it for me. I live near Charlotte, NC and would appreciate any referrals that are convenient to Charlotte.

Regards

Restoration Realities

Welcome to the Forums.
I have partially restored two Airstreams.
The term "partially" is in deference to others who do frame-off, interior-gutting, tear-it-apart-and-start-over, restorations.
Depending on what is broken and needs replacing, a partial restoration will cost $3,000-$5,000 in a heartbeat.
It will take months and months of labor.
In my last, partial restoration I didn't recoup $1.00 for 12 months of work.
What is my point, you may ask?
Few of us could afford to pay to have an Airstream restored because of the labor involved and what it would cost if we were paying by the hour.
