'62 Bambi first panel replacement...

So here is my first post and a long over dew one for that matter. Ive owned my 62 Bambi (L.A factory) for 5 months now and have had a great time reading all the information from many fellow airstream owners. Ive just recently replaced the rear compound curve panel with an OG panel thanks to Andy and Michele over at Inlandrv. It fits nicely but I have run out of day light so I will post some more pictures of my work when i have more day light.

WHAA? i was just told today the pre-68 NOS panels were "NOT FOR SALE". did you buy the NOS or the 1969 - 82 segments?

did you use olymics or remove endcap and buck it?

I ordered from InlandRv about a month ago 3 curved panels fresh off the factory line 51 years ago(uncut, kinda scratched and not looking super great). The first three arrived crumpled from the delivery company. I was told on re-order that they had 3 left in the inventory. I'm trusting InlandRv. Basically I may have gotten the last 3. Who have you been looking at for panels?

Oh... and yes I used Olympic rivets shaved them down and look super good. I'm a one man show so even though I wanted to "Buck" it's impossible solo.

Edit: how did you come across your bambi? got other photos? looks nice from the bit we can see so far!

Well being the rarity and limited availability of those panels. ...Those prices are crazy but I'm not to sure what your trailer is requiring. I'm not sure I understand the quote of a price only to say there unavailable? Also the 3 I paid for were not cheap what so ever!!! Also shipping company was Estes I was the first damaged order in 20 years... My luck. I drove 6000 miles to get my Bambi. And yes ill put some more pictures up. Don't no why my profile picture is not showing?

Let me no what your looking for I may have some details about salvage here in Texas.

Cheers

Our office customer service ladies are not supposed to get involved with technical matters.

We have many segments for the pre 1968 trailers, but not all of them. In most cases, a substitute can be used.

I assure you that we will have a metting tomorrow about this matter.

Andy
