Advice re: dent in skin/rib

I've been researching the exact alloy and found one obscure reference to 5005 alclad.
I would try the inner tube trick, it worked really good on a bird strike. It's fast and cheap, nothing ventured nothing gained!

This past summer I had a dent repaired in the passenger side of my AS - $10,500. It was not that bad to me but the whole side had to be removed to repair. I wish now that I had just kept the insurance money and lived with the dent. I could deduct that amount if I ever decided to sale the AS. The dent did not affect using the AS just the appearance.

Thanks, widworks. I know it's a lot to ask, but would you mind reporting back to the forum in a new thread when you receive these panels? Let us know how well they match up with the old panels and what it was like dealing with the new Inland RV.

@Algebrotha- Since it has now been determined that new panels are available from Inland RV, your solution B may be the way to go. You now have to decide if you would rather live with the scar from a small dent or stare at 2 spanking new, shiny panels that just don't quite match the rest of your trailer. I now face the same dilemma.

The tree trimmer may be a great guy, but this isn't about him. You have been harmed and are entitled to receive full restitution. Don't let him off easy. If the situation was reversed, I can guarantee you that he would squeeze you and your insurance for all he could get and more.

I just got off the phone with Liz at Inland. Liz was eager to help, informed, and friendly.


I Inquired about panel #20 for a 1968 GT. There is a reference to them in the online catalog, 1964 to 1968 part number 91091, with phone number, no price.


The price for 1968 panel #20 is $415.


I explained that, in a years ago post to Airforum, Andy had said they bought all the '68 and older parts and tooling. Then asked “Do you have the dies to replicate panels, and do you stretch-form them yourself?”


We get them from Airstream. The metal color won't exactly match the other old segments. The segment is oversized and will fit when trimmed”.


Shipping?


We have shipping centers across the country”


OH?? I live a few hours North of jackson center, can I go there and get one?”


If you buy from us, we can “Drop Ship” it at jackson center.


The online catalog has this photograph.


While I was waiting out the four hour time difference to call this morning, I searched with every key word imaginable about segment replacement. There's nothing I can find about new, pre-1969 replacement segments, except in this current thread.


In four hours searching, I'm amazed how a thread titled such as “1967 segment replace” can derail and degrade to pictures of snoodle dog twins, in just two subsequent posts. Searching for the answer proved fruitless. I did find this 10yo post, quoting Inland Andy… “We purchased all the 68 and older segments from Airstream many years ago.”


I forgot to ask Liz how long pre-1969 panels have been available. I don't recall ever seeing them, and looking at the picture, it's very big and wide, so wondering if it's a you-cut-and-trim-so-one-size-fits-all segment..

Thank you for your sharing your research, ALUMINUMINUM. This is good news; however, if I put a shiny, new panel on my trailer it could lead to a madness that compels me to polish the rest of my trailer to match.

It was reassuring to hear the Airstream excitement in Liz's voice, and I'm glad to find that Inland is very supportive to the "VIntage-Vintage" pre-1969 Airstreams.

Since you can purchase the $400 always on sale for $300 Harbor Fright English Wheel with a 25%-off online coupon, and pay $225 for their second generation hobby quality Chinese English Wheel, that's a good option for some. It's the same wheel that some on-line re-sellers ask $900 for.

With a little You-Tubes time, and some scrap metal, any damned fool can figure it out in a few hours, and learn something fun. It's all that dreadful segment rivet drilling and bucking and goo that's less fun...

I had a great time making my rangehood...
