Not sure yet, I'll be spending alot of time in either Vancouver BC or Edmonton AB real soon, so not quite sure on what my schedule is going to be just yet. You can come down from the mountain and visit anytime. I always try to keep a few cold ones in the shop fridge

'71 Globetrotter Full Monte

Hey Kip, Very nice touch. I would also say that below the window above the license plate bracket, on the outside. That would be about eye level for safety. I can't wait to see what you do to the inside. All the best, Kenny

emblems

I reworked all the emblems while the weather is cold to keep at it. They were corroded so I sandblasted them with a fine silica first and then cleaned up the rough casting edges that were on the landyacht emblems. I then epoxy primed the recessed areas and then painted the lettering. After it had dried a couple of days I sanded off the excess black paint. I think they turned out pretty good. I still have to wet sand with 600 and clear coat.

Hey, Kip! GREAT JOB!! Jim and I met you at the Restoration rally in April '08 in Albq. Your beautiful wife and I spent some time in town and we all enjoyed your hands-on rivet class! We're happy to see the progress you've made on your coach. It's really coming together nicely! I'm about a journeyman bucker at this point. We have replaced practically all of the skin on our '54 Flying Cloud. My goal is to become Head Riveter! Hope all is well with you and yours! Keep up the excellent work!
- Jim (SilverPal2) & Lynda (SilverPal)

I started the painting of the AIRSTREAM letters and a buddy of mine bought a new toy to play with.

HI Kip,
Am I looking at a new french wheel? I've only seen antique ones before.
If so, I have some banana wraps to see you about!
Thanks again for the riveting class at albq. I really enjoyed it.
Rich

It's not mine, and it is brand new, as we assembled it this morning. It belongs to one of my co workers. I played around with it for about an hour. It will take so time to become proficient with it.
