We can never resist a challenge ! Memorial Day weekend we added to the Airstream 'pack'. The newest is a 1968
Avion Travelcade. The poor soul had become a target for paintball hoods ! OR possibly, a flock of Seagulls had overeaten mint chocolate chip ice cream with bad GI results.
The exterior had stickey blobs of residual paint. The rear bath had broken windows and the bright florecent blobs were also here and there in the interior. Lots of elbow grease and plastic razor blades later, the majority of the baked on paint is off... Someone had also used a power washer ( at least that looks like the root of the stripes in the finish).
This is one well built trailer. The rubber spring axel system was amazing. Used to the rough ride throwing EVERYTHING not stowed away around in our various Airstreams... There was a resin Bear statue on the kitchen counter, we left it there being of no value.... after at least 70 miles several killer railroad tracks and multiple corners, I was amazed
to find the light weight Bear right where it started the trip. Quite a smooth ride!!
If anyone has any suggestions how to remove the remainder of the paintball residue, it would be appreciated !
Will add photos as we dive into the interior ! Photos are before and after the scrubbing.... Also, the little bear who survived..... Maybe because it's an Angel Bear ?????
