Do you mean that the interior skin is missing? If so, you can order 0.025" (or 0.032) aluminum sheet
in lengths long enough to do the full wall sides. Also, look at Aircraft Spruce and Specialty company for tools, rivets, etc. There are many other providers. If aluminum riveting is beyond your skills, Google for the nearest person who is building a Van's RV (in this case this does not stand for recreational vehicle) homebuilt airplane or go to a popular local airport.
Yes, start on floor first. Then electrical, then vents and air conditioning, then interior skin, then tanks and dump valves, then window and door seals, then bathroom, then all other cabinets (thinking of plumbing while you design them), then interior plumbing. Polish the outside while you're waiting for parts or have a spare hour.
One of the more expert Airstream rebuilders (UWE) is down in Orange County. Look for his posts on the forums. Nice guy--take a bottle of Two-Buck and go see his work. Sometimes he has interior pieces he's removed to make way for his own cabinetry.
Yes, you will be busy.
