Proud new owner of a '66 Ambassador!

Finally brought her home and I'm still amazed that everything works!

I'm probably going to have a million questions, but for now...
1) What can I use to clean the bathroom sink & tub? Is it possible to get them really clean?
2) I need to replace the rubber seal on the windows. The old stuff is hard, brittle, and broken in some places. Is that something I can buy at a glass store, or is it specifically Airstream? What do I ask for? And is it a DIY job?
3) I'm missing one of these little metal gadgets to keep my bath door closed. Any idea where to find one?

I'm really hard-pressed to find something to fix... I bet I'll find a good, long list after our maiden voyage.

Thanks,
Tracie

Happy Mothers Day.

My posts tend to be a bit over detailed and long winded. Use the search function. There's tons of attempts at cleaning, but paint is the final solution.

Yup, welcome to the leak management of 66,67,68 windows.

Right now, I'm on my way to get things going for my 90 year-old mom. I'll be back...

I've looked at VTS several times. The only window gasket I see is for '69 and later; my windows do not have metal trim.

Oh thanks! I had been looking in "Airstream Window Parts".
