Restoration Help Near Atlanta, GA

Hi everyone!

We recently purchased a 1977 Overlander that is already partially gutted. We would like to find someone to help complete the breakdown and get her fit for the road. We then plan to start with a clean slate on the inside and build it up from there either on our own or also using a contractor/hobbyist.

Any suggestions for help with the remaining demo and making sure it has "strong bones?" We would prefer someone near Atlanta but are willing to haul it further for good, quality, trustworthy work.

We are working on a pretty tight budget and would love any opportunity to put sweat equity into the job to help keep costs down and also to learn and be as involved with the journey as possible!

Thanks for any suggestions!

Rob Ditchen is a little north of Atanta and he does restoration work. He does great, quality work - he's very creative and meticulous. We've toured two of the trailers he and his wife Katie restored and they are unbelievably nice. He has a large family and has configured his personal trailer to sleep 8+ and it's so nice and spacious inside. He and his family were featured in Airstream Life's most recent mag - winter 2015. His airforums name is skatiero - you may want to pm to discuss your needs. Nice, honest guy.
