hinges for a '63 entry door?

Does anyone know where I can find a replacement pair of hinges for a 63 tradewind?

Doug.

Those hinges are no longer available.

You might find some, from a wrecked unit.

Right down the road from you is Camper Repair Center in Montevallo. They repair Airstream wrecks all the time and might have some laying around. 205-665-2531.

Camper Repair Center has no idea what they have and what they don't have.....

I have stopped in there and talked with Sonny. He's very helpful. I also met his dad. that's all I'm going to say.



I guess I should have worded my question more specifically. Anyone know of a possible source for a salvaged pair. I assumed it would have to be taken from a donor but wasn't very clear in my post. sorry.

Have you considered getting it repaired, possibly have the broken pieces fabricated? If you have a good metal shop in town, they may be able to make it work again and save you from having to hunt down the right parts. I don't know if these are particular to the 63s--it certainly does look different from the hinges on our '61 (though I suspect they may be replacements, too).

I was just trying to help. Good luck.

Sorry Randy,


I'll get down off of the soapbox now...

BTW, this IS one of the nicest, most polite forum boards that I've been a part of...

I didn't intend to drag it down because of an unfavorable experience.

I do appreciate any advice given.
thanks as always.
