Airstream Reno: First Steps?

Hi All:

Exterior polished, interior cleared out, frame/chassis reinforced, new floor and documented.

Seems like the obvious next step is to bring down the interior skins and redo the insulation? Any recommend threads for this?

I also need to add water tanks, plumbing etc as the plan changed after new floors were in already. Airstream supply said it bed to install and make the repair in the floor.

Any thoughts and recommendations and the phase I am in would be greatly appreciated.

Warm Regards,

Ryan

Do a search for the 'fully monty' threads in the restoration section of the forum and read them. These will give you a good idea of what you'll need to do.

it may already be too late, but you might want to have your head examined before proceeding any further . . . ;-)
