Fabulously restored 1978 Airstream

Hi Everyone - I came across a great Airstream restoration by way of a Tiny House Blog article.

If you wish to skip the article, and jump straight to the pictures, click here.

This is definitely one of my favorite restoration projects I've seen.

Huh? Whatdid I miss?
Click on the link to see a picture of the Sioux River falls near my home.
Eastern South Dakota is very pretty with hills, rivers, and trees.

Very nice, especially the bathroom. But its so bright and white that I would be afraid to touch anything. Seeing the owner sitting in the doorway parked in the mud makes me nervous just thinking about all the mud and dirt that is going to get inside.

like it too, but that glass tile traveling down the road for years may become a pile of dust.
