I can certainly see your points. Well thought out and not one I could disagree with. Certainly helps clear up the gender issue with our trailers.

i have started to work on him two afternoons per week and at least one day over the weekend. so here are some pics from tues night before the coronas started mysterly dissaparing form the ice chest (funny how that happens). any ways i am going back to work on him tommorow night and will get some updated pics. but just to give you a taste here are some pics of what i in for, and by the way the pic of the coupler you see is much better looking than what i found under/above the belly pan.
lots of joy to everyone


ps the dogs are loving this project

I must say, seeing that coupler makes one shiver at the fact that whoever did this thought it was acceptable. You can't help but wonder what's coming down the road at you when you see stuff like this. Love the pic of the dogs, they look like they can't wait for you to get your butt in gear and get the trailer done so they can go camping and in the meantime they can provide you with a wealth of advice.

so i went up to see my baby and take some more pics. this is the frist time i have seen the int. in the daylight since i took it apart. these pic kinda suck but the best i could do. it is amazing to see how many rivets have pulled out. i am also supprised to see that the back of the bucked rivets are just slightly mushromed. so any ways this weekend i will clean the inside and install the new fans and start the sheetmetal patches anyway thanks for all the help and support



just wanted to add has any one ever seen a flatened abs vent pipe like this. it is not only flantened but also curved and hidden in the wall. kinda wiered and cool at the same time

Not really a hijack

You really need to enter some of these pictures in the March Photo contest.

It's not the quality of the photo's over there its the content.

Also there's no tellin what will appeal to this months judge. Give it a shot.

Knocking the old fiberglass insulation off...

I found that using a stiff brush worked pretty well for getting most of the old fiberglass insulation off. I believe the one I used was actually a wallpaper paste brush left over from some old project. A shop vac is a very big help for restoring an Airstream. It is amazing just how much dirt accumulates during the process.
