I must be a "cup half full" kind of guy, as I seem to attract the REAL projects! I think this one was owned by some goth Salvador Dali groupies! It's all black and melted on the inside!



Yes, that's a melted clock







Had to post my traditional "heap of interior on the ground pic:

It looks bad, and to some it might be a throw away, but I'm into it for the cost of the tires (which are brand new!), and it will give us a blank canvas. I have it almost all gutted now and will pull the interior skin and replace it with shiny new aluminum. This should be the best one yet!

Looks like a great project. Have fun with it and I am looking forward to seeing what your vision does with this one. I know it will be good.

Based on how well your Argosy turned out, I have no doubt that next project will turn out great too!

Yowzers. Looks like it was in the oven at 325 for a while! Glad it was "free"!

It was slightly more than free, but only just! I've got it gutted out now except for the interior skin and that will probably be coming off tomorrow or sunday. I want to get all the smoke tainted bits out as it stinks a wee bit. It is looking remarkably solid with little to no floor rot. The only thing that I will need to replace due to the fire (aside from everything!) with stock pieces is the left front window trim. The rest of it will be wide open to design. Not 100% sure where it's headed but I think modern and clean will prevail.

I know it's been a while since you posted here, but it was great to meet you two today. Can't wait to see the latest photos of this project when you're ready to share.

For inspiration, here's another interesting thread from a couple who restored an Airstream that had been through an exterior fire which also caused internal damage: http://www.airforums.com/forums/f516...ud-131783.html

If you don't mind me asking, how did you anchor it? And what are the strips of wood on the walls and floor?

Hi go_lope. Sorry for the delayed reply. I haven't been on here much lately.

Unfortunately with Photobucket deciding to now charge $400 per year to host, all my images are gone. I'm really unhappy with their greed taking out so many informative threads.

The tub is a sheep watering trough, and the wood in the bottom of the tub and on the walls is cedar. The method of attachment is a trade secret, but let's just say some sort of commercial grade adhesive/sealant was involved in the process.


On a side note, what is the preferred photo hosting site these days? I'd pay something reasonable like $29.95 for hosting, but $400 is highway robbery!

Hello again! We use SmugMug, works out fine. Unlimited storage, more reasonable pricing, I think.

Thanks! Are you still able to see all the photos, or just some? I only see the first few.
