DIY Channel - Airstream restoration project

The DIY Network TV show 'Classic Rides' starts next Friday (10/7/05). They will be featuring the restoration of a vintage Airstream over ten episodes. I posted the ten episode agenda and schedule here.

The show should provide some useful restoration tips for all of us Vintage Airstreams.

Thanks

I had read in AL that this series was going to start this fall, thanks for the update. It will be interesting to see what the members of this forum think about the show. I think we all agree that the "While you were out" Airstream could not have been worse.

Based on the show agenda I'm anticipating some very good restoration info coming our way. i've watch other DIY restoration projects hosted by Kevin and the programs were well done.

Darn...no DIY network coverage in my area plus my TV set is old and doesn't go up that high in the channels (i.e., channel 180). Can someone create a "podcast" of this show? Is that allowed? Is it possible to do?

I didn't see that episode, but While You Were Out does really trashy re-dos of rooms--I can imagine how awful an Airstream one would be.

So far so good. Guy is going into good detail of their plans and not shreading it like "while you were out you girlfriend let us ruin your Airstream" .

OK the guy didn't mention the fact that it needs new axles (yet), and are those aluminum propane tanks? If they are and in good condition they can be fitted with OPD's and re-certified... They look like they might be steel, though...
