A big thanks to Guy99 for offering up the original seat switches from his 310 so I could get the passenger seat to work again and fill the gaping hole in our 310. Thanks Guy

Since my previous post, I have had to be on the receiving end of much help from many people here on the forums. We'd be living in a cardboard box under a bridge somewhere if it hadn't been for them. Even down to the forum member that belatedly realized why we needed those underbed storage parts, and tore my check up, and sent them to me gratis.
Anybody that wants to be mentioned by name, drop me a PM, and I'll be happy to incude it here.

A special thanks to Lou and Larry Woodruff for checking out an Argosy for me. Also I must mention the continuing support and advise of the master, Balrgn. He is always there to help me with my Argosy restoration and repair questions. Quite a Yankee.

One thing I discovered is that if you are a routine/frequent shipper with FedEx frieght, you can become a "favored customer" and the shipping discounts are terrific, like $60 versus $250. We need to establish the Vintage Airstream Parts, LLC (VAP, LLLC) with a shipping number so we can get our stuff to each other for reasonable cost.

Ideas on how to ensure the "shipper" pays the bill, in such a virtual company?


well, blow me down, a simultaneous post on this subject right here (so I'll just drop this edit in place...)


Zep , this was a great idea that should be resurected. The other thread sort of died. With so many people criss crossing the country some might be willing to transport some things , depending on difficulty of pick up and drop off . Any way , It might be nice to have a special category for these post for those willing and those in need to see if it would work. I like the idea of the central shipping for discount also . Tell us more .

Kudos to Druupy for giving me a pile of vintage awning fabric at last Fall's Beverly Beach Rally. Thanks to him, Sparky will have a spiffy new awning soon!

overlander63 - Lewster

Thanks to Terry for being so generous with his mechanical knowledge of Airstreams, and for taking the time to give me safe and scenic (and adventurous) directions out of Miami on the maiden voyage with our brand new Airstream, and to Lewster for giving consistently good direction on all things technical.

But, most importantly, thanks to all who contribute here. This forum has been one of my best learning experiences since police academy.
