My parents called me one evening and told me that a small Airstream was for sale just down the road from them. They asked if I wanted it. I said I was certainly interested and would call them back after talking it over with my wife. The next day my mother called and asked, "Well do you want this thing or not?!" I told her we did. I called the owner and told him I would take it. I agreed to pay his asking price and he agreed to tow it 1,000 miles north for me to pick up.

Renovation Going Slowly

Posted 05-29-2010 at 01:06 PM by dickmfield

Having removed the carpet and much of the "mouse fur" from the walls in the dining/living area, I fried a few brain cells removing the glue backing with a solvent. Then, I began polishing the interior aluminum with mixed results. Have to get some more aggressive Nuvite polishing cream to work on the roughest areas but getting there slowly. Here's a progress photo.[/B]
