1972 Full remodel
My girlfriend(Juliet) and I just bought a 72 off craigslist. We are planning on remodeling it into a full time living airstream. We are both in school, I am studying Emerging Technologies, Juliet is studying nursing. I build props, sets, and prototypes for events, photos, and some commercials/movies, so I have a background of building.
The seller inherited it after his brother-in-law passed. The brother-in-law acquired it and (according to the sellers limited knowledge) put in a new floor, cabinets, electrical, shower, and toilet with some plumbing. I'd love to say he did a fantastic job on it all, but he cut all kinds of corners and we want to check what work we cannot see yet.
Upon our first exterior inspection, we noticed some dents and holes that have been filled with silicon. On the belly there are multiple parts that have been scabbed over and a good bit of rust. I was wondering if I should start first on the belly looking at the frame for places that need to be fixed or if I should start by pulling out the plywood floor that the initial owner recently put in?
