Starting my resto journey

So... Just like everyone else, I saw an airstream remodel as a nice easy journey, and went and found a complete one that just needed a little work for a"song ". $4250 later, i was the proud new owner of a 27' Overlander. I figured a little floor repair was no big deal, heck, I replaced the wood deck on one of my old car trailers in s couple hours, how hard could this be?! Hahaha! Now, several months later after sitting in my driveway just looking pretty, I'm finally getting started on the sagging rear bath floor. All I can say is, HOLY RIVETS! Ive spent the better part of the day getting ONE SIDE of my bathroom rivets and screws removed. I now no longer like my airstream hahaha. I'll throw pictures up later tonight when I get to a stopping point. It's kinda hard doing it from my phone.

The demo was the fun part for me. Good luck with your project!
