Just caught up with your thread and I'd like to follow along. It'll help me get my Airstream fix while the snow is falling here in Vermont.

I was listening the the Vintage Airstream Podcast the other day and Colin Hyde was mentioning they always run extra 12v and 120v wires front to back and side to side for future use. I just closed up inner skin over my new wires and didn't do that and was wondering if that was on your list. I'm not sure what I would have done with the ends. May regret it when I need one sometime in the future.

Texas is a huge state. Doesn't surprise to see those temperature extreams, There are a lot of folks who travel from cold Minnesota to warm south Texas during some of the winter weeks to thaw out a bit.

Didnít rain today but everything is wet . Made a patch/mountingplate out of.063 3003 Al . Took a while to cut by hand with snips. Just roughed in , still need to lay out and drill holes for mounting rivets . Also made an 8ga wireing harness . Have polish coming in next week and will polish the new panel and body where it mounts and mount . Also will make sure top of plug is straight with the top of Texas . Onward thru the fog .

Hi: Very nice Texas adornment for your trailer as well as a "stiffener" for the power connection.

I made a similar patch for my old Trade Wind in the shape of my home state of Colorado. Perfectly square. Easy to make. Not very exciting.

Rainy days , yuck !

Some people say I have my head in the clouds , today they are right . Two photos are off my back porch , today you canít even see the mountain because the clouds have it covered up . The other is a normal afternoon .
Enough fusing , RV carport is deep so Iím working in the shop . Laid out holes for my rivets , drilled , chamfered and did a quick polish on Texas . Put some rivets in just to see what finished product will look like . Need to scotch bright to get rid of scratches and snip marks then repolish it. Canít wait to mount after I get the skin polished in that area .

Putting the toaster back together.

Well I insulted two rows and started putting the inside Al. on . Got the first long piece in place before I took a photo . Youíll have to trust me , there is insulation behind it . Got the first three pieces on and riveted up .
I polished a spot on one panel to see if my boss would like it . Nope , we will be sanding enough for paint to adhear to .
Got my Zip Dee awnings in and a shipment of parts I needed . Weather will be nice the next few days and I will polish a few spots to mount some exterior places for some parts . Will make it easier when I get ready to do the polish job latter on . Hope to get antenna, solar panels, awning, and the Texas patch on during nice days . Hope to be painted by mid November if I get some good days . BlueClick image for larger version

Always good to start the assembly process, although you've been at assembly for some time with wiring, plumbing, insulation and the like.

Glad you checked with the boss. You saved yourself a bunch of polishing.

You'll have plenty of nice weather coming up. It's Texas after all. And you're going to have a heck of a nice vintage 67 Overlander when you are done. Dream of the "bend" at Bonneville.

You can show " the boss" our thread if you want to see what a finished interior polish job looks like. My husband was the one pushing for the polished look and I just went along. It was his time and a huge effort I am happy with it but paint would have been just fine by me too lol.

First Zipp Dee

Got the rail area polished for the window Zip Dee awning done and installed. Hard work by yourself . I like the way it came out . Didnít have enough room to spin the ront arm over 15 times . Did manage to do 5 turns with a wrench. When I get the tires on and roll it out Iíll do the last 10 .

Will start the full awning tomorrow as the rail is already installed. May need some help with it as itís heavier.Click image for larger version

The ZipDee awnings will add considerable value to your Overlander, especially a 67 Overlander. I paid plenty extra for the two ZipDee awnings on my 75 Overlander.

Zippy a Dee Do Dah! Shade for the Overlander.

Slow progress

Well Iím still waiting on some sealer tape and some 3M tape to finish off the roof . In the mean time did some more insulation on the inside and ran some conduit under and through frame for electric of the future . Still working on floor plan with the boss . Gave her till Friday so I know where tv is going to run cable. Did take a shot of new awning in closed positions. BlueClick image for larger version

" Still working on floor plan with the boss . Gave her till Friday "

Careful there. As we say in Conifer, you ought not "poke the bear".

You are making good progress even if you don't where to run a TV cable.

Hey, I got an idea: Don't rig the Overlander with a TV at all. TVs are pretty much useless in this day and age. Rig your trailer with a good hot spot and signal booster instead.

Slowly

The old axels har some ribs sticking up . The previous owner put some chromed kidney bean wheels on that didnít fit right . This deformed the wheel and then where the lug nut tighten down even got cracks in the wheel.
Received my new powder coated wheels came in and will buy some new tires at the end of the month.
Got the other Al. on the other side I staled over the new insulation. Sanded with 180 before mounted . All I have to do is rough up the pop rivets before cleaning and paint . Still waiting for a few more parts before I can mount the ceiling and paint .

Holly cow! Your trailer was heading for a major catastrophic event with the miss-match of bolt circles between wheel and hub. Cracks are not a good thing. New axles and new wheels will solve that problem.

Keep on hanging aluminum inside where you can. I was looking at a painted vintage Airstream interior the other day in the Classified section here on Air Forums. It looked really nice. I left the laminated vinyl on my Overlander, even the printed stuff in the bathroom. My project did not involve a gut job and skin removal.
