Welcome and congrats on your Airstream!

Hubby restored our 1963 Bambi a couple years ago and had a lot of fun doing it! He is now working on our 1955 Flying Cloud. He has quite a few "how-to's" on this thread with pictures, etc. Some might be useful to you eventually: (it is a long thread and you have to scroll through a lot, but the pictures help!)

Looking for parts? Some you will have to find on ebay, by luck, here on the forum classifieds, and others you can find at:

Vintage Trailer Supply - Vintage travel trailer parts and supplies!
Airstream Innovations at Inland RV Center, Inc. (951) 734-8130

You can also find interesting photos and floor plans to get information at:
Vintage Airstream Photo Archives

Good luck! Post some pics, we love pictures here!
