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!) http://www.airforums.com/forums/f36/...mbi-17925.html
