Alaskan Airstream

I have been lurking around for awhile, I finally found a run down 1973 29 ft stream. its in pretty rough shape. I have already gutted it and acquired aluminum, rivets and vlukum. I will start another tread about the build. I would love any help and advice.
thanks mike

Welcome Mike,

Good luck with your resto/reno. Looking forward to your thread and being able to track the progress.

Welcome again,

1st thing is keep your momentum up - have a list and be prepared to skip ahead from any list item requiring parts/tools/materials not on hand. A refurb diary - drawings, photos, master inventory of zip lock bags, boxes and aluminum panel parts sure comes in handy and a place out of the way to stage the production, shattering some obscure plastic piece when you're forced to step over or work around it for the eleventeenth time stings...
