Thanks Lee, your input is greatly appreciated. My parents are currently looking through my grandpa's old pictures because my dad thinks my grandpa used to have one back in the 40's or 50's! I always knew that guy was cool!

Things to look at!

D' Here are some sites I found handy. Vintageairstream (scroll down)is a place to find pics of vintage airstreams and a restoration resource. Airstreamtrailers is also a good resto site. My wife posted these pics of our projects.

Lee, did you keep the plastic bath, or did you replace it? I want to make mine nice on the inside, but plastic doesn't exactly scream quality. I am thinking of putting alum. flashing on bathroom walls and door fronts. Spice it up a bit. I wanted to do copper flashing, but at $3.00 an inch, it seemed a little much.
