We have a 1963
Bambi. Love the little thing!
My husband did a shell off restoration on ours and it took 10 months. Everything is there and all the original appliances work ~ although he made a few repairs first. We have only been able to take ours out a couple of times (just got it finished...) but it is perfect for the two of us!
My husband has an extensive thread that covers lots of stuff about our Bambi from the new floor to the new axles... and a lot inbetween. Look for 63 Bambi Floor Replacement (or some title such as that...) by NorCal Bambi. Lots of pages, but he has some great pictures that show what he did and why. You might find it helpful when making repairs.
Otherwise use the great search tool located on a blue tool bar, it will help you out with lots of topics. Every question is answered on here somewhere... but if you can't find it.... post a new one! You will get answers!
Be sure and attend an Airstream rally ~ or bunches! The very best part of having an Airstream is the great folks you will meet. Check out the rally link on the blue toolbar to find one near you. You will learn lots about your Airstream and it is a great place to get lots of ideas!
Welcome, and very glad to see another vintage Bambi owner!
