Helpful repair information.
Hello, I'm a new member to this community. I own a 1977 27' Overlander and it has been not only a pleasure reading through the threads but I find it quite helpful to see all of the work accomplished by many passionate owners. Here is something I want to share on this. I'm an aircraft sheet metal technician and this is one of the many reason why a chose to own an AS. Here is some information that I hope helps on the repairs of this amazing hobby. Please read on and enjoy the information below.

While the AS is not an aircraft it certainly is made almost like one.
