Aerowood and Zep would both be on it, if it actually existed... We have a lot of talented writers on the air forums site, I am sure one day someone will put a thread like that together.

Awning rail shot back on wet. Decreased spacing to around 2" from the 8" to 10" spacing. Click image for larger version

Question, is the decreased rivet spacing on the awning rail due to increasing the strength of the rail for the awningís sake? Or, due to water dripping between the rail and skin with wider spaced rivets? Iíll be replacing a rail on a friendís 63 Bambi. Iíll caulk above the rail, but donít want water dripping through. Do you use butyl behind the rail? Thanks

I decreased the spacing to keep water from running under the rail. I used Pro Seal 1440 B2 aircraft fuel tank sealant between the rail and the skin

I am going to put a ZipDee awning on but I'm missing the lower portion of the aft frame where the aft awning arm is installed. The battery box was previously located here and Airstream used either a meat clever or a hand axe to cut the lower portion out, not sure which. Any how I started to make the lower parts of that frame today.

Work bench is a disaster, can you identify the tools?Click image for larger version

Let's see: tape measure, metal shears, air powered rivet gun, cup wire brush, slotted screw driver, machinists square, various air tools, flap wheel, air blow nozzle, cut off wheel, hammer, compass, various vise grip style clamps, putty knife,

No meat cleavers or hand axe that I can see. I didn't find Waldo either.

Two new short ribs made and ready to install. They will be installed forward and aft of the right wheel well. I did the left side quite some time ago. I also picked up some .063 6061-T6 for some more ribs that I removed on the corner segments. I had to remove them in order to replace the corners with flat sheet.Click image for larger version
