If you are in the middle of or are contemplating a full bore shell off restoration, consider printing these pictures and placing them somewhere prominent. Perhaps a daily reminder of the powerful nature of the Airstream itself in all its naked and lonely glory will push you through the dark times that will come...
Was randomly browsing the classifieds (because 3 vintage trailers isn't enough) and ran across this post by one post member "a-ok"
What struck me were these pictures (attached below). Apparently he threw in the towel on this resto and is selling the shell. While he may not be able to restore an old airstream, due to whatever circumstances, he can certainly make a good picture. Also, I'm assuming he's male... could be a goat for all I know.
I find them very indicative of the daunting and lonely nature of a full restoration. Also a very powerful couple of images in and of themselves.
Good job a-ok...
