Hello! I am not too familiar with blogging and could not figure out how to email you two (hopefully you will receive this comment). We (Dave and Carye) ran into you at devils tower with our '66 tradewind. How nice to see our photos on your blog! A couple of weeks later we were driving into yellowstone and caught a glimpse of your airstream at mammoth campground--knew it was you with the black AC shroud and the solar panels, but the turquoise accents when we got closer made us sure. Left a "hello" note on your door ;) We stayed in a smaller campground then canyon campground and snow in June! Looks like you two (or four) have been having a wonderful time and your photography is just beautiful. Our friends have a '66 safari and we all went to a combination old time fiddlers festival and vintage airstream rally last weekend in livingston. All had a good time. Our friends are 75% done with polishing their airstream (we may NEVER be done!) and she started talking about turqoise paint for the wheel rims after we saw some other nice vintage campers. I said she had to check out your accent paint job because it almost has a shimmer/glitter quality to it. Would you share the paint color with her? Or is it top secret ?!?From skimming your blog it sounds like all systems are go and you did a great job with your remodel. Blown out tires don't count ;)Safe travels,Carye firstname.lastname@example.org
Hey Carye! I am so glad you found us online! Yes, we got your note but didn't weren't able to go through the campgrounds you said you might be in. I hope you enjoyed Yellowstone as much as we did! The paint we used was out of an ancient color catalog book from the 70's that was at the auto store. I think it was from a 1963 Cadillac. Originally it came out too blue, so they added a few drops of green. I don't have an exact color, but your friend could try Napa Auto and maybe they can find the same color.
What did you use for the metal skin on the inside? aluminum or stainless steel?
We used aluminum.
Thank You. My wife and I are working on a 72 Safari, We love what you did with yours.
How wonderful! Do you have a blog or anything where we can see pictures?
I would love too. I'm not sure how to set it up. I'll try and get back to you
I really like the way you used a syringe to apply caulk. Check out finishlinecaulk.com to see a clean and easy way to fill syringes. Save caulk, time and the mess with Finish Line Caulk Tools.
