More Light

Another find for missing light shades.

I'm excited for the potential of the Airstream and am really happy to find another part for the restoration. It just seems a bit odd to be buying so many interior details when we need to get a new floor, electrical system, and plumbing. Seems like arranging flowers while the foundation is caving in... fortunately we have a stong frame and I am going to keep believing that until Colin opens up the floor.

In Collections...

We seem to be in the collection stage of our Airstream restoration. This is a match to the pitted light over the door.
Work on our Flying Cloud has stopped, while Colin works on another trailer, Vintage Thunder. And believe it or not - I am glad to be delayed, as we will still be able to camp, caravan, and rally this year. Vintage Thunder's owner is without any trailer during the upgrade, and it only seems right that everyone be able to travel this summer. Still I'm excited for our turn!
