Well it seems like we wait until the weather is scorching before we get back to work on the Airstream, but tomorrow should be the first day back in a long time. The weather really did have a lot to do with that! It has been too good or too bad for awhile now in North Texas.

I did start uncovering the inside skins from their storage spot today, and dove back into the Jasco to finally finish getting the stubbornest slivers of vinyl-clad off the skins. The thing about these last shards of the old vinyl-clad is they are the toughest ones – usually under the pressure of a skin overlap – and require multiple coats of Jasco to get them to let loose.

The Airstream is on a hard deadline now, because I basically committed it to being somewhere else this winter … like Broken Bow, Oklahoma, or the Guadalupe River area of Texas. Heck, why limit it when it comes to getting out and away?

I do this thing on the Texas Fly Caster website called the “Monday Morning Sidewalk,” which is basically a review of the last week and what’s coming up ahead on the topic of fly fishing in Texas. If you are interested in fly fishing, be sure to catch the Monday Morning Sidewalk every Monday.

The next few weeks of Airstream work will be interesting, so I will be sure and have some photography to show you what’s going on. Now that the Airstream is outed on the Texas Fly Caster website, I guess there’ll be some crossover to the Texas Fly Caster site from here on out.

Removing Vinyl Clad From an Airstream Trailer Interior Aluminum

I went ahead and rushed out this video, so readers can have something to entertain them while I am fly fishing this weekend in Oklahoma. Enjoy the video on removing vinyl clad and let me know if I there’s a better or easier way. It’s been trial by error when it comes to a lot of things during a total full monty restoration of an Airstream trailer.
