In the ARC workshop today: This fabulous golden cocktail bar is under construction in the Dubai Airstream – one of our luxury Airstream refit projects which is being shipped out to Dubai once it is completed.
The bar was decorated by our new upholsterer, Chris Burns. Chris renovates VW campers and will be joining ARC soon – so we will become even more of a hub for all things retro! You can also see in this picture that this Airstream is being fitted with one of our classic ‘starry sky’ lighting designs with twinkling, colour-changing LEDS set into the ceiling.
Meanwhile one of our early projects, the Weber Barbecue Airstream has come back to the workshop for a service and buff and polish ready to hit the road again this summer as it tours the UK demonstrating the delights of Weber barbecues. You can see more pictures of this Airstream project on our website gallery page and blog.
The temperature in the UK has certainly taken a dip in the last week or so but here in the ARC workshop some members of the team are keeping warm by polishing these Airstreams. It’s a tough job that requires a lot of repetition and elbow grease – but the results are certainly stunning!
In the ARC workshop today, we are working on lot of different projects.
