In the ARC workshop today the floor of this Airstream is rotten by the doorway – a common problem which is easily solved by ripping out the offending rot and replacing it with brand new phenolic plywood. These pictures show the extent of the rot and the work in progress.

In the workshop today – this 1952 Airstream Cruiser is getting the ARC treatment. The interior is being stripped out, the floor is coming out, the chassis is being painted and then it is being fitted with new insulation and a new floor as we repair it from the ground up. At the moment it is in a very sorry state so do stay tuned to the blog to see how this project progresses, we just love the original features like the door handles and original Airstream badge.
