1982 Airstream 310 Exhibit "A"


From Internet Advertisement 10/2001 before T.L.C.

From owner on 12/29/01:
"1982 Airstream 310
GM chassis Chevrolet 454 engine original 74,900 miles.

Inside Work:
Couch and chairs in front redone. Driver and passenger seats are leather and look good. Toilet didn't work, so was replaced with new one. Carpet cleaned with a Shaklee product -- Basic I. The carpet looked pretty nasty. We thought about replacing it if cleaning didn't work, but was I surprised -- it looks great, even the whole coach smells better! Walls and all other surfaces were sticky so I started with 409, but soon tired of scrubbing for the third time. I used some more Basic I and as soon as I would spray it on, the sticky feeling was gone. The previous owners had put window tint on the front windshield, driver and passenger windows. It looked nasty and odd so I removed it. It took only nine hours with a razorblade and mineral-spirits to remove and looks much cleaner now.

Engine Work:
Exhaust manifolds redone. Oil change, tune-up, transmission and brakes checked, all work fine. Replaced front air spring bags yesterday. Generator, installed new air filter, new plugs and had oil changed."
