My documentation of the resurrection of a 1966 Airstream trailer

Even though it was in good shape, a few thing needed attention. First thing was to make it watertight. Even though it was the early summer, I knew water would be falling from the sky. First thing was the Phillips window operators and the window gaskets. Rebuilding the window operators was pretty straight forward. Luckily they were all there. It was basically take apart, clean, lubricate and reassemble.
Then I applied some gasket material from Lowes that looked like it would work pretty well. The cross section is in a D shape and is is a solid but soft foam.
