In the workshop today – this Airstream Caravel has come in for some repairs. It has a dented roof so Will is fitting a restored panel and then we’ll be buffing the whole trailer to a mirror shine. It’s very sunny down here in Somerset today so he has to keep his sunglasses on!

Airstream Delivery

by ARC on May 24, 2012

Here’s the Lava Lamp Airstream being delivered to it’s new home in North Oxford on Monday. This Airstream is going to remain in the garden as a spare room and place to entertain guests, rather than going on tour. Unfortunately there is no access to the back garden from the road so it had to be lifted into the garden by an enormous crane. A big crowd of people turned up to watch and it was also filmed by a TV Crew for a new TV series on Micro Design which will be aired on Channel 4 in the spring! Here’s some photos of it going in:

In the workshop today: the Whale Tail is coming on!

1 May 2012

Here are some photos of a vintage 1950′s Whale Tail Airstream that we are working on. Teak wood veneers and a mint green 50′s Smeg oven really work well in this retro feel Airstream. The client wanted us to use vintage parts where ever possible so we have fitted original hinges and catches.
