Skinning Question and Bus for Sale Question

This is a public forum to discuss Eagle related technical issues. If you are having a problem with your Eagle, this is the place to find help.


Hello,
We are new to this site, been around eagles for a while I guess.
We have several Eagles, this post is to find out were I can find
a thread or a area for skinning an Eagle. We have a framed
bus with no sidding on it at all. I have read some things on the internet
about Stretching the metal not a clue.


Also were is a good place to post Eagles for Sale

Thanks,
Tom

Hi Tom and Welcome!

I can't answer the question on skinning as I have never done it. ;)

Post them in the Eagle Mall, Eagle For Sale Members area.

Hey Tom,

Check out this site: http://www.webcove.com/eagle/

This site belongs to Art & Cindy and they have one of the best build sites for Eagles that you will find. They talk about (and show) how they skinned their Eagle with the help of some of their friends. Art's name on the forum is Sunchaser Art. I am sure he will be happy to answer any questions. Many others here have done it themselves too and will offer suggestions. That's one of the great things about this forum - lots of experience and everyone always willing to help out another Eagle owner.

Dale-

You're too flattering. . .I think I learned more how not to do it, which may help someone from making the same mistakes! At any rate, welcome to the group Tom, and if there's anything we can help with, feel free to ask.

Tom, the various forums have many threads on skinning buses. The search feature is your friend :D

Take a look at this thread on our board: http://www.eaglesinternational.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=325&hilit=exterior+skin

Jim

Edit: Wow, I just went through that thread again and there is some really good information about skinning. It is a must read if you plan to do your Eagle.

Clifford is right about Sandy and her daughter at B&B. They did ours and it is hard to find any done better.
