1979 Winnebago Chieftain Complete Gut and Remodel
« on: May 19, 2019, 10:58 AM »
I just joined this site today and have been enjoying the info and stories a great deal. I have been documenting the restoration of my 1979 Winnebago Chieftain (WDN29RT Dodge M500 w/ 440-3) on another site for years. I think I and everyone here will benefit from me including this site in my journey. I will be posting many pics and helpful tips on every system I've touched so far, which is: cooling system, interior gut, roof restoration, complete fuel system replacement/refresh and more!
