Old at Heart,
Welcome to the forum. There is a thread called "Vintage RV's" and your rig qualifies for that designation. Would love to see before and after pictures of your rig if you wouldn't mind posting your remodel there.
There are a lot of guys there who have redone their rigs and are redoing them. Might get some good info too from them, they come in and make suggestions and talk you through things to help you.
These old beauties are often amazing and when you redo them you have a very special rig.
Best of luck hope to see you on Vintage! Lynne
