Re: New 64 Stepper Project

The cost would not surprise me to be close if not over $10k

Would you mind sharing the part numbers from SMS for those two fabrics?

Keep up the great work!
Sorry for the delay I've been away from home for a couple months working.

Re: New 64 Stepper Project

I installed the AC unit I'm using onto the firewall using a 'weld mount' system keeping the firewall clean on the engine side. Wired in the control panel and the unit fan motor. I'm going to remove it to insulate and get ready to carpet. Be a while again as I have to go out of town to work to pay for it.

Re: New 64 Stepper Project

Nice job, looks great. What air/cond unit is that? I like it. Everybody says vintage air but i don't like the blower fan looking at you.

Re: New 64 Stepper Project

They always say 'just six months' but it's always 8 to 12. Can't even touch the money though, so I go - and row well.
Once you get overseas though, I may be gone until I retire in like five years. Last time I did two 18 month jobs back to back.

Re: New 64 Stepper Project

I don't blame you. A guy has to take advantage of those good opportunities when they come along.

Stay safe and stop in from time to time and say Hi.

Well now they're saying it "may" be in Mindanao - hint: If so that's a 'no-go' for me.

Re: New 64 Stepper Project

Travel Advisory: "The whole of the far south is a no-go zone: the areas of Mindanao, the Sulu Archipelago, and the Zamboanga Peninsula are all considered extremely dangerous and travelers are advised to stay away. The terrorist group Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) has been blamed for numerous violent incidents, kidnappings, and frequent clashes with the Filipino security forces

Spin-off terrorist groups, including the Abu Sayyaf Group and JemaĎah Islamiyah, have broken away from MILF, and are particularly dangerous. They are responsible for bombings which have resulted in property damage, injury and death. The more rural areas of the country, including the island of Luzon to the north, should be avoided as it has seen the increased presence of the terrorist organization, The New PeopleĎs Army (NPA).

Over the past few years, terrorist acts, involving explosive devices in North Cotabato Province, Basilan, Isabela City, Jolo, Cotabato City, Makati and the Zamboanga airport, have resulted in 41 deaths, and severe injury to well over 100 more. Most of the bombings took place on public transportation, and in crowded locations including restaurants and cathedrals.

The unpredictability of terrorist acts makes them much more dangerous, so steer clear of the locations where they are more likely to occur."

Re: New 64 Stepper Project

Yeah, I'd say stay far, far, far away from that area. I had no idea such activity occurs in that area. You don't hear anything about it on any news source I pay attention to. Now I know there is more than one meaning for MILF.......
