Wait one and I'll see.  I THINK this one should be big enough to hold everything.  In all reality, having additional boxes fitted wouldn't hurt anyhow since this one basically has NO loose stowage capacity at all. 

To be fair, we mostly spent the weekend working on Staggs Mercedes which is DAMN nice now.  Just happened across the perfect fan while we were out which led us down the usual rabbit hole again and had us up till 10:30 at night banging on the shelter and screwing with stuff. 

I thought I was going to get more rest this week with Curfman off at DDAP....

Tying up loose ends on this guys preparing for it's transfer back to Bretts place. 


Volts DC readout added.  Again, like with the Kill a Watt it's tucked back out of sight for the most part but obvious if you are on duty at the desk. 


Curfman and Hoober got the second battery eliminator put together. 


Added in the electrics and hit it with a coat of paint.  Today after work, I'll stick it all together and install it in the shelter. 

Trucker is headed up this weekend to get it picked up and moved back to Brett's pretty much winding up this project. 

Looking at the first post where I have been tracking expenses it looks like the total cost of the overhaul comes in at $356 to go from this:



To what we have here today.   You guys who are looking for projects to do, read through all of what we did on this thread here, it was not complex work and none of it really required any specialist skills.  Projects like this are quite affordable to do and make a HUGE difference to how smoothly the event runs in the field.

When you see something like this come up and you want to try your hand at something speak up, it's a hell of a lot of fun to do and gives you a way to "play East Wind" all year.   Vehicles get all the attention when it comes to overhauls but they pale in usefulness to something like this.

I have a trip down to Festus/Desoto at the end of August. If it isn't moved before then, we'll work it out for me to haul it if possible. (Depends on the details of the trip.)
