Yuki,

I searched and couldn't find replacement rubber isolators for the radiator so I ended up cobbling some together. You can see what I did in post #92 of my thread.

Hi Brad,
Thank you for the information.

I saw your thread, your fabrication is awesome!
That gave me ideas how to make it.
But I don't have a lathe...

I'll try to make similar ones without a lathe. I'm looking for some washers, spacers and piece of rubber over here now.

I follow steadily what you done

Yaki!! its RivetenRosie aka Jami ! I have a thread on here, but it needs updating!

Is your Argosy really Green?? Does it have a name yet? Where did you find it?
I've been looking for 3 years for a 20' !

YES, Brad knows EVERYTHING about our MH's!
I met him on my way home to Boston from picking Rosie up in Louisiana- basically risking our lives we got lost in the rain-had 1 wiper, dim headlights, and no heat.. but i was determined to meet the master, his unnamed 74 and peanut- He's a great guy too, he kept me sane during that sleepless road trip.. thank g*d..

Hi jamimes,
Thanks for the message to here and IG.
I've seen your thread already.

Yeah, my Argosy is green, but it has been fading their color day by day. Unfortunately it doesn't have a name yet.

I found the Argosy in Japan.
I think it's very rare over here. Of course other motorhomes are rare too. I've seen another 20' just once before.

Wow! Did you meet him? I'm jealous of you!
YES, he knows all of things what we need.
I'm being helped by him every time.

Hi Rollinstone,
Thank you for the message.
That's nice. Are you coming to Japan for sightseeing?
I'm living not too far from Tokyo, but not close.
Probably my Argosy wouldn't be complete by next March...

Today, I went to pick up new cool stuffs at Narita airport cargo terminal.
It came from Summit Racing. I usually use door-to-door delivery that include import duty when I bought parts from oversea.
But this time freights are big so I decided to use air cargo, because it could reduce the freight cost.
But it needs to do customs procedures myself... I've never done it before.
I seem to be an importer!

I bought exhaust parts this time. (headers, mufflers, cats and clamps)

I talk about headers, we call it "Tako-ashi" in Japan.
"tako" meant an octopus, "ashi" is legs.
Because it looks like octopus' legs.
