The first question I can neither confirm nor deny

As for the second question, Google Earth apparently now has better image resolution than NASA does.

Google does better than this picture as well when you get closer to the big cities. Out in the country they don't provide the same resolution

What a nice location you have there.

When you've lived in cities and suburbs all your life it's always interesting to see the pictures others post.

Sometimes I see the driveways, the grassy spreads, the barn and structures and more country living and wonder/dream.

I digress, nice spot.

Thanks! It is a nice property. It does require a lot of mowing but it's one of the more peaceful quiet places I've every lived.

Finally (and by that I mean after spending approx 80 hours and numerous broken tools), the bumpers are off the parts donor.



Along with all the original seat mounts, and belts (for both the drivers, passengers and barrel cab seats).



Along with the generator and many other parts.



Next stop is renting a Uhaul to get them all down to Brad's!

Wow!

I was beginning to think those bumpers were never going to come off I hope AS NE didn't charge to much for their "assistance".

I'd say you accomplished everything you really needed to.

Actual AS NE bought the most important thing to the party....the knowledge of the best way to remove the bumpers!

Turns out, the easiest (in my case only) way to remove the countersunk machine screws, is to get behind the bumpers remove the nut then knock the screw out from inside. However to do that you needed to be able to get under the bumper. I couldn't when it was parked (dumped?) out the back of the shop, but the techs had pumped up the tires and temporarily pulled it on to the asphalt using their plow truck....they didn't want to work laying in the dirt!

It sure didn't appear that there was access to the bumper bolts from inside the frame. Hopefully that same approach will work with Peanut. If not I've got my acetylene torch that will work as well

I don't blame them for not wanting to work in the dirt, that's why Peanut is parked on my driveway!

At some point in the past the right front brake line from the brake compensator block to the right front brake hose had been replace. It wasn't routed very well and rubbed on the gas lines to the fuel pump.

A while back I fabricated a replacement brake line to match the one on my Argosy and today I got around to installing it. The picture makes it look like its interfering with the rubber gas lines but in reality it's several inches behind them

Next up was to install the AC compressor. At some point someone had repaired an elongated hole in one of the mounting brackets. Unfortunately they didn't grind it down flat which made it difficult to remove and harder to try and install.

So prior to mounting the compressor on the engine I ground down the offending repair which made it much easier to set the compressor on the mount.

The compressor is now installed. Those A6 style compressors are definitely heavy!

I'm finally done reassembly everything between the front of the engine and the radiator so once the radiator is done it can be installed.

I've mounted an new AC condenser in front of the radiator and am currently working on installing a 16" electric fan to aid in cooling. I'd like to get the fan installed this week so when Martin get's here we can lift the radiator into place. Lifting the radiator and trying to set it in the chassis is not something I want to do by myself

Getting the parts in the trailer is only half the battle. The other half is trying to find a place to put it all once you get here!
