Oh, dear, Keyair - I feel so sorry for you... Being forced to look at that every day, with nothing to do but relax and enjoy life...
Must be horrible! How could she do that to you??? She must really not like you very much.
Or maybe she felt like an "Airstream widow"?

"Oh, crap - there is a strange man in my bed... Who are you???? Oh... right - I've seen you tinker around in the garage - do you live here?"

LOL, we laughed at that too!
She is my biggest Cheerleader, and she cant wait to get the Airstream trip-ready.

We are home again now, but wanted to share the Sunset on the final day...

Yeahyeah....
I have one of those women too...
I, as you probably know, lost out on the opportunity to own that 345, and have been gutting and re-building my 1979 Dodge Sportsman Class-C Mobile Traveler - sometimes working 36-hour shifts, because I just got into a groove - we have to have it DONE and road-ready by 6/24 when we leave for national gathering, never to return to WA - and she has been a real trooper about it.
Of course it has helped that I also bought her a Teepee, so that once we're stationary, we're not confined to a 14' living area, or 21' overall with the cab.
18' Teepee: $536
17, 24' lodgepoles: $310
Shipping of 17, 24' lodgepoles: $200
Making my wife happy: Priceless!

If anyone has the time or inclination to give me a measurement from the lower mounting flange of the STOCK intake manifold to the top of the filter case...
Mine looks like 14"..

Thats awesome Bill, thanks...
Sadly, thats what I calculated based on some creative math measuring from the intake base to a stick bridging the chassis doghouse flange and then measuring the actual doghouse recess...
I was hoping I had made a mistake...

I could always cut a hole in the doghouse and have the Banks filter sticking thru.... It would look cool!

That would work, as long as you don't have a girlfriend, or a dog.

Well at least if there is a hole is the "Dog House", I would not need to open it to be put in it!

You could use a 5 gallon bucket and carpet it
since the dog house is made of abs anyway and if there is a fire you would die

Well, it would be a whole new meaning to the idea of an Airstream Funeral Coach...

We saw one of those 24 footers in California, their vanity plate said, "LST RIDE".
