vaughan,
Repaired my old one a number of years ago. The extender would not retract the arms (monofiliment tends to break)and parts are nolonger available. Needing to replace, did not know if new models are better for a digital signal.

For those who want to keep their brackets and replace only the horns, Wolo makes a "Model 120 Persuader Xtreme" that bolts on with little modification.

If I were replacing one, I think I would take a look at the Jack antennas: http://www.airforums.com/forums/f450...nna-73890.html

There have been good reports on them. I think there are some other threads about them, too.

Steering wheel...

That is a beautiful steering wheel, nice job!

I would like to leather wrap my 16" wheel.

Yes!

After thinking and thinking about this (AND the money being available) I finally broke down last week and this past weekend and bought some stuff I've been dreaming of owning.
Thanks to Steve (KeyAir) for his sage advice on the Zemco!
Now, I've got to get stuff done on the inside of the Airstream, start finding my power problems and get this beast back on the road!
Thanks, Derek

I feel like some kind of "dealer" Derek... LOL!

Here is my fixs for today...

Rivet shaver...


24' of SS flexible Earls hose and 8 hose fittings and silicon hose ends.
Plan to use it to plumb the Aux heater to negate any chance of coolant leaks inside the MH...



LED strip connectors..

More like "pusher"

I've got the same rivet shaver. This summer I'm hoping I have a ton of rivets to shave!

Given a choice... I'd rather be a "Diesel Pusher"! Brad...

Also, at parties, telling people that I plan to shave my own rivets has some interesting reactions.....

You will love that rivet shaver after you fine tune the adjustment. I used it on thousands on Olympics. Here is a picture set I posted a long time ago, but it was lost due some unknown issues.

the rest of the series and some interesting Airforum history:
The image of that shaved rivet in the picture of this set is the very rivet that was used next to your name and as a reward for posting, I.e 5 rivets and the title rivet master...
