Thanks Sheri,

Those little things help. I saw a special on the History Channel about Dassault Falcon Jet. When they did their first mock up, they only put a wing on the side they were going to photograph. In the pictures there was no shadow on the other side. They had to put a cardboard “wing” on the other side for the shadow.

On another note, Falcon Jet has become a major player in the Bisjet field. Their facility in Little Rock employs over 1,500, and is Dassault’s largest facility worldwide. They install interiors and do final finishing in LR.

That's great, Vaughan! How funny!

Do you turn it backwards while you are pulling the trailer????

Rivet Popper Etiquette

Unless you are wearing a welding hood or catcher’s gear, it is never correct to turn it backwards. Just as it is never correct to wear a hat indoors. For this reason, Bum Phillips never wore a hat inside the Astrodome. I back everywhere.

I keep the hail dent on mine for the follwoing reasons:
1) They are really aerodynamicly placed racing dents that help the rig to faster. Like a golf ball.

2) They are like little, deflecting satelite dishes so Im invisible to both state trooper and alien radar.

3) Increased surface area means better heat dissapation on hot nights.

4) Makes the trailer identifiable when running in a herd, like spots on a girrafe or leopard.

I have tons of hail damage. Haven't filed insurance claim yet -- it's too depressing. I suspect that Lucy is totaled.

Lucy has been repaired and is awaiting being picked up. So I can't comment on the work -- yet. I expect to go out to get her next week.
