incredible. this is really a NASA contract, right? I am studying your PDFs carefully.

I hoping to have some data on the R-value of the foil insulation (the Prodex kind, not the HD kind) in an aluminum sandwich this weekend. 2333 was kind enough to bring up a few pieces of it this morning.

Hi Zep; Thanks for your sarcastic comments. I am sorry I forgot to tell you that you did not have to read my posts since there is nothing in them that you can learn from. I forgot, you're the best, you are the airstream doctor. Thanks for your encouragment. "Boatdoc"

Not sarcasm! There is a difference between sarcasm and moaning from the depths of utter crushing defeat. I am not worthy to kiss your screwdriver....

Zep, kiss your own dang screwdriver...

Boatdoc, I'll be holding my cyber breath waiting for the end of the project.
I certainly enjoyed #1 and #2. What a craftsman. Stainless, wood, plastics, mild steel, I'm impressed and humbled still more.
Dave

Very nice!

Love the look of it. So, what are you towing with - a customized 73 1/2 Suburban? VERY, VERY nice! How long have you been working on this?

Looking forward to File #3. Come on down to the CBR next month, or up to my Boon docking rally in central NY in June... would love to see this in person!

Rob
