Even Santa makes mistakes...I hear from a good source that Santa shipped me 4 sets of baby moon hubcaps...that's right, 4 SETS...

It seems that the description on Amazon only sez Baby Moon HUBCAP...so 4 got ordered...(BTW, Amazon is low on stock of 10.125 ID Baby Moon hubcaps at this time )

I guess you could always buy 3 more AS trailers needing hubcaps.

A new stereo and subwoofer. Photos attached.

The stereo is a JVC KD-AHD79, iPhone compatible with two more aux inputs, one on the front and another on the back. Sound from the TV will go to the rear aux input. Also has a remote and a built-in HD radio tuner. Got it from Crutchfield.

The subwoofer is a polkaudio DB1040DVC 10" Subwoofer. I got it from Amazon. I will drive it with a Sansui SM-1500 amp that I already have.

I will have to build a box for the subwoofer and a new mounting panel for the stereo to replace the radio and separate cassette deck that came in the Excella. The JVC head will go in the top of the area where the former radio was, and the subwoofer enclosure will fill the space below. The box will be a little on the small side for a 10" subwoofer, but that's all the room I have. It'll be close enough.

This will be a project for the next couple of weeks. The University of Arkansas at Little Rock, where I work, closes for two weeks for Christmas and New Year's starting Tuesday. I'll have time to work on this then.

I'm getting new panels for the Bambi! No more dimples or the big dent I gave her last spring. Santa has a satellite workshop in OKC (Griffith AS) and a very nice elf (Joe from Air Midwest) who sent the pictures. She's looking good!

Ohhh, Ahhh!!! Looks great.

I'm jealous. Those three panels on my Excella look terrible. On my "Someday" list.

A nice shiny camera, to replace the one failed in spectacular fashion in Macon last summer (that seems a long time ago). Expect lots of Airstream photos!
