I an't believe I did that.

Yes David ...I will let you know if I can generate some interest in our own Texas Restoration (hands on) Rally.

I spent about three hours chasing down an electrical problem in the Bubble. Got it all wired and plugged her in. Some small (I hope) problems with the water pump operating light and one LED overhead light. But....the Bed would not operate. Hours of chasing circuits and checking connections. I finally gave up and came in about 7:00 O'clock. Then over a medicinal Turkey Sandwich I realized that I had forgotten to put a fuse in the linear operator location in the fuse box. DUMB!

Sink

Hi Ted....wondered where you have been...out enjoying the Bubble I hope....aside from the Volvo work. Here is one more of the sink as I leak checked it after resealing and testing it. It is from a WW2 Submarine. When I saw it I immediately had something in mind for it...and then the Bubble came along. Better pics this week. I finished up tonight and only took a few snaps..

that's really cool. when my ipad updated to the new ios it must have not sent any of my subscription notices from airforums. It must have booted me out and i wasn't logged in. i thought everyone was just being lazy or done with their projects! nice to ketch up with you. what do you think your bubble's gonna weigh in at completion? you've got some well thought out elements in there. cheers--ted
