Well done mate. Are you planning on EXPO'ing it with RTT and fridges and batteries and stuff?

Nah, just using it to haul gear for the time being...I was set on the RTT setup, but then realized if the wife/kid/dogs ever go that may not be a feasible option. So may go with a jumbo Coleman quick tent for now and an RTT later (but I'd need to do some brackets/etc to setup the RTT on).

If I had a pickup I wouldn't need the extra space! Though I do want to put it behind the 90 ultimately is what it'll be used for anyhow. Though gotta figure out how to go from a 4-flat on the 90 to the UK wiring on the trailer...

Pull all the wiring on the trailer plus lights and go with new wiring and LED lights. IMO it is all better and if you don't care about keeping it original then you will be better off in the long run mate.

Jason...if you want click here for some links to the parts catalogs for the Sankey. Not sure what gen yours is, but hopefully this will be useful.

Windmill help this W/E?

I have to get this darn windmill up and running over at my place on the Eastern Shore cz it is taking up too much valuable barn real estate. It is for pumping air into the WSP pond to help up the water quality and promote healthy growth of all the wee critters that live there. I probably could do it all myself but I would be spending half my time figuring out ways to hold things in place and bracing stuff for assembly and all kinds of stuff like that when all I really need is a helper.
I have all the tools, the materials, the windmill, everything to get it going except the actual staff of assistants. I promise copious food, beer, kayaking, wrenching, etc as well as overnight accomodations. However there is no computer there (yay)
If you can help, let me know. Thanks.

Windmill FAIL

Well, never send a Motion Graphics person to do an engineering job.
Everything was going well with the windmill raising until it was about 12 or so feet up off the ground when the support pole failed. Fortunately nobody on the ground was killed or injured. The project is, how they say, back to the drawing board....

Glad to see that no one got hurt.

Who "engineered" the support pole?

I'm in. Bringing parts for Bill & Pedro among others.
Will there be a rep from the George family there?

No VSS here...mine is starting to get wonky too. Irritating.
