he told me you called him. He got over a hundred emails and couldn't keep track of anything. Now I have opened myself up to a whole new search for used parts!

Price was about break even for us as parts, but it was a killer deal for someone to use as a driver. No problem putting miles on that one.

Closing up a big container order this weekend if you can think of anything big you need in the near future. Bring it by if you want help going though it. We are in Portland today/tomorrow and then back in the shop with a couple projects for most of November-December.

Bill - Thanks

Jeff - Used the tool, put a nice scratch in the roof when it slipped out of the slot trying to round the corner

Charles - Not sure. No real timeline just taking my time trying to do a good job. getting parts has been the big issue if I had all of the parts it would have been done log ago.

That is just the ferry listing to the left in the very strong tides we get in the Puget Sound... Makes for fun commutes.

Assuming the aforementioned tool is for the Alpine's?!? Is this home made or purchase from a supplier? I need to change out my seals...can't stop the dry rot...

Was this a crazy deal or something? Am I blind or does it not have front seats?

I don't think the photos I post from my iphone have orientation problems. I think it's a problem with use, not the product itself.

Oh. I see. The issue is that I don't orient the photo after the fact. I do it when I take the pictures. When you turn the phone on its side, the camera app rotates and save a photo landscape. If you have the aspect lock turned on or of the phone doesn't notice that you tilted it to the side, you'll end up with a photo 90° out.

I posted a couple of photos here of what the camera app looks like (on ios7) when you turn the phone on it's side. Notice the text on the top, or side of the camera app:

The bolts were definitely too long and the holes were full of muck so had to cut new threads and put in new, shorter bolts.

I have the plastic bezels they are in the basement. The grill light surrounds bumper/brush guard/winch are the last things I'm putting on it.
