Looking Goood Buddy , Been wondering where the heck you been, Now I see you have been busy. If I might add a bit of advice fwiw :D On your awning arms go to napa and by a couple of clamps and a peice of rubber hose and clamp those arms in place when your underway . I had that kind of awning and thought that the clamps that came with it would do the job .However going thru wyo once I had a ulgy suprize anyway just a thought LOOKS GREAT ( eating a Elaphant one bite at a time lol

Looks great Van, lot of upgrades in a short time.

Thanks Andy, I know exactly what you mean, and have a close eye on it, so far it is pretty stable @ 65-70 mph and have put strips of velcro wrapped around them, thanks
Julio, I have noticed an increase of power on the flats, on the grades here pretty much the norm for the 6v92 40-45 mph , also have close to 2000mi so far,so good, with the temperatures staying in the 180's which is great. good oil pressure, turbo boost seems to be a bit off I guess, coming in around 10 pounds. Now if only I can land that 100 K job I have been searching for :lol: so I can square off my debts, and maybe look into a total rebuild of the engine, oh well maybe tomorrow... but some day :D , thanks all! ;)

All right Van & Cheryl--you're on a roll now. It's really looking good. . .one day you'll look back at the tape on the floor pictures and be amazed at how far you took it!

Keep up the good work.

Art, you are probably right about that :D , I am still in shock that we actually own an Eagle, and that this dream has become a reality. I think it is only fair to mention, with out the help of some of the club members, we would have been up doo doo creek with out a paddle by now :lol: members such as Dave St John(Dave I haven't forgot ya buddy ;) ) for providing the 692 we have now,which without it, the bus would just be another tin shed in Clifford yard, Clifford, who unselfishly provided a space in which to store the beast as well as the crash coarse on every thing Eagle, which made it possible to patch its broken wings and fly once more . the list goes on, and on and I don't wish to embarrass folk, as most are modest , but you guys are the best! :D all the best! Well time for another bite of the elephants rump LOL, now back to work! :lol: :lol:
