First of all... Thanks for all of the folks that emailed me checking up on my progress. Yes, I am still here!!
I have been working hard on the interior of my house, doing the finish work. bamboo floors complete master bedroom / living room / Computer Room (Simulator), tile floors complete through kitchen, dining, and family room, finishing up base boards. painting complete in living room. Carpet removed from east wing hallway and daughter #1 room. Still have a bunch to do.
I am also re-configuring my simulator with a 27" forward facing LCD, (2) 19" LCD's offset 45 degrees for side views. Should make the students happy.
I did manage to fabricate the vent line and flare the end for the AN fitting, installed end rib to test final fit. I would haope to be able to put more time into the build as I finish the ten other projects I am working on.... eecchhh!!!
