Let There be HEAT!

By admin

I work on Edmundston all winter long, and it gets pretty cold on the shore of Lake Ontario. I was able to get a furnace blower from Brendan Frisina when he put a new furnace in his house, so I put this in the duct work of Edmundston. We have air flow once again in Edmundston in a long time. The heat generated at the A end of the car will now be distributed through the car's duct work .... works amazing.

By admin

Today was a good day. I test fit my imagineering out flow for the toilets. I was able to fit new ABS drain pipe to the brass/copper original pipe through the original poop chute hole with a bit of modification.

This is what the closed system will look like for the two toilets in Bedrooms B and C. The space is quite small and under the car over your head even smaller. Here are some pictures - Chris Fox
