RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

You can use a steam box to soften the wood in order to bend it, I have used that many times to bend wood, household plywood does not work it disintegrates the glue is water based but marine plywood does work the glue is not water based. navegator

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

I know exactly what you are doing, it is a reverse pattern and the fiberglass goes on the outside of the box. What I am referring to is making the bottom of the sink with rounded corners and the four corners radiused so that there are no 90° areas, also give the bottom a slope towards the drain hole, we have a deep sink in the kitchen with the drain hole in the far right corner and sloped, no water remains in the sink. navegator

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

I would recommend rounding the bottom corners also, square corners are hard to clean. Look into the west system for doing the fiberglass and epoxy, I used it many times when installing navigation instruments on very expensive yachts. navegator

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

One of my tool-boxes has a lever at the back that locks the drawers via a bar with cut outs on that grab the drawers and prevent them being opened, maybe you can do something like that. navegator

RE: 2002 E350 Dog House. Any smaller ones without front section

I placed the square tubes on top of the frame that hold the sliding chair mechanism and drilled the tubes so that both seats were 4 inches back from the original, bolting the whole thing is an exercise in patience, since I am long legged it helped me a lot and wife can get up to get goodies from the galley, you can drill new holes on the floor but you need to be very careful where you do that, also if you drill new holes make Shure that you place backing plates under the floor with washers, be aware that there are wiring sensors that pass trough the floor for the seat belt sensors and air bags and on the drivers side there are fuel lines, that is why I chose to raise the seats and gain leg space with the square metal tubes on top of the original seat frames , the tubers need to be thick and strong. navegator

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

How do you plan on keeping the drawers closed when traveling? We had the pantry door open on a very tight left uphill turn and the contents go flying out, after that I installed the drywall corner L strips and drilled holes to accept bungee cords, they are on for travelling and one side off for camping, all the drawers on ower unit need to lift up to open. navegator

RE: 2002 E350 Dog House. Any smaller ones without front section

My 2001 came with the single cup holder, I purchased the bigger one from Ford and installed 4 inch square steel tubes to raise the seats and got the passenger side moved 4 inches back, this gives required space between the seat and the dog house, I also installed a hand hold on the dash for coveniance and stability of the passenger, wife liked it so did the cat. The reason for lifting the seats is simple, I have a compressed vertebra and low car seats hurt my back. navegator

RE: Living in Mexico on a tourist Visa. Legal or Illegal?

It was only time until the technology caught up with all off us, I used to enter by Reynosa and exit by Reynosa, go up to my brothers in San Antonio for a week and re-enter by Nuevo Laredo and exit by Nuevo Laredo, and back by Reynosa and never had a problem and was never questioned, wait until the Mexican Immigration system has access to HSI system of cameras that take a photo of the license plate and driver going out and entering, Canada has access to this system, things will get interesting. So all of you do not worry, if the old regimes come back in a few years we will be back to the old graft and corruption and business as usual. No hay nada de que preocuparse unos cuantos refrescos (money) lo arreglan todo navegator

If you are worried about the lack of the toe kick space you can always purchase a pair of Red Wing shoes with steel toes, problem solved! LOL! navegator

RE: Electricty and RFI ib body

Maybe you can build a small anechiodal chamber around her bed, made with mosquito wire net not plastic, it needs to be metal to shield her from any RF signal, basically a room made with wire with a door around the bed. navegator

RE: Telecommunications Reform (Cell Phone Service/Biometric Data

If this is implemented it will definitely be a disaster, it is hard enough to maintain the basic information off the hands of the "real" crooks and now we must surrender even more info? I will not do it, some officials in the Mexican government can not be trusted at all, they sell themselves to the highest bidder, over and over worst than the "cosa nostra", I guess I will keep the land line and my US phone thank you! navegator

RE: Turbo goes out at 37,000 miles

I got in the internet and found 2 sites that are worth looking into, the first one is really good in explaining the different pumps and their pitfalls really worth reading, the second one is good to. Hope this helps a little www.rbracing-rsr,com/oilsystems.htm www.team-bhp.com/tech-stuff/idling-rule-turbo navegator

RE: Turbo goes out at 37,000 miles

One item that kills a turbo really fast is driving down the interstate at full speed and getting off to get fuel, coming in to the gas station and shutting down the engine. This simple little action is detrimental to the life of the turbo, while the engine is running the oil is circulating to the turbo and lubricating the bearings and cooling, shutting the engine down shuts the flow of oil, this oil not only helps lubricate the bearings it also helps with cooling the unit. When the flow of oil is interrupted the residual oil begins to cook and slowly starts to block the passages and also starts to destroy the bearings. Depending on the turbo, it will spin at about 17,000 RPM at idle and anywhere up to 150,000 RPM's running down the road. Try to avoid this by letting the engine idle 2 to 3 minutes or more before shutting down, this helps the turbo slow down to near idle speeds and helps cool the unit a bit, this prolongs the life of the turbo. I do not know if they still manufacture them or not, it is an electric motor 12vdc and a pump coupled with a timer that runs for about 3 minutes at engine shut down and pumps oil to the turbo after the engine is shut down, totally separate from the engine, runs from the engine sump to the oil line for the turbo, the oil then drains to the engine pan this helps cool down the hot end of the turbo while it spools down and prolongs it's life. navegator

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

I prefer the Mississippi mud beer! But I will take jour word for it. that calculation gives me a headache, congrats on the anniversary, you do not know what you have until they are gone, so treasure her forever. My dad told me that one plus one equaled two, but if I was not careful it would be three. navegator

RE: 10 Tips for ATM safety in Mexico

I have direct deposit to my Citibank checking account in the USA, since I am a retiree I do not get charged a fee for this, then I transfer funds from Citibank USA to my CitiBanamex account and do not pay fees for the transaction, before I had the Mexican account I would withdraw money from the ATM at the CitiBanamex bank not the kiosk at Walmart or Costco machines to exposed and to easy to be mugged. All the withdrawals with the US card were originally charged a fee that was later reimbursed so maybe those of you that can use Citibank might want to consider that option, the video is interesting and good to know. Stay safe out there ya all navegator

RE: Shower size

Be careful with the overall measures given in the brochures, my C class was advertised as a 22 footer in the original production, I purchased one of the last produced units, the original model was a couple inches over 22 feet bumper to bumper, my unit was 24 feet bumper to bumper and still was labeled as a 22 foot unit. So take advertisements with a grain of salt but they give you a close size after all, best thing visit a unit and check the shower and the toilet for elbow room, I have seen $200,000+ A units where you had to be a contortionist in order to do the paper work or take a shower with out punching holes in shower stall with your elbows. navegator

RE: Modify OR Access Easily Over cab Bed for the Older Camper

When I purchased the C it did not have a ladder, it was a demonstrator and I realized that the drivers seat was used by looky-loos to climb to the overhead bunk, the back was crooked in comparison to the copilots seat, I ended up taking it apart and straitening a number of parts and replacing the arm rest detent mechanism, best thing to do modify a wood ladder or have one made. navegator
