Fans going in this weekend. we are hoping to have all the van thru-hulls done by the end of September. We are still kicking around whether or not to paint the fans to match the black rack of leave them white to blend into the van?

sorry for the rotated pics. 30 min is my tech frustration limit, we will wait for the night worker to wake up and adjust my annoying pics of her.

I may be jumping ahead but I have to do something while I wait for the rest of my electrical and tanks to arrive.
I figured a 12" sub will make movie night with the kids awesome, maybe even a little excited for some old school rap nostalgia.

The propane tanks are going in. We plan on having a remote fill somewhere easy to get to.

We started building the rack! I even got some help from the kiddos, one was happy to run the torch, and the other was happy to be away from little brother while he is wielding the torch.
