I've heard that all the repro'd parts come from Dennis Carpenter's Reproductions. I've been told that
they manufacture the parts for all the other parts houses. Hey Eric (Merc '66 Camper Special) Glad to
see you didn't sell it!! ; )

That project sounds great. How about a plain text format that
everybody can read ;) or a web page that everyone can see, I'll
even give you some space :)

The relative gas density of Propane is 1.55 with air being 1.00. Since the
relative density is greater than 1, but less than 2, it is "considered"
slightly heavier than air. Yes, it will sink and find low lying areas,
but it is not heavy enough to *quickly* dissipate. Especially considering
the confined area inside the passenger compartment of a vehicle, or the
engine compartment, it is not something to treat lightly. The Upper and
Lower explosive limits of Propane are 9.5% and 2.1% respectively, so a
small amount is all it takes. Once you get lower than the LEL, you are
fairly safe, but being above the UEL not nearly as safe since a change in
wind would decrease the concentration.

I am also thinking about buying many $$$ worth of parts. (Gotta wait for
home improvements to be done). What I have done is to get all of the
catalogs that I can. I have made a spreadsheet list of all of the parts I
want to get. I then listed the supplier, page number, and price of each
item. I intend to contact each supplier and let them know what I want to
get and what the sum total of the lowest price of each item is and ask them
if they want to make a package deal at that price. If not I will simply be
making several smaller orders from all the suppliers rather than one.

They both look good! Gotta wipe the drool away now. I would point out that
the red 77 look like it was pieced together from several sources. The
grille is pre-76 and the front fenders are pre-77. The fact that he
mentions steering valve being replaced makes me wonder if the steering is
the early power ram setup.
