I returned the favor and give him the location of the ECM!

you made those drawings?! Those things fooled me into thinking they were some sort of factory spec drawings.
Impressed!!

I think she means she added the red
you can do that with many free programs.
Correct me if I'm wrong.

i don't see any red on the drawings.
Im a bit color blind, but usually I see it when someone points out a color I missed.

I found a pic in the manual but it had trim pieces, screws, and other markings all o in it. I removed all of the stuff that was not needed and repaired any broken lines. The I added the lines/arrows and measurements.

I am just using paint. I took mechanical drawing and worked with a guy that taught me some drafting years ago but I never learned to use any of the good cad programs and they weren't around in homes back then It is much easier for me to freehand drawings but that is difficult with a regular mouse. They do make a "pen mouse" that would make it much easier for curves or anything not straight.

Day 43 on the build and she is ready to go.
Slept like a baby last night in PLAN B (that''s the name of the van). Woke this morning and felt more at home then I had in a very long time. Opened the side door and kicked back in the rear faced front seat. Stretched out and enjoyed the fresh morning air and said yup this every morning works for me.
