    Well the big job finally shipped last week (two month lead time once order was placed) and we swung it into place today...

    Now that we got the newb in place the old unit set in the parking lot...time to make it go away. It would make a nice storage unit once gutted as the main shell is 23ft x 7.5ft x 7ft tall, once I cut the front section off where the compressors are. It was balls to the wall the first day to get all the good stuff out before dark...so no pics on that. Three coils 90in x 60in x 3in and couple hundred pounds of CU and tub o wire.

    Winch was a must as the platform with the compressors I cut away weighed about 1400 pounds.

    Hey KZ if you're looking for that shell to go away, let me know. Or if you get another big one like that. I'd be willing to pay a bit more than scrap value for it.

    Going to be a busy week coming up so a little OT today to get the shell outa there. Stripped it down to minimal support and pushed it over and cut them in half...Winched the panels up on the trailer and done.
