I'm discovering that almost everything going into Redford needs a fix or slight modification to work! I finished staining the ceiling boards yesterday. Several of them had very large knot holes in them. I used some resilient caulking to glue them into place because they would have shaken out of the boards with driving and vibrations. This morning I picked up new bolts for the three SOK (206Ah) lithium ion house batteries. I checked how the 4/0 cable lugs would fit (two to each post) and found that the stock bolts were too short. I went to Home Depot and picked up M8 20mm bolts and things will fit much better (without bottoming out the bolt in the battery lug.)
Calvin here - after spending almost 33 years in education as a high school teacher, elementary teacher, and elementary administrator, it was time to retire! I did so happily and with no regrets; it was a terrific and fulfilling career. I do enjoy building projects as the design and building process is very therapeutic and you see a completed functional product in the end. Now to combine the build with another of Angela's and my passions - travel - is something we're really looking forward to.
