Welcome. Tell us more. Where are you from? More pictures of the stealth build?

We went to the UK a couple of times and the two most common vehicles were the London Cab and the Transit Van! Wish they imported them here with the diesel, I'd have one now. The new Connect is just a bit too small.

They are available in the U.S. Maybe not Wyoming . . .

Hmm - closer inspection shows that while they are both "Ford Transit", they are a bit different. Oops.

Transit Connect isn't the Euro Transit. Soon, though.

There actually was a TC at the dealer in Wheatland for a while.

I thought Flanders lived in Springfield? Never knew where Springfield was though.

No,no,
not Flanders from Springfield
but
Morini from Flanders Field



In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow
Loved, and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Next project : airco notebook-cooler

During my last sunny and warm trip, the ASUS EEC notebook overheated and crashed three times.
Therefore this solution.

This setup fits in the dashboard.
The front-flaps are guiding the air-cooled air to the holes, cooling the bottom of the notebook.
The LCD-screen goes in the shadow giving upper box, making it more readable.
