    I just read this whole thread and I must say I'm impressed by your skills. Your way ahead of where I was when was your age. Keep up the good work, I can't wait to see it finished!

    Jon, did you take any pics while doing your wiring? My 57 I got came completely disassembled, and I sure would like to see where all the wires run to. Any help would be appreciated.
     
  25. No I haven't yet. I can try and do that for ya.
     
  26. Just read this entire thread. Great job man. If you need some resperator stuff I can hook you up in a month. I need to get back to the states and I can mail you out 2 or 3 medium half face masks with some filters. Lemmie know if you want em. They would be brand new.
     

  27. Yeah for sure man, I'd love to have some.
