....had me hazed and confused and wheezing....

so I gave up on it until I can get another filter and get the other side cleaned out.

then its going to be cleaning the frame up, maybe spraying the inside with rust bullet or something just to make sure. I will give it a good cleaning and see what it looks like, spot checking the frame there's still good paint on it, so I'll see how it cleans up and make a decision on painting the frame.

I know vacuuming isn't tech :-)

Then it will be ready hopefully to receive its motorvation...
still no call from the machine shop...they've got to be getting close.
