I would like a mobile version of the FMBC site, even if it meant losing ALL data and starting over.

Yes, it is uber important.

No, leave it as is please.

I am on the fence.

I have 2 "Westys", same year, same color scheme, 1 full camper and a weekender.
I am selling the weekender for $6000

or use as downpayment on a VWsynchro-camper (4x4).

I originally bought the weekender for parts for my camper, but then it kept running so well after i gave it new cylinder heads, new steering fluid pump, shocks.....

Ok. I'm always behind the ball. Nothing available at Paddy's wagon. Do they tolerate doubling up on sites? If so, anyone willing to double?

Hey guys I'm in the process of cleaning up this engine I have and was wondering if anyone has had any luck cleaning there fan shroud and with what? I dropped it off at a transmission shop and he's run it through his high pressure heated cleaner several times but it only took the grease and oil off? I've heard there's a way to restore the shine without painting if you guys know of anything please let me know! Thanks in advance.

Matt, it never really shined from the factory. They were always flat. If you want it to shine, it will take some elbow grease. Painting is an option, but eventually it will start to chip off and be even worse looking. Bead blasting is an option, but you'd probably have to split the halves and who knows how many bolts will brake splitting it. You'd also have to chase the threads after blasting it.

By hand, start with some wet dry sand paper say 320 grit and work up from there. The red scotch brite pads will help to get into tighter places. Maybe a dremmel tool for the really tight spaces. mark
