But if "Thank You" would more often be the last word, some threads could be ended a little more civil.

Thank You

Just explain to us what you are calling a frame ? from your past posts you replaced the baggage framing and it sounds like you did a good job

 Cody, if it was one of my remarks that made Libby upset I am deeply sorry. No disrespect meant to any one at any time. I have edited this post from one of describing a few designs as food for though to one of feeling like a heel now! My only intention was to help. Thank you Smiley

For those who do not know what is involved in a frame restoration on a Eagle you can check Bob's Bus Page on his 05 Cody did a lot of work if the old Eagles frame is gone he is to be commended Menear did a good job on his also got to love the Eagles

Well Cody, if you read my comments about farmers, you will see that I consider that the supreme compliment.  Again, if you read my post, I did not even mention your converter or at least that certainly was not my intention. 

I don't have the energy to look up the thread where you describe the work done to your bus. Would you mind posting the link.   I think that if we could all look at that work, we can better understand how the bay renovation ties into the engine compartment structure.  If you have the confidence that the structure is sound, then go for it. 

It is never my intention to say that something will not work.  In my early years as an engineer I often told folks that their design would not work (did so politely).  Many times the customer would come back an tell me how the design had worked marvelously for years!

My approach on all of these types of threads are to let all the readers (not just Cody) know that there could be issues with a given approach.  I don't say that it will not work, just be careful.  If you will note, I always try to give alternatives. 

Damn, why do I even bother to respond to these kinds of threads? Angry Angry Angry Angry  Perhaps all the folks with some insight who have left this board are as tired as I am of the crap that goes on here.

So with that, I am sure I have made you even madder, thus I will back off.

Can't resist, I am a very bad man = what you asked, post one, was...


I'm now asking the guys on the board that are familier with iggle rears to give me their thoughts and what reinforcement they would suggest,

Andy> must be you have an older Harley, my 08 doesn't leak...  Wink

After reading these post I just want to thank you guys for bringing back those fond memories when I was told repeatedly of how things I had planned to do and eventually did, wouldn't work! And might I mention that while most all you naysayers are changing motors, suffering heat issues, frame rust, shift problems, oil leaks, wiring problems, not to mention, right or wrong toilet placement, electrical wiring and plumbing or piping on the inside, wall paper or paint, carpet versus wood, plywood thickness, screws, nails and rivets, or aux air compressor's to get home on, or the mpg your coach gets compared to what YOU think it should get, MINE is doing just great and I did it MY way. Sure I listened to all of your opinions, (Key word OPINION) but the end result was still MY way! IF (big word) anything was to go wrong, I don't think any one of you would come and pay for it IF I followed YOUR opinion! My way might not have been perfectly done or to code for that matter but while all of you are bickering over what is right and what is right, I'm enjoying the hell out of mine! You all should do the same, but thanks for reminding me why I only post in CERTAIN threads and laugh at all the others! Fond memories for me for sure!  Smiley

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!  Grin

I saw no posts saying it couldn't be done - only cautions to potential problems which, surprisingly enough is what the original post asked for.
Then there are the same old ones who seem to think that if you mention or ask about potential problems you are saying "don't do it".

This thread was originally posted in off topic - I find it funny that some treated it seriously while the o.p. continuously bashed those giving him the best advice.

cody- for someone who has received so much from this board & it's members, I can't fathom why you would even think about involving a fedreal court - Especially after you had to agree to the new & improved terms & conditions of use of this board before you could post anything here.

Save yourself time & money & don't post! But don't you dare to try to bite the hand that is extended as an offer to help. Shame on you for acting this way!

May whatever is troubling you soon pass & a fair wind return to speed you on your way to attaining your goals easier & quicker.

I do hope your lift project is a wonderful success & you have many, many trips to enjoy it.

Sorry Cody but,
Thank you board for not deleting this thread!!!! I am a true "blonde" and love the fact that I can use these threads instead of my limited brain space for reference. Seriously! And besides the "back and forth" of all of this, I got some good info and inspiration from it.

Thank you board and thank you Cody for the thread.
