Default SP 36

With Bill Pape as a witness ican say that the SP36 was just as wellbuilt as any Bird on the planet.
Bill is helping me scrap one out,and today we moved into the "saw the front and rear caps off" mode.
Beware the power of a sawzall!!
taking the dash out and the over head cabinets is a huge job.
more soon!

Bill had previous practice with the sawzall on my new Fantastic Vent Fan opening, but Ryan made all OK, you can't even tell Bill was there

Its cheaper to buy new ones than to buy used ones that may not work next week.

1. I figured that was the best thing. 2. Got any cool pictures for the autopsy file? 3. Do you have a Engine Ammeter ? Mine seems dead, Don't know if it is wiring or the meter, About time to pull the dash apart I reckon .

we will get pics before the junk man comes.
I do have the front and back caps sawn off.
$60 worth of sawzall blades!
I tell you what,sawing the front cap off a Bird is hard work,the floor is almost impossible to saw.
I will get some pics,showing the steel used in the floors and walls of a bird.
