Frank, going through the plans I noticed you did not have the flap between the cc and the wc as in the origninal Mack. Is it that the slide from the fb to the wc is enough to put heat into the wc or was there other considerations such as to make it simpler? Not serious just wondered as to the rational of leaving it out.
Just got to say the plans are very detailed and easy to follow. Just wish I had a angle iron notcher... make all those door frames a tad easier. Oh well the trusty angle grinder and slimmy disk will be fine.
Thanks once again for all the hard work you guys put into producing the plans.

I haven’t seen the plans yet, but my experience is the one between the FB and WC is fine.

Thanks RC. I thought it might have been that.
Now I've got to fight the urge to dive in. Got a mini and a couple of UDS's to finish for family first.
And then I get that all important "seniors" warning... the mind says YES and the body says what the hell are you thinking... =))

Yep, we left it out because we almost never used it. The one from the Firebox is more than enough
