Hi Guys,
I'm confused.  What am I going to haul where?  Do I need a bigger suitcase?

I am aware of the Series 1 differences, but were the Series 2 parts 
commonized?  Could I use the bonnet from my 2200TC on my NAS 3500S?
I'm still trying to decide what to do about wing trim holes-weld up a 
set of 2000 wings or use the ones from the 2200TC, which I assume are 
the same as the 3500S since the side trims are identical.  I'd really 
like to save the 2200TC and restore it eventually, but I'm not makeing 
much progress and money will be tighter when I retire.

I really don't like the hood scoops and have shipped several sets to UK, 
NZ and Australia over the years, but they are effective and necessary in 
Texas, especially with AC.

Speaking of Texas, would you guys in BC send us some rain.  We haven't 
gotten a drop in over three months and the range fires are getting 
pretty bad.  We had two going at once, one of which was visible from 
town.  Each burned about 40,000 acres.
