The manual is ready to be printed into an actual book. My intent earlier in the year was to have it out for Christmas but I lost my editor earlier this year which forced me to do the final editing myself.

That delay delayed collecting pre-payment funds for the discounted rate.

Then another project at work was dropped on my lap after my boss left the company. Last night I sent out the binder and CD of a ~275 page proposal for the USAF. As you can imagine, it has to be put together in a very specific way for the military.

Bottom line, I havenít had time to even check back here for a month and nothingís will happen until after the new year now.

On the bright side I have some Euro wiring diagrams and for sure I have 1998. There may be some similarities there that can help.

He hasn't provided us the ordering information yet, but I'm certain he will when the book is ready to go.
