ospho is also good for etching into galvanizing before paint. I've used it since bodyshop class when I was 17.

Be glad you took that class! I can't begin to count the number of people I've chatted over the years who had no idea you couldn't paint directly over galvanization and wound up with royal messes. Today there are "self-etching" primers but I still "pickle" the surface first.

Been shopping for potable and grey water tanks, kind of pricey. I've noticed that there are lots of plastic 55 gallon drums available in my area, does anyone have experience utilizing the drums for storage? I have a fair amount of space under the Neb since it is rear engine.

I've seen them used before.
I may explore this option as well.

Scored solar panels yesterday on ebay for a ridiculous price, the sellers is taking offers, I got 4 150w 12v panels new $132 each. Here is the auction, if you are interested, less than $1.00 a watt is great, .88 per watt is amazing: http://www.ebay.com/itm/N-POWER-CRYS...item19f39d9948

I hear you. Neither my bus, nor my garage-shop are heated and we've had sub-zero weather here. Too cold for much of anything bus-related, so my brain is just working on all the stuff I'll be doing after it warms up ...

Being a Solar Dunce I had to look these up. Can't find out squat about the company that makes them ( "NPower?) but it appears to be a brand that Northern Tool sells so it must be Chinese. Anyone here know any more about them? Does sound like an awfully good deal if the product is reasonable.
