Up extra early for a quick trip into Laredo Lowe’s. I was there by six fifteen and picked up a new portable air conditioner (14,000 BTU). Our other one broke something on the blower. I had to rework the opening in the window board I use for the exit air duct. The hose for this new unit has a larger diameter hose and the fitting is an oval shape where the other one was round.
Portable Air Conditioner
I was able to get that done between vehicles coming and going from our gate while my wife went to sleep. I had the new portable air conditioner up and running in an hour and a half.

Other than the frack continuing and piping crew in today. I am still working on Busters front hood removing the diamond shield adhesive. It is a slow process removing the adhesive. The actual plastic comes off fairly easy. The adhesive varies as to how much the sun has dried or aged over time.

My work on Buster continues removing the adhesive is a long time process. The two lighter colors are looking good across the front now.

Our portable air conditioner is working very well keeping Buster cool. With that running the front foof air conditioner only comes on part time in the higher ambient temperatures otherwise it is off. Thasat is important to is as the roof air conditioner has a higher noise level when it is operating.
