    It took me longer to decide how to zip tie in place than it took to connect up. Front start to finish, including opening the beer, it took me 10 minutes to install and be ready to ride.

    Giving credit where credit is due, I didn't make the graphic, only bookmarked it for when MY IICE shows up...
    Hopefully by springtime .... :lol3

    If Poolside & marketing are listening, a little round sticker to put on the lid with the pin layout on it would be a nice touch :wink:

    <table border="0" cellpadding="5" width="650"><tr><td>You bet, I am with you folks on a sticker of some sort.

    I tried several different adhesive formulations for stickers, and none worked very well on polypropylene. That's what the vial is made of, polypropylene. As slippery as Teflon, and permanent adhesive doesn't really work unless you flame or corona treat the plastic surface. After the adhesive tryout I priced custom-size die-cut labels. Then, I made the nice graphic for you. :D

    I had looked into laminating a card with the graphic on it and then taping it inside my side panel. Since I have to remove the side panel to get to it, I figured it would always be ther for me.

    Good idea.

    I'm making a smaller, all-in-one graphic. I'll post it up when I finish.

    Yeah.............. not much sticks to polypropylene................ :lol3
    I'll likely felt-tip it :wink:

    One question: Does the IICE unit have a thermocouple in it to help it work it's magic, and is thus somewhat temperature sensitive (don't want to mount in dead air space) or does it matter................
    Sorry, I'm sure this had been discussed ... but I missed it..........

    Does this mean the final build batch has shipped, or is it just confirming the parties with outstanding orders?

    thanks

    <table border="0" cellpadding="5" width="650"><tr><td>Hey there Jason. That's the list of standing orders. I put it up there in response to the posts, email, and PM requests I receive with "Where am I on the list?" questions.

    When the batches of 30 ship I'll do the same as before, and post up the batch list.

    There were a couple of back-ordered parts, and the first batch should be leaving next week. If my 'free' time remains as available as it has been, the whole list should be shipped by early February.
