Replaced the front window on the box with a NOS one that was not all fogged up. (New Old Stock) Ordered a replacement flasher unit.

Any more panera trips in the future?

I'd be more then happy to help any way I can. I have a bit of freetime now that I'm off active duty again.

Let me know.

Been busy raising two little ones so I have not had much time to help do squat.
