i did come up with a way to use some of that passenger foot well area..... at least for now.
i mounted suzi's air pump up against the firewall.
this is that harbor freight "high volume" air pump(the more expensive one) i got a while back to replace my little buzz box.
it is now wired to a switch and plumbed to the rear, where i can plug in my air hose.
i used to have it in the back where it was convenient but took up useful space. now it's using what was a harder to access stowage area. i'm also playing w/a backpack type carrier to put on suzi's butt, for some stuff like my air hose, jumper cables, straps, and idontknowyets. i have a prototype mounted. if i like it, i will confess.
i have stripped all the gear out of her, vacuumed a lot of drift/settle, and have started the re-pack/re-supply process.
still got a week and a half.......
