It does appear to be that. Which really ******* blows my mine as to how much work you would have to do to polish it. My 2 tacotaco manifolds started to get surface rust about 10 minutes after I pulled them out of the box.

Not sure where in Utah P2K is located in, but me recollection of the place was that, like much of the western US, air conditioning isn't really a big deal. Yeah, it gets hot sometimes. But not humid like here on the commie coast.

Having lived in Boise, AC is absolutely not needed. In fact, I'm not sure a top is needed.

when you have the serial/usb cable plugged in {not into MS yet}, does Win7 assign a com port to it?
