It strikes me that we could better schedule our time if we knew about when to expect delivery of our modification kit. My suggestion is that we post our order number here, and the date when we receive the kit. Zenith has said they are shipping about 20 mod kits per day, so that should help us make a better guess when to expect a kit.
Of course, it depends on at least some of us posting here when the kit arrives. My order # is 7922, and was accepted on November 24. I haven't seen or heard anything yet.
I've just unpacked the boxes, and discovered a couple of things worthy of note. First, the updated drawings as of 25 January were included.
Second, a note was included saying that 65 each MS20470A05-15 are back ordered. I haven't assessed what impact that may have on the sequence in which I can do things. However, I really appreciate Zenith sending me what they could, so I can get started.
Shortages like this might explain (at least in part) why we are seeing more than the expected delay in shipments.
