    For the pups...

    A big hole looking for a reducer....the pup that dug this put the dirt in the wrong spot..when he was doing something else i placed the dirt where it belonged(out of 255's way)

    [​IMG]

    The "HOSS" slaming in the reducer tripple clamping the 25 GPM main feed...THis guy is crazy, he always has to have things perfect...It can get tedious working with him cause he is constantly keeping an eye/Putting his own opinion into your ditch(which @ times can be irritating)

    I will say the guy is wicked @nal but does fablous work....his finished product

    A pic of my reduced mainifold i built and installed...The pup again dug the trench wrong and when he left i moved his dirt for him...

    Yeah that manifold looks like crap. Crowded, crooked. How am I supposed to work on the two outer valves very well. and is that a 6" box instead of the full depth box? Don't like it.

    anybody know where to get that red striped poly? it is oil creek right? it would make things a lot easier when we're pulling multiple lines... having the red stripe and plain black.
