MASTER INDEX FILE !
Forum Rules for Posting
MANY THANKS to everyone who has contributed to the information in these files. This forum will always be a work in progress. Its a way to file away all of my Commander information for personal use, and its also a way to share it with anyone else who may be interested, or who may need the info (for their personal and non-commercial purposes), or may want to post, ask questions, etc. Because much of the information on the forum is not checked for accuracy, represents opinions in some cases from unknown sources, and may represent a safety or personal/financial liability if acted upon, the information in this forum and Master Index is offered with the very best of intentions, but it MUST be validated by the user before utilization. If anyone sees a link in this index that does not work, of finds any inaccuracies, please post a note and Ill try to fix it!
Regards, all the best,
This MASTER INDEX
is updated periodically to include threads that are worthy for reference. Some of the general information posts are not included, as they are conversational and informative, but not detailed enough to be in the reference files.
This site is dedicated to a wonderful woman by the name of Janet, who I am mighty proud to call my wife!
We are here to share what we have, so stop in, browse a while, and hopefully you will find something that will be helpful. If you have some information or photos that will potentially be helpful to others, please feel free to post the information here. Our mission here is to share information and have fun, and we extend to you a cordial WELCOME ABOARD !
