I was exactly thinking about using the Metro fan in the truck!!!!!!

I need the cap for now for my work. I have equipment that I need to move around that I can't let getting rained on .

I plan to do an aerocap once the weather is a little nicer and I have some time to work on it, then I can sell the green cap. (it is a little heavy!)
