Default Johnny C's Next Project is?

Well, the Hello Kitty AJ 2.5 project is 98% complete. I just need to wire the meter box, run final tests and make any adjustments. My garage tentant's 12.0 DJC is not progressing fast enough for me as my garage tenant is very busy at his house doing repairs. JohnnyC is already getting BORED and needs something to do or go crazy . I think I will be working on an outdoor generator enclosure since I really need one. I have a Kohler outdoor enclosure as seen in the pics below and I intend to fully modify is to be rodent proof and paint it Onan GREEN.

I hope to start the new project in the next several weeks or I may go insane from being bored. I would like any and all suggestions from the group as this project progresses. There will be no holds barred so we can make this enclosure totally custom. The sky is the limit.

Come to PEI and help build a pole barn there’s some Onans here to get your “green fix” also but you have to leave that PINK paint at home

My vote is for a Diesel or an old CW. It would be neat to see an old CW in Johnny C paint job and full restoration.

Put a screw in the Yanmar cylinder and run it for 20 hours. If it passes the JC flogtest then do a spif job on it.

There is a CW10 for sale here. Roy Washington. 1500 bux OBO. Unrestored. Might be set up for NG. Don't think you would want to run it on anything but dry fuel if their reputation for being fuel pigs is deserved.
