Question Bag contents

Does anyone have a digital file of the contents of all of the QB paper bag contents?

Something that can be searched on a PC.

I wanted to do the same thing - get a searchable file. Vans was happy to send me a scanned PDF but not a searchable file.

Default inventory scan

I scanned mine into MS word I then could search for a part number and find what bag it was in.

Default IMO after 1.5 builds

This is one of the biggest improvements Van's could (easily) make to their kits.

Gil,
Call Vans they can email you a text file in no time. I've done this with all my kits and it is a lifesaver.

OK,

My first reply was facetious but......

Really chaps - get rid of the bags !

Spend a night or two decanting everything into categorised drawers. Get a couple of large multi drawer Stanley flat boxes from Home Despot. The ones with clear tops. Just write on the tops in best blue Sharpie. When empty - wipe off and rename.

All your fasteners go into drawers, all the twiddly bits get labelled in ways you will remember them such as canopy bits, connectors, AN fittings, even down to a box or two just named weird sh*t !!!!

Hey - where is such and such ?

Don't know, look in the weird sh*t box

The prints don't reference to bags, they use parts call outs.

In a 7, an 8 and 2 12's it has worked a treat.

Default Yep

I spent quite a bit of time doing inventory, consolidating parts, labeling and putting into storage cabinets. Takes time but saves more when you know where the parts are...
