Following up on the previous post regarding the final package of B/W presentation drawings (one PDF file):

Here is a thumb-nail cartoon-set for you to see a rough-example of number of sheets and basic layout.  Please take notes on any help that Cade gives you in getting the set to look presentable as a Preliminary Design set.

Ex:  A1 thru A5  +  S1 thru S8.
(Thank you Cade for putting this together)

Keep up the great work everyone!  One week to go –
