    , yeah them are some big units judging by the size of that car. If you turn them on they work better too.
    I would have used downflow application right over the opening in the curb.

    These are for a McDonalds restaurant. They were originally downshots. The return sucked wild under the 14" curb and had mold and moss 2-3" thick covering the entire curb. They were 5 ton units and had 4-8" supply ducts hooked up and 1-14" return. We had to increase the supply ducts, put 1" plywood over the curb, install the sheetmetal caps, and do all gas, electric, and drains. Again if you knew the job, they don't manufacture replacements so side discharge worked best.

    Tough job, looks OK, would be nice to coat all that duct the same though, so it looks uniform.
    Don't eat there though, they have new slogan since the big shot of mckiy d's croaked, "big macs cause heart attacks"

    What were the old clunkers? The ones around here are modernizing to York Predators - the old ones were some really funky units. Not a brand name I recognized.

    Took me a minute to find the SUV - pretty funny.

    Looked at both of your posts and while "I have not seen it done like that before" it looks like a quality install - nice job.
