Southwest 737 Winglet Progress; NM 1 And Nev 1?

Couple of quick questions regarding the Southwest 737-700 winglet program:

1) how many conversions (per week?) are being turned out?
2) how long are the conversions actually taking (the ads I see say it takes roughly 72 hours)?
3) anyone know when New Mexico One and Nevada One are due for their conversions?

1/ Two per week, last I heard...

2/ The winglet work itself may only take 72 hours, but the aircraft are in for other work during the same visit and total time is running 4-5 days.

3/ Nevada-1 (N727SW is the older of the two, and I'd expect to see it done first, maybe 4-5 months from now. New Mexico One (N781WN) is older, so maybe 6-7 months from now. Those are just guesses, so maybe 737doctor can get some more exact info..

Is the work being done at DAL, or in Seattle, or is it being split up?

>>>will every southwest a/c be retrofitted with winglets?

-200s. No, they'll all be retired within the next year or so..

-300s. Maybe. They are available for -300s.

-500s. Maybe. If they can get them on -300s, -500s could work to, but I don't know whether they been authorized yet.

-700s. Yes. Any new SWA -700 coming from Boeing as of Dep/Oct 2004 will have the winglets installed at Boeing, before delivery. Any -700s already in the fleet, or scheduled for delivery before the above dates, will be retofitted.
