    hey, on the auto TV shows they would build that in an hour - but, if the depth of your wallet does not match the depth of this project resell it - or find a partner in crime - or sponsors to invest time & $$

    If any pit is worthy of throwing money into it, this one fits the bill.
    Neat project, enjoy.

    Bob, it ran a bunch of different power, but last was a Warm 390, according to Mr Brown, in Pueblo Co.
