    There is nothing on your FED that needs "growing". It's perfect in every way. JMHO.

    It either means you're filling it with oil or the photo is wrong way 'round and your car is upside down on top of an oil bottle.

    Well done Carl, sounds real nice! I love your approach to building stuff, doing everything by yourself instead of farming it out. Hope this one runs for a long, fast time!
