    Good to see you are still working on it. Sometimes things seem to slow down on a build, but if you do something every chance you can, sooner or later it will come together.

    When I get into slow times I do a lot of "engineering" work. I have little note pads full of design sketches of the ideas I get when the work slows down. :p

    Thanks! It's been slow, mainly findin parts, and cleanin then up. Puttin the truck together then pullin it back apart. Not fun, but hopefully this is the last time it gets put together! Minus paint
