    Looks like this will be a nice RPU. Have you thought about building longer 1/4,panels so you have a little more room in it. Kind of like the ones Last Refuge Hot Rod Builds.
    I have been following and like what I see, are you trying to get it done by Piston and Paint in Denton? Frank

  21. LOL, don’t we all! Hard on the self-esteem when you measure your ability against @Bass, @Flop, and some of the other HAMB superheroes.
