J.D.

Thank you for the friend request - gladly accepted sir.  Look forward to communicating with you - headed to the workshop to continue working on build 23 as it is becoming a much more intense build than i had expected initially.  But I guess the more we let our thinking outside the box so to speak evolve the crazier these builds can become - have a great day and again thanks for all you nice comments.
