So, how did you do, buddy...?
Jim, I can't believe I overlooked your post (above) - sorry, buddy! But now we're coming up on a year since then; I'm wondering what you came up with? If you have any pictures - of either completed or still in-progress build(s) - I'd love to post 'em, man!
Just send 'em to me - or post yourself, and I'll come along and clean up anything that may need it.
And THANKS for your contributions, Jimmy!
