Haha Dspin, did you check the first post? I do my journal a little differently, I keep the latest update in the first post and then move the previous one to the end. There's even more porn in the first post right now.

Thanks! Yeah, I'm trying to wrap this project up. It's been off the road for 8 months.

Keep up the good work man, one thing I really appreciate in a build is people who are able to remain organized and get it done in a timely manner!!! I LOVE RESULTS :D

Organized, check.

Timely manner... lol, not so much. ;) It's been down for almost 8 months, even then it was only on the road for 1k miles and was down for a few months before that.

Thanks, I'm definitely looking forward to getting this thing on the road again and love the input!
