Its kinda bittersweet, i never thought i could get this much done. I almost gave it up. But good timing, advice and some very skilled people helped me finish.
Thanks to the FF members and their awesome used parts deals!
Turbo Turtle..you are the man!
Tom (Focus-Power)..first person who welcomed me here and offered plenty of helpful advice.
Sporadic..the inspiration for this whole thing..i saw your build and i knew i could pull this off! Thank you.
