Thanks SuperFlea.... what a beautiful thought out illustration. You should be commended for a great job. I will be doing my 01 ZTS when I get all the parts together. Have you any idea how much you invested in this project? I loved the picture quality. Thanks again. cb.

Thanks for the props. It's been a while, can't remember how much I spent on this. Must have been over 600 bucks.
