    It's hard to see the splice. Good job. Of course you're still takin' the fuzzy pictures so that's either great craftsmanship or great photo technique ;)

    Carry on

    Already got this one lol,the free shipping sold it.Look exactly alike FYI

    I didn't have the air handler running,SO much noise.With that dust over lens is inevitable :rolleyes:

    Thanks Tex! :)

    I hope I'm up to it,I'm VERY out of practice :eek: but one of the few songs I know on bass I think is very appropriate to the Brotherhood Build theme.Thanks for the kind words Dazz :)

    Dang Dave it is moving right along. I like it and the only thing I know about the bass is it is part of the rhythm section and plays on beats 1 and 3 except when it don't.

    Your on a pace to be done early.
    We all know that finishing can chew up month easy though.
    Love the rapid fire progress, way to lead the way Dave!
