    Has Ted or anyone else from EA commented on how well they think the first build went? It seams like there was a few questions but overall it seamed to go smoothly. It seams like Roger took it a little cautiously, being the first time EA has put together a kit, to avoid making a mistake requiring welds to be cut.

    I talked to Travis Tuesday. He said it looked good.

    I got a piece of expanded metal to add to the back. Also my test batch of paint did fine.

    On the PAINT did ya do a scratch test just to see how well it worked? I'm sure it will be better than un-hardened paint no matter. Drying correctly was biggest concern without wrinkling or burning the paint (drying too fast or causing chemical makeup problems.)

    I may remember why I went to the other end of the shop, I'm just afraid once I get there I'll forget how to get back!
