Don't waste a good opportunity to shut up!

Good judgment comes from experience, but experience usually comes from bad judgment.

The best thing is to learn from others that have mastered the one thing you need to learn!

I would tell you to go to hell but I already work there and I don't want to see your ugly face every day!

Not certain at this time Dan. But the possibility of an extra chassis is there too. A chassis would require collecting some components, but could give a big head start on putting it together and in helping to keep cost down too I think.

In another week or so, this will become clearer where we stand. I'm remembering you....

No worries man, Doug (whose there) had mentioned on the other site he didnt know about the linestage... Didn't know if he was interested in a kit, and if there were extra's.....

I may be in a position for one, but I was more inquiring for Doug. He is much more deserving :-$ .
