Well, now that I'm up and have taken a shower, I want to say thank you to everyone for their kind words and donations.

I also wanted to give credit where credit is due. Granted, I may be the driving force behind allot of these projects, but without the great people I have chose to well me get these projects finished, there would be no way any of them would have been done in time. You may want to send these guys a quick email, and thank them for busting their asses too, to make sure we all have a great time.

1st off, I have to give a HUGE thank you to :

Mike at Westcoast Powder Coating.
http://www.westcoastpowdercoating.com/

Without him, NONE of these projects would have been done on time. Mike has REALLY bent over backwards to make sure everything has been coming out perfect, and FAST. Same day turn arounds for powder coating..  24 hour turn arounsd...   I dropped the chassis off at about 10am and will be picking them up at 5-6pm tomorrow..   You have NO IDEA how muchwork that it for 100 parts.
THANK YOU MIKE, YOU FUCKING KICK ASS !!!!!!


Steven at WarEagle / Dynamic CnC
http://www.wareaglemotorcycles.com/

Steven has come kick ass CnC machines that can do everything i can't. He helped me with some of the parts for the base. 2 day turn around time on some pretty complex parts. Without him, the speakers would be laying on the floor.


Last and DEFFINATLY not least... My "lazy lima bean" son, (he only got 12 job mon!!!)

Without him helping and PUSHING me 24/7, i know I would have given up and quit all together long ago.
I know I don't say it nearly often enough, but THANK YOU for making sure I get the shit done I'm supposed it, and picking up my slack, when I just can't do it.

Thanks for all your work on these projects guys!! I knew the amp build put together time was going to be tough...but then you upped the ante and didn't just buy a simple chassis. And it's going to wind up being really, really cool chassis! Amazing!

The speaker project taint no little undertaking either!! Really looking forward to seeing and hearing those! Pretty cool to remember Bob talking about the idea a few years ago and now they are going to be right there in front of all of us!

Sending $$$!
