The wife is going to be at a conference in Seattle until the 5th. So after that is possible. I still need to see when my finals are.

I will run the 8th and 15th by her and see what goes.

Send me your schedule when you get a chance. I want us to make a run to Asheville for a weekend. I'm thinking January or February.

Are the sleeves suppose to stick out that far? I thought that you had to weld them flush?

Gussets look good by the way.
