Now that...that was awesome. My compliments to you, sir. When I get some "Republic of Dave" stickers made up...you're getting the first one.

Okay, I think I'm drawing the line, here. I don't mind some on-topic or relevant commentary - even when there's a tangent - but sometimes it can get a little out-of-hand. Be advised.

You and I think alike.

Also, Pookie...that is - hands down - the best reason I've ever seen on a post deletion comment. Seriously.

I'll be ordering my RC Long Arm kit as soon as I run out of scrap steel, cheater bars, paperweights and tomato stakes.

He's just getting me back for baiting him into nearly admitting the limitless and inherent awesomeness of RC stuff...

In all seriousness, I'm split on saving my pennies for some Savvy/Currie arms or just building my own. The same decision applies to a steering linkage...the more I think about it, the more I kind of want to take it on as a welding/fab project.

Got to love the T=$ conundrum. If you have the time, you usually don't have the money, and if you have the money, you are so busy you don't have the time!

It also come down to DT vs. A = B***h factor.
Downtime vs. availability, = how much the spousal unit supports the endeavor.

Fortunately, Annabelle likes to weld...which throws off all the conventional math.
