    No stealing needed, use away! I borrowed it from Marcus from Australia, and his Grand Willy's project. Now there is a master craftsman metal worker.

    No problem Green Bean,

    Life gets involved in progress attempts. That's just the way it goes. I know this next year I am going to try and double down and get some work done on my wagon.

    No need for a fancy cover or a heated garage for the Heep. Even with the night time lows in the lower 30s, and the highs in the mid 50's to mid 60's, it's always is a good day for a Heep ride.
