    At one time we didn't have a mock up M2 to sight in the remote weapons system, (RWS) which utilizes a heavy barrel M2 Browning. We would have to check out a M2 from the government armory. Our mode of transportation on the depot were golf carts. Two of us would have to go and sign for the weapon, then cruise back to the shop to perform the boresight. Nothing makes a golf cart cooler then having a Ma Deuce leaned un against the seat, in between two guys. Now they use a gutted out shell of a 240C or a carcass of a Browning with nothing more than a charging handle and a barrel. The weapon was there just to hold the bore scope/laser sight to adjust the camera sight to both were zeroed in sink.

    Look at those drawings! You must be having a grand old time. This is definitely going somewhere as far as marketing. You know may be there is some history buff out there who wants some of this? "Building History - a modern take on the manufacturing of Jeep that saved the world". (Box set available, maps, materials, and the untold declassified true story of 'Magoo' as told in special badging documenting his greatest Victories). You'd have to get the story of Magoo, of course.

    Fascinating! Probably the most intimidating golf cart out there.

    Yes I'm having a lot of fun trying to make everything look as professional as I can. You are the master of marketing here. You have plenty of great ideas.

    Still working on the images that will be included in the build document, while the printer is spitting out small jeep parts.
