That is so good to see man, you are cracking through it!! You've done an awesome job by the looks of things... Like I say man, if you need a hand one weekend dont hesitate to ask...
Am spending the first of many days on the new VeeDub tommorow so hopefully will have a few pictures of the Masochist in progress... have to bail out the water in the back first!
