Howdy.

I signed up long ago. I saw an email from the Suedes in my spam folder just as hit 'delete'. Looks like I'm allowed now!

I'll post a bit more info later when I get home.

Looks good and welcome aboard, I've been following your build when I can on the HAMB.  Did you shorten the wheelbase or is that stock A wheelbase?
