Contact paper. You always thinking, Dalton.

Made the foam stronger. Funny, if I had a wrinkle, I just used my heat gun and it went away.

That really is cool and put our hobby on the tube in the international spotlight, Thanks Joe!
I have met Joe and his parents at several events, and they attended our event last year. They <entire family> are knee deep in the hobby all of the time and very approachable. If you run into them at Joe Nall, say hi to them.

I'll make an effort to meet them for sure.

Frosty Dog Electric is just a couple of weeks away. It's a really cool event. Are you going?

Yep, that is unfortunate. People with children can't plan a family camping trip unless they take their kids out of school and school systems don't look favorable on such decisions.

Great vids DaDude....
