    Glad to see you jumping in with a worklog to share your project. I look forward to your progress!

    BTW, do you have to keep the car under that roof so "they" can't see it? (ya, I know, your sick of the Roswell jokes..)

    Have you picked a front end yet?

      Actually, that is an old picture, just a good one. I was renting that place before we bought the house we are in now. But yeah, it keeps 'them' from seeing if I'm home or not....

        Alright. Nice to see another Toyota in the worklogs. I'll be watching as of the fact I'm a Toyota fan.
