I have been watching this forum for a few weeks now and recently joined. I just wanted to thank all the people that make this happen! I am in the building stages of my first carputer project and owe most of my success to this forum and the great guys and gals that post invaluable info.
I am now hooked on this place and cant wait every day to come home from work and check out everyones posts. I will be posting and hope I too can be a plus to the community.
And? . . . . . . .
sorry I was just waiting for the punchline.
ps welcome aboard.

nice to see someone enthusiastic, appreciative, and hoping to contribute, instead of flipping out when they ask a stupid question and someone tells them to
welcome to the forums
