That's a bummer but I hope your build goes smoothly. I love seeing new snowies joint the ranks

And the world will be better for this
That one man, scorned and covered with scars
Still strove with his last ounce of courage
To reach the unreachable star!

Thanks Long Shot. It will definitely be a learning experience. That's for sure. But I am looking forward to it.

Hey, John... You're using the IMG BBCode tags correctly but there are two reasons why your images aren't showing up. The first is that they are shared to your Facebook Friends only. So, first change the permissions on those photos on Facebook to "Public." The second problem is that the image URL you've specified isn't the direct image on Facebook, but a page to display the image. It's returning HTML and not image data. So, after you've fixed the permissions, I'll fix your images for you.

So a little update. Armor should hopefully be paid off with this upcoming paycheck. Then I can finally start building!

Also have everything else sanded and prepped and ready for assembly minus the hand and knee armor, which jedi Jeff is still working on. All the hardware for assembly has been purchased as well.

Idk. I am hoping in the next few months. I am ready to assemble now but don't want to until I have help. Meegs is helping me but has a very busy schedule so I have to go based off that. Meegs has been a god send honestly. His guidance throughout this has been awesome.

I plan to. That's why I can only build when he is able to help out.
