Thanks, guys!! Going to dig around for the buildsheet today and get some roller tires installed.

Supertracker, I know my posts are boring, and I'll try to lighten it up next time. [img]<<GRAEMLIN_URL>>/biggthumpup.gif[/img]

Big box of parts just showed up for that T-Bird, so need to jump on that, update the thread, jump back in on Super Bee, update thread. Oh, I think I have to go to work somewhere in there too. Maybe I can just call in too busy for work? [img]<<GRAEMLIN_URL>>/dunno.gif[/img]

Scheduling: &quot;This is Kristen, how can I help you First Officer Molnar?&quot;
Me: &quot;Yeah, um, Hi. Listen, I know I have a trip tomorrow, but, frankly, I'm just too busy to come in to work.&quot;
Scheduling: &quot;OK, call us when you're not so busy&quot;
Me: &quot;Great, thanks. Almost didn't have enoough time to make the call. I have two threads on I needed to update!&quot; [img]<<GRAEMLIN_URL>>/biggthumpup.gif[/img] [img]<<GRAEMLIN_URL>>/hmmm.gif[/img] [img]<<GRAEMLIN_URL>>/bs.gif[/img]
