Re: Finally started her up

Thanks. After all the careful planning and looking over everything several times I decided, hey its time. She fired on the first try even after all the new wiring, etc. It was a very good feeling to hear her finally run. It has gave me that little extra boost I needed to wrap this thing up. Nothing like going left with the build and saying hey Im gonna throw a seat in this thing and make a block.
