    FYI: I noticed that you still have a lot of "SLAP" or echo in your shop. You should mount some noise-deadening panels on the ceiling. It will stop the sound from bouncing between the floor and ceiling. Of course rubber anti-fatigue mats in some of the workspaces might help too.

    Ya know...I've always found it funny how bad GM and FCA people hate Ford. Cause I have a Ford, yet I'm pretty much indifferent to GM, and FCA is a joke and not worth the time to hate. Cause let's be honest here, you don't really have that deep of an emotional reaction to something unless you're at least a little insecure about it. And when you read the comments, you realize that the only real ammo they got is how many negative acronyms you can make with the name. Just a thought.

      +Darkmax992 That is quite the opposite of what I've experienced. America is far more conservative than most Brits can handle hence why they are so critical of America. They think having to get a license to carry a knife in public is alright and they think guns are horrible. Trump is not the problem.

    Alec, welcome to the USA. Montana is one of the most beautiful States in the Union. Not sure where you're located, but if you get a chance, you should look up Dave Engles on his "Engles Coach Shop" channel. He rebuilds horse drawn wagons (of every size) and does all of the iron forging as well. One of my favorite channels. Check out the Borax Wagon series...simply amazing work.
