My pleasure. The Project/Restoration stories for speedonthewater.com a fun to do because the owners of the boats have pretty much endless enthusiasm.

Ditto! A well known Michigan builder just built a couple of gems with those heads that grenaded on the dyno! Good luck to the new owner.

These are the kind of stories that I love to read Matt.
Real people rebuilding on a budget. Still ending up with a nice fast skater. Excellent story!
