Re: '36 Ford pickup coming together....

Black is beautiful but near impossible not to be frustrated with. It's ice to see someone breaking the mold and choosing a non-traditional, easy-to-care-for color scheme. I like it a lot! Nice work.

Re: Jack recall, chinese junk from Harbor Freight

Well said JT Ford. I don't wish bad on anybody but it's difficult to respect the Chinese government and their policies which have such afar-reaching repercussions on so many levels.
