The Crew:
When it comes to projects like this, the people involved are everything. Chris (aka the expert) can be seen taking the hood off of my car. My wonderful wife brought breakfast and coffee. My 2-month old daughter can be seen in her mobile command center checking the progress of the build. With out my wife's understanding and encouragement, this project would have never taken off.
