The dates on the pictures are not correct sometimes... But I'm doing it now for about 2 years always after work for a few hours whenever I have time. It's not always fun but sometimes you have to go through hard times for a good ride

The repair looks phenomenal. Saw the drain port cleaned up and ready to roll as well so it won't happen again :)

This is my signature. There are many like it, but this one is mine.
My signature is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life.
