Other than that it was quite a little gadget.

I did return it and they were very gracious about taking it back.

Does Tractor Supply still sell bolts by the pound?
John, you must have gotten the Grey one, I saw that the guys on Car Warriors had the Grey one and had nothing but trouble with it 71 hours into the build, thought for sure that they wouldn't get the car done that time...but they did...I have the Beige one, ya, mostly Beige.
