"Pie crust" slicks, I love it, never heard that term before and always search for the right word to describe them.
I worked on the transfer seat, things are looking good, right along with the plan from the beginning.
I thought I was going to have to make some changes but I think it will work out. Only got a few more days before the Goodguys! double
