Thanks Phillip. I appreciate the encouraging words. Some of this repair business is sort of like pulling your own molars. As soon as you pull hard enough to make any progress, the pain gets so bad that you have to stop and have a period of recovery!
Certainly not for the faint of heart!
Although, I will have to say that once you figure out how you're going to approach the repairs and formulate a plan, everything gets much easier. I'm not nearly through yet, but I'm through a lot of the worst. Doing the prep work for each phase is harder than doing the actual repair.
