Thanks jason, we have the same kinda shop here and others that want a credit score before a tune up. The more you do and the better your attitude the better off you'll be. I will be putting in braces on sat to take the shell off our caravel
(outrigger, rotted floor amongst other things). Had a very good fabricator tell me to bring him the outrigger and he will make me one for a case of beer. $14. For an outrigger is not bad and he said that he would weld it on if time permits. So there are good people out there just gotta find them and not forget them when they need a favor.
