Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift.
Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly. Leave the rest to God!
It's scary when you start making the same noises as your coffee maker.

Nice engineering. Very cool! And you can convert it to run on french fry oil! Not only will it look cool but it'll smell like fries as to cruise down the road...

Thanks everyone! I haven't been on the site in a few weeks and I come back to see this! Very humbled! My build thread is under the 47-59 projects section if anyone wants to check out the full build or has any questions!
