Re: Woods Skoota 32DM

I still feel like such a newbie here, and I do not have anything constructive to add to your build, that I have been hesitant to comment on your thread....

Re: Reefie's LB26

Yes Reefie. Please keep lots of pics coming. Who knows what someone could learn from the simplest photo. Besides, this is one of the few threads I follow and get notices on. So the more photos you post, the more often I will have a reason to visit the forum. 8)
