    That's the link to one of the photo ops. Check it out.

    I added to much padding to my bucket, and I had just fiberglassed it, so that was the only time I wore it that evening.

    Thanks bro!!! I am winding out of custom mando for the time being, all I have left to do is build a helmetand make a mold of it, so I can make one whenever I want. Other than that, my next project is either a fullsize scout bile, or a skiff that works. (kinda)

    Thanks Ordeyn!!! Yeah the interview was fun, if I had known they were EW, I probably would have freaked out. I was being checked out by the channel 5 newscrew (local san diego) but they decided against an interview.
