I gave you props. :wink:

I might post a few ones that I took later on. One of our techs here actually downloaded everything on the memory card to his computer.

Brandon, c'mon down. I'm here from 9-5 Monday through Friday. I've even got some Subaru parts sitting right here behind me. We are going to try and make this steering linkage work for Paul's car.

Thanks for the welcome all. :beer:
