    Nice turnaround...I'm sure your passenger traffic is pleased with the view. Great early fall setting.

    Charlie,

    It's nice to see the "in progress" and the "as finished" photos. It gives us all an idea of how you got there and I know I'm not the only one interested in that.

    As usual, great stuff.

    Don

    WOW Charlie, Just shows what can be done. A real inspiration to those of us that are at the "before" stage still.
