    @farlo, thanks, and just wait my friend. All in good time
    @BG, that was my next course of action lol. In my off road ventures I have seen many washes with bundles of old, tore down barbed wire... That would have worked great (risk of tetanus aside), but I decided to give this a go. This was free, and didn't take any gas. Free= win.
    Keep checking back pplz, I'm excited to get started on the second half.

    GAAAHHHH I'm super $(%*$ng pissed! My package was here. It was in the apt complex. But since paypal didn't put the apt # on the shipping address, it is now being returned. So I'm going to be chewing someone's ass today. Thanks Paypal, ya jerk offs.

    This is exactly why when I lived in an apartment I had everything delivered to work. ..well, that and the one time I had something delivered to the apartment and it was left outside my door it..well, let's just say that by the time I got home ~4-5 hours later, it was nowhere to be seen.

    yea I usually have stuff delivered to work as well, but mostly so it's not left outside if it's raining or snowing. My wife and I rent an apt that's part of my parent's house, so no matter where it gets left it'll get to me lol

    It's a Christmas miracle!!!! Don't ask me how, but somehow my package went from "Undeliverable as addressed, return to sender." To, delivered! Yeah I totally don't get it. But hey whatever I'm stoked. Progress will continue!
    I'll be posting pics later on today, after I get home. You'll never guess in a million years what it is. Muahaha

    haha no it's plastic something. It's 4th quality medical skeleton, so it's life-size, durable, and has some decent weight to it.
    No, it will really have some decent weight to it when I'm done :p
