      Thanks! It's a pile, but it looks OK from about 10 ft. away. Runs pretty good and I'm always making little improvements. Super fun to drive.

      Yeah, certainly! I'm always trying to get any DSM owners to join me for car shows and stuff. Spring is just around the corner. If you need some in person help with something, lemme know.
