    OMG!

    I step away to concentrate on work for a week, and BAM!! My baby is at a whole new level!  You guys are rockin’ it!  I’m absolutely beyond thrilled!  Can’t wait to see it in person.  I can already feel the fatigue in my cheeks from grinning like a fool in love!

    Wanted to make sure we knocked out everything above the headliner before Doug covers it up.

    New flap seals and grommets for the fresh air box directional flaps. F62E8AB1-7164-4F84-A568-6AD3A6EE58542FDC73B6-C2D8-4ECF-B90C-54039E50654B

    Found a correct washer in the KCW stash. 190B52FB-F383-4C95-8FBD-629AC75041FF

    Blasted, painted, assembled with fresh seal, and installed the front flap.66E7E641-422F-4137-B847-8D44A71B32AB

    New seal in the fresh air box also.26D180AC-F06B-46C7-BC8B-AC94EEF4D0726FD2B064-611C-4C7A-9177-FD109FA9A659A2CDF1E2-F515-4BA0-9AD3-F4C08E68769D
