I still have both and may eventually post images - both are crude, but they're mine and I'm proud of them.

So… It’s been two months. Unfortunately, my six-year-old daughter had pneumonia most of June (was in the hospital for 4 nights). She recovered in time for the heat of July, so working in the garage was not pleasant. I did manage to...
