Thanks, I really appreciated it. One of the main reasons I posted this thread is because my insurance company wanted to see what all I had done to it. The pictures alone do not do justice for how much time and money was really spent to make all of this happen. The only thing the insurance company can't help me replace is the time lost. Fingers are crossed.

Thanks a lot, really. Found out today that the insurance company paid $9500 on the claim so I'm happy as I could be I guess. Time to drop some cash all over again...but once a jeeper always a jeeper

I had to delete them due to WF only allowing you to post so many pictures throughout your entire history on here.

You just don't know how many times I've wished for that. And it was one of them punk ass white kids that wants to be black with his shorts all draggin the ground hat all cocked to the side, tattoos and a little earring . I'd have loved to take justice in my own hands.
