Ryan does great fab work, wish I were there to watch & supervise
This could have been done at Fort Meade, With about 25 supervisors.

Ryan measured and re-measured to make sure that we would get the most use out of the new compartment, he had to make some minor cuts to clear objects in the area that we had to work with, his son Grant supervised as Ryan made the crucial cuts on the compartment.




Shown here is the trial fit of the new compartment after the minor trimming was done, it revealed the new storage area that I will have after everything is completely mounted.

Great idea and great looking work. You definitely have the right man doing the job for you! I guess Ryan has discovered that the Sawzall pretty well drowns out the snoring going on right above his head.....
