Welcome from an old-timer in Florida. I don't know that I can add much to what Pat and Mike have said other than you've joined a great group, and it won't be long before you realize the rewards of what we do at OPR. A word of warning: it's addictive. And the interaction among the people who are active on the forum is both informative and great fun. A few members keep watch for anyone who needs help and jump in with suggestions and observations. Once you've been here a while, you'll probably get teased and be subjected to some good humored abuse, but the fun breaks up the hard work of making these tough restorations ready to go home again. I suspect you'll be very glad you joined.
I'm happy that you're with us, and I look forward to seeing you on the forum.
