I voted you both in. But I am biased and when you two are the last two Ben's Harley gets my vote.

So Long story short, if you follow the above posts I was part of this years PC contest and eventaully was voted out.I was extremly blessed and fortunate enough to catch the eye of the founders of the Born Free Show and was asked to be an invited builder for BF 11 at the last minute due to one of the other invited builders stepping out of the show. I had stepped away from the build for about 2 weeks after I got voted out and had a family vacation planned 3 weeks out from the show so when I got the call it was game on .Well it was a wild ride full of every emotion possible but I never imagined that I would win triumph best pre unit but also be selected to go to Japan and this year Mooneyes show. So the moral of the story is, build what you have a vision and passion for, build it for yourself, not for anyone else or their approval and don't quit !
