Wow, some good questions and points are being raised. To be clear, I'm the OP but not the builder. I'm certain he'll be back here to answer some of your questions. I invited him to join this forum and participate. Watch for his posts in this thread, there's one now on the first page. He may take over when comfortable posting pics, etc. I talked with him on a phone and thought this project may be exciting to check out.
Builder's Name: "v8madhatter"
