Many, many people and some great companies have helped with this restoration project, so here's my chance to say THANKS!

My beautiful and talented wife Kristi has been amazingly patient during this project. I couldn't have done it without her support.

My good friend and neighbor Ed Case probably put in several hundred hours of labor, plus advice and encouragement. Other great friends such as Mac McMurray, Adolpho Aranda, Tomas Rodriguez, Phil Tatro and actress Jennifer Lawrence also contributed.
