Re: Utility build

Mike! I know its not funny to you since you had to fix it but your line along with that picture of the two holes just had me cracking up. "Sometimes it astounds me just how badly something can go." The fix sure is time consuming which is always the frustrating part of it for me. Thanks for sharing, ...
