That looks awesome Charlie.

For the top of the fan inlet, I'd use some wire mesh and glue it inside of the inlet about 1/4" down. THat way it isn't visible, but won't allow things too get in.

Sorry, I think this is ironic... but don't be too hard on them:) Mistakes happen, if they are willing to get it right...then that's good business.

It was a 4 letter word thats used every day. im not being hard on them . but when you spend $40.00 on something you want it to be right the first time. I know mistakes happen thats why i well still use them. :)

OMG Charlie! That is so AWESOME! I love it and thanks for thinking of me! :wink: I have to show my dad this next time I see him! He will love it as well! He grew up on a farm so he will definitely appreciate it as do I!

BTW, you even go the spelling right! :)
