    Welcome Jason,
    Anyone who owns or likes 2 Doors sounds like good people. Enjoy this crazy hobby, take your time, built it right and don't hesitate to ask questions. We were all newbies at some point and like to share our combined knowledge with new members. Send us some pix when you get started on the build.
