Project #3 - Restore Froggy

Well, I finally got a chance to pick up my newest VLX from Froggy. Thanks to 03ACE for meeting in Nashville. I was there for a leadership meeting and was actually in the middle of giving a speech when he text me he was in the parking lot. Wish I would have had more time to spend and even bought you lunch for your trouble...thanks bro!
