Added some final touches to the Armadillo, and my diamond plate finally came in the mail.

Very nice. And you, and some others here in Texas, seem quite fond of Automated Transfer Machines.

I picked up the tiles at an import store here in Laredo. They were made in Mexico, unlicensed I'm sure. :)

Very sweet Benroy. That is the size I’m going for on my next one. :thumbsup:


Would you know the Fender to Fender measurements?

And how come you did not use the big red piece of plywood for the floor. You know the one against the wall in your garage :)

Almost all of your pics are now missing. I really got a lot of ideas on things from your build journal, can you repost the images, or edit the links to them?

I redid the links. Facebook did something funny and it broke all the links.

Recently added a new outlet above the cabinets to be able to charge phones and not have wires in the way, even has USB outlets. Cabinet knobs got added after only a couple trips. Also, put some LED strips inside the cabinets.
