Welcome and congrats on buying a great coach. Something about pink, I have a pink leather sofa. Wife likes it so guess I'm stuck with it!
Definately post pictures and ask away. There are some reallly great guys here and lots of knowledge. There are a couple of us meeting in Santa Fe next month if you want to drive up and visit.

Welcome Ross and Jill,

You will find this to be a friendly and helpful bunch.

If you can make it to one of the unofficial rallys, then I recommend it. The folks are friendly, most bring tools and know how, and the potluck food is wonderful.

I am jealous that we won't be able to make to Santa Fe.
