Hope others find it useful as well. I found a Thread line of a fellow back in 2010 called "New to the Forum." A lot of initial information was passed around. Hank Jarrett suggested to one of the commentators that he start a thread line identifying his aircraft and himself and do the following: "AJ, 1) Start a thread called AJ's restoration. 2) Take a picture of a part and post it.
