Welcome to the family.

I wish you the all the best with your project. I realize it's a long flight in a 750, but, if you ever get the chance to visit the Zenith factory please take the time to stop by our builder assist facility too. We are their newest and nearest builder assist facility and like to have visitors. We are right here in Mexico, Mo., not far from them as well.

Take care and good luck,

Bill Carter
