    He demo'ed and re-installed a kitchen in our Parrish's field house that gets used by the Ladies Club during sporting and other events. The old kitchen was the 40 year old original, it was 4 base cabinets, counter top & sink. His new kitchen includes 4 base cabinets, 4 upper wall cabinets, counter top and sink. He also added a refurbished water chiller fountain and a utility sink for the janitor to use. He put in a lot of legwork chasing down donations and discounts on the building materials and tons of time writing up his work plan. The main part of the project was broken into 2 work days for the Scout Troop, one each for demo and build, thankfully we have a handful of troop Dads that work in the building trades. I took care of all of the electrical & plumbing updates between the work days (2 weeks apart). The finished project came out great, the Parish is thrilled with it! The Eagle Board of Review was impressed with the quality and detail of his plan and after work summary.

    Hey, I'm a new user, (and a pretty young kid), and i just got my first truck. It it a 79 F150 custom with a short bed, But i have a lot of work to do for it. I am currently removing the dash pad (because it is faded and cracked) but i need a little help.

    I know that i have to take off the gauges and glove box but for the love of God I can't get off this plastic front dash piece.

    I have the original radio and heater. Any help would be appreciated. Thank You.
