Thank you Gary! ~ I must admit I'm not a prolific builder & I don't sell. Regarding the LPG's, there's mountains of info on CBN but if I were to offer any advice I'd say select plates in old steel or aluminium, rather than some of these modern alloy ones. Also avoid cutting them if possible to retain the integrity, & use surface mounted mag pickups not piezo's. Just my opinion of course :))
