    Just thought I would post up again.... I used to be part of this forum since like '05 or something, maybe '04 or '03 but then I realized I wasn't registered anymore... registered in '08 but haven't really been into too much lately cause I have some PTSD problems and shit.
    Now its going to be a big part of my life again, hopefully I will be re-opening my small shop here in Arkansas and do it all over again.
    We will see... so just wanted to reintroduce myself and if you need anything, help or whatever.. let me know. :cool:

    thanks Injen... I am trying to... I didn't get ptsd from the fighting, it was from getting hurt.
    The whole transition from being a locked on devil dog to a weak and fat guy that can barely walk some days that got to me and still bother me. It sucks but I am trying to do some things to get me motivated to be happy again and Honda's and motors is going to be it hopefully.
    I also do vinyl stickers, mostly commercial but still a lot of small ones for people all over.

    the love of a good woman can heal a lot of emotional wounds. as long as you have a best friend, you can make great leaps and bounds to a full recovery. it sounds cheesy, but it works.

    good luck
