Mainly, because they can...Building industry is booming again, They are busy as hell and people are waiting in line. The county has to get into it too ...because they can. Required a permit to dig a new well,,,$100.00 and another permit to seal the old well,,,another $100.00,,,now what ****es me off is that none of it was inspected! They won't let me do it myself so that's gotta be done by the driller. I believe that's taxation without representation. Sorry for the rant!

Got the frame for the 37 ford pickup up on the frame table. It only has 4 of the uprights for now. The next step is a bit of math to get my desired ride height.
