    Yeah they're in there, that's for sure. When I was trying to drill into the stud to use the EZ-Out, it would just crumble. There was no welding anything lol.

    Some of them aren't paying attention. I get waves all the time from a mix of people but some are so focused on the road, they don't see you. That's really all the wave is, "I see you".
