    Not sure why I didn't think of pulling one door back. I do like how the beak doors of the Thunderfly pull away toward the tree. Seems like the full doors come more straight down.

    Yes, missed the snow storm by a day. Got some fleuries over the weekend.

    The insulated UQP worked way better than I expected. Built it as a Summer Option. Proved way more capable.
