Looks like I "only" got screwed out of $103 by BRG. Order placed in Jan, one inquiry reply from "Rebecca" a month ago, then silence.

Had to move all the cars out of the garage for some work I was doing. It made me laugh at how ridiculous my Sequoia looked next to OUR "regular" cars :)

Congratulations. That is a major upgrade and it takes some ability to get it done.
