Firstly, outstanding work, Black. If you hadn't written that you had done that to yourself I would never have guessed.
Secondly, at $500 a week take home for a draftsman, you should have left long ago. The ones I deal with make at least half of that again at the entry level. Good for you for moving on to something bigger and better. The sky, as they say, is the limit. Get you some.
