Great progress guys!

I seriously can't wait for the gas price to return to normal so I can do another YouTube video update on this project like I did last year.

As i said in the other thread, gas prices aren't going to drop below 3.5 dollars. Just take the train.

I think he means this time of year, cause it looks like on the last pic some buildings are covered with snow on the roof, when its just the color of the roof.
I had to look twice myself actually

Btw, what's the twin towers in the back of the last picture called?
looks nice.

yeah. From what I see reflective glass is "IN". Quite a few towers have this cladding. Thy're like giant mirrors.
