I called fatmans and it sounds like they have the set up i need.

I have actually ben to there shop a couple years ago and got to meet brent , the owner, he was a gret guy and so was the guys that worked for him. after touring the shop and talking to the guys there i would not have any problem buying there stuff. i think everyone there puts an effort into there work and likes there job.
