Because so many of us can't connect to MikeInside tutorials of about just anything we could ever ask about building or something else here is the main Link to MikeInside, bookmarking this myself if I need a refresher (and I do, often) hope this helps anyone who couldn't get to MikeInsde main site tutorials used to help build etc. in TS2. Many step by step instructions even for pros who have forgotten some things.
