Hi Larry,
I have composite experience. I worked at Yankee Composites in Warren Springs, CA and Composites Universal Group in Scappoose, OR. They are very innovative at Comp Universal. They have a large facility. I've contacted the owners but have not heard back yet. They are in contact with Elon.

Hello Larry,
I support this post and what you are doing here entirely. This is serious.

I have posted 4 ideas from my experience and research and they have been sent to the composite industry along with other officials. You can contact me at thebilljordanproject@gmail if you want.
