    Haha my bad this topic has me really crazy seeing as I've been installing walls for quite some time with cr8 and the thought of everything I've done could have been more properly installed really really drove me nuts..

    It seems like its really apples to apples and the decision to use #57 is really just a smart business move..

    I don't thoroughly understand the subject at all but at least I have confirmed that using cr8 is acceptable..

    If anyone has other advantages to using #57 as an srw base it would benefit a lot of us if they could provide their knowledge!

    Until I thoroughly understand #57 as a wall base I will continue what I know and pry for some answers.. I may experiment on a small wall to first hand experience the use and feasibility of this system and MAYBE I will understand it a little better.

    Any tips or tricks to use #57 would be appreciated. Thank you very much to everyone who participated in this thread it is satisfying knowing others out there are as enthusiastic and inspired by the work they do..and the information acquired through this thread is extremely invaluable.
