I hadn't thought about taking away from the other two students if I was to ask for something different. Regardless, I appreciate the help and after reading this, the BB build doesn't seem so important for a first time build.

Thanks again.
In thinking that i may have not expressed my thoughts well enough for you to understand...

The instructor that I was referencing does teach how to braze up a BB in his classes, just not a lugless one. He starts with the ST, then continues with the main frame (and DT), then ends up with the CS while keeping the drop outs and wheel on center. Again, it not that he skips over the BB. He chooses a style that takes into account the time at hand. Andy.
