We did have some challenges in the second half. We started to experience some near-term net order weakness, which are causing OEMs to reduce their second half production schedules. Although now operation is stable, the Imperial consolidation has been delayed by about six to eight months. We’ve put it on hold for about 60 days till we get the plant down in Texas that we control and we’ve modified some of the building construction that need to be done. So that’s been the jag in our performance in the first half of the year but that would get much better in the second half.Demand for aluminum wheels in the quarter continued to remain strong, our plants were running seven days a week all quarter long. Our new capacity, we’ve gone up about 5,000 wheels a week in the last six weeks and we’re going to add about another 5,000 wheels a week coming forward to next six weeks. So we’re going to get ahead of the capacity, a situation there for the first time in over two years.
