    well, the major damage came about when I got to the top of a hill climb (couldnt see what was up top) and I nailed a tree. it was pretty funny.

    anyhow, i just got the replacement parts I need, so i'm going to fix it back up, so i can do the same thing next weekend.

    Sounds like its time to either tube it or place a standing order. Looks like fun though.

    Well, I'm going to replace the sheetmetal. and build a front external roll cage , and for the back it will be inside. should be pretty neat. I might draw it up in autocad tonite and see how much it's going to weigh and such.

    also need some new bumpers. so will go get steel prices as well.

    i had the parts laying around and i do (or should) plow with this truck until tomorrow -- maybe i'm picking up a 1990 35004x4 stake body dump.

    if thats the case, i wont have a shell left on the k5 after a couple more nights....
