    getting close but kinda running out of momentum. Looking for some one who would like to help each other out
    kinda a kick in the butt lets go get the project done kinda thing. I have all kind of tools welder ect..
    Oh and I have use of a Dealership on Saturdays.
    I know I need some help to get this thing done and you may need some help with yours to get ready for the summer.
    Let me know what you think.

    This is actually a great idea, everyone needs someone around to keep them motivated during long projects. I went one step better, My roommate also wheels and builds trucks (in fact, hes responsible for me doing this stuff). We both continually work on trucks in an effort to one-up each other.

    Bo,

    I'd be gald to help as much as possible. Did you want to work on it weeknights, or just weekends. I can't start my rig until around mid April or so as it's still my plow rig for this winter. But I'd be glad to help you out. Just let me out.

    BTW, did you get my PM about getting the tires/topper?

    Feel free to give me a call if you still have my #.

    Well, I'll trades you some tools for the UAV :whistle:

    Keep a look out for the Sears adds. They've been having some good sales on tool sets.

    Thanks everyone for the helping hand. I will get a small list together
    of what I need help with or just moral support. And get back with you all
    on this. If you need some help let me know. If not I can stand there and drink
    beer/soda and stare at the work that needs to be done. You know sometimes
    the best motivation is just B.S.ing about wheeling.........:laugh:

    That Kegerator is awesome! You ever do the lift last weekend, Mark?

    OH! I've got a great lead on a job. If I get it make sure to dig some of those parts out of your garage for me! :D

    That's a no on the lift. Got my stereo and the TH400 kickdown button hooked up in the K30. Then took it out for a test run and found out the radiator is majorly leaking. H3ll, if it's not one darn thing it's another. ANyway, depending on weather, I'd like to do the lift this weekend. If I do, I'll be looking for some help (insert wink here).

    As for the kegerator, I was getting my 2nd glass this evening. As I was almost finished, the keg went dry. Guess I need to get another one:D

    I don't see us getting any more than a little dusting. Although, I wish we'd get a foot or so. I really could use the plow $$ for my toys...er business:D
