    Now to get the electrical ran and fire up the 454 for the first time. Can't wait - wonder if my wife would notice if I disappear for a week? /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif

    Thanks for the compliments. I'm gonna focus on getting the electical done first, then plumb the engine and get her fired up. Then I can work on getting the interior in and all the outside stuff done. Can't wait to get home, I might just be taking a few days off work to get deep in this project.

    I won't be racing either Burt, but will be fun to see who fires first. Either way, I'm gonna be happy that one of us finally gets to be running again.

    Kind of a lengthy explanation would be needed to answer that, but partly right on both. I think the reality is he is about broke and having to focus on his car lot jobs to survive - mine was a job he should not have undertaken. There are some things that need to be fixed for the truck's paint job to be acceptable but for now I'm gonna get it driveable and then have a trusted friend make the corrections.

    It's just used for fun, driving to work once or twice a week, moving stuff around my place, moving hay, driving in mud and snow, not much in the way of rocks around here.

    Glad you've finally got it home. It looks great Mark! You will be able to drive that around in style once you are finished. /forums/images/graemlins/bow.gif /forums/images/graemlins/bow.gif /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif
