    Do what I do when I work on my plastic models: When I get frustrated with a project/model, I just put it down and walk away before I get pissed!!

    I come back to it later, sometimes much later!

    exactly, i sometimes find it relaxing to hit the punching bag, or get a BFH and beat the crap out of something that doesn't matter. In this case, do NOT hit your truck.

    your truck speaks so highly of you though.

    Just this morning I was thinking how much I hated my POS 98 Blazer. Yesterday, the door started "quacking" when I opened it, for no obvious reason, no changes in anything. I pulled part of the fender out by hand, and the quack went away.

    I love electrical, though. I look for electrical things I can do on my truck.
    If all that were wrong with my truck were electrical, I'd be much happier. Count yourself lucky... sort of...

    well electrical is the last of whats left. engine crapped out had to fix it. Po used tin to make floor seem alittle stable. yea like that would last. so ive fixed just about everything on it besides hooking all the electrical crap. i mean i love working with electrical crap but when you have a wiring harness with **** going everywhere(not to mention) PO hacked half of the **** off so dont know where some of the crap goes its kinda a pain in the ass. cody

    I actually enjoy looking through the Haynes and Chilton manual tracking down wiring and figuring out what is what. yeah, i'm weird, whatever.

    Fock, i changed the font and don't know what the hell i did.
