    Branndon's post about cutting his fenders made me want to post some pics :P

    It "only" took 3+ years to finish building the bastard... Sorry for the crappy pics, I'll get some better ones this weekend. I took these a few weeks ago but keep forgetting to get some during the day. It turned out smaller than I was expecting, but that's kind of a good thing since it's still fairly tall.

    Final touches are this weekend, Air/Fuel gauge to help get it tuned right and some heat protection to keep from roasting the interior.

    No need to get all pissy, I have a trip to Pismo planned for next weekend. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif Should be a nice easy weekend to break everything in. For the record, I wheeled the piss out of it for 3 years prior to parking it for this buildup.

    Next weekend, ummm, 13th-15th. It's primarily an ATV run, but my brother really wants me to bring the truck so he's helping me get the kinks worked out so it can be there.

    Well, I'm married, so getting any ass is pretty much a pipe dream for me. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Besides that, at Pismo you gotta have real good game (not me) or a brand new truck that's lifted stupid-tall with big blingy rims (not me either) to get any action. /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif

    I have no qualms with scratching and denting it, I only painted it because it was a butt-ass ugly homebrew two-tone and my wife hated it even worse. I'm not so sure that I'll be jumpin on the "hack all the body panels off because they have some dents" bandwagon very soon though. /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    You bet, just need a rollcage and some sliders before tackling anything like that. Not to mention a dozen or so trips to easier locales to make sure that everything works like it's supposed to.

    Damn who did your fender cutting? He did a damn good job... /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif

    Don't think I'm going to make it to Pismo with you though... Need to finish getting my truck ready for the Hammaz!

    Yep, whoever that was did a damn fine job! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif I kinda figured that you'd be working on getting ready for the hammers. No worries, next time maybe. /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif

    If you want to help me get some body protection installed then I think that could be arranged. /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif
