    Don't even get me started on my list...it doesn't end either. I think Leadfoot has it worse than us though. He has 2 Chevy's with issues...This damn rain is the pits. Of course it's Monday and it's beautiful out!! /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    Sounds like we are not the only one's with rain issues. Never fails that when the weekend comes around that it rains. If it don't rain then I need to spend time with the Fam and that pretty much ruins gettin things done on the Blazer. /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    We just got mine back today!!!! And my wheels are here (finally /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif ). They came in today. I found them in the yard when i got back from running errands. So now we have to get them painted (they are bare steel) and get the tires mounted and get them on the truck. /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif I'm not real sure what eklse Wayne has planned before the UCP run. We did get it herculined about 2 weeks ago. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif That turned out really nice. Oh and I guess I need to order me a new sticker from Jeff for my new bug shield /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif I think after today, Wayne won't take me to his friend's house any more. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    Well lets just say I put off welding in that ORD frame repair plates to the steering box area. I feel lucky to just be here. But it is done now. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif They didn't fit so I had to re-fabricate the shape of them using the original plates. A buddy of mine works in a welding shop so we did it there. Let me tell you, It is soooo nice to use a shop with the right tools. Beets the ole driveway and garage any day. Thanks Jon fer the loan of the shop. I owe you one big time. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif Well at least I can drive it now. I gotta replace the PS pump now though!
