    Here is the first of 5 pics, this is when we moved in 3 months ago and you can see the old, low retaining wall held there with sticky creosoe covered railroad ties /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    [​IMG]

    This is a close up of the ugly railroad ties ( and Jennie a.k.a. Prego /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif )

    here is after 3 weeks of digging and busting rock hell ( the property is an ols riverbed.) and bringing in 500 blocks and 5 yards of dirt.

    here is neighbors watching and helping me level the topsoil.

    I like the way the neighbors all stand behind the fence watching you work......

    yes, appartments suck. i remember when i had an appartment in denver a couple guys did a motor swap right out in the parking. i bet the management loved that!

    you know your wife is understanding when she lets you do 2 lift kits and a motor swap on the back patio /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
