    for those who even know what im talking about or have asked,

    i decided the hell with the roadster project last night, I have way to many things going on, and trying to build a really nice custom truck, while aslo building a off road truck..while also fixing up a blazer is hard!

    so I decided to just do the metal work and flat black it and get the thing on the road, threw the cab on today and went and got some more parts and a purdy new radiator:D

    plan is to have the 86 ready to paint next weekend, I ll shoot the paint , find the interior pieces I need and get it ready for its next owner,

    for the 71, im on a bet to see if I can actually get both trucks drivable in two weeks, so I should have some tire roasting pics up soon :)

    tools needed..red bull and motivation!.."and time"

    If I took the time to do things as nice and clean as you do, I'd never get anything finished.

    lol

    I think thats why this is not finished

    :1zhelp:

    tonight I finished boxing the last piece of the rear, and made mounts for the fuel tank..finally figured the brakes out :I think.. but it seems like the one piece of factory line I am using is leaking at the fitting:mad: so back to auto zone I go..

    put the water pump on, alternator and played with the wiring as well, I need to hide the wiring and its looking like it going to be a headache

    just a zillion things to do..not to mention in the same to weekes I plan to get the 86 drivable,

    the caddy seats are a challange and it looks like I will want a tilt coulum for more clearance, using 3/16 for a firewall is a big regret now..alot of cut off wheels to say the least

    hmm its 4:41 in the morning, my sister is in vegas and the nieghbors are out of town...off the the ginder I go!
