    well I havent worked on the truck in a week or 2...
    did get the fullsize jimmy for parts and strip it...

    so now last night I get home and eat dinner with wife and son.. then went outside and replaced both window cranks.... now they roll up and down so nice... something about even fixing the stupid stuff gives that happy joy joy feeling....


    next is to take the steering column out all the way to the gearbox...
    tomorrow is to remove or start removing the clutch pedal assembly...

    gonna try and get the mechanical pedals out and get my hydro stuff in and newer year column before I bother trying to figure out how the hell I am going to pull the tranny and xfer in my driveway to replace the clutch and bellhousing for hydro conversion... :doah:

    i know what ya mean... ;)

    its tough in my dinosauric era to get motivated.. i go in binges where i work on the truck every waking moment for 3 weeks, then i back off for a week or 2... my job really kicks my arse most of the time.. tough to put those extra hrs in...

    i was so psyched the other day after finally putting tunes back in the truck after like 5 months... been trying to get the floor herculined for a month now.. but i've only patched 2 of the 4 holes in the floor.. need to get on that... :doah: :rolleyes: :wink1:
