    I am member of the Mitsubishi team it turns out, but yes I have access to that stuff I guess. I need to see about getting Spicer 35 spline stubs for my HP Dana 60, electric fans, and there is one other thing I can't think of at this second, ha. I wonder if we have an SVO parts setup. I could use some SVO injectors, if they are a good discount. I will find out sometime.


    I already have a list of tools and things I need, and my toolbox is already full :doah:I just got money from a little graduation party we had yesterday and the Snap-On guy comes tomorrow... evil I tell you


    and here is my toolbox at the end of my bay.

    Glad I went with craftsman tools so far. I already used some of the obscure items I wouldn't have if I went with Snap-On.

    No worries about the Snap On payment, I'm not gonna buy anything unless I can afford to outright. Only things I want to get from him are Torque Sticks and maybe a wheel lock key set, I already did a rotation today where we had trouble locating the lock key.

    wait that tool box isnt magnetic...:D Feels good to be a working fool huh? IVe been outta high school 8 months and working full time for 6-6 1/2 months. im so glad i decided to start working rather than go to college, was definetly the right choice for me. i almost went to UTI for the nascar program and cutom fab but i decided it wasnt for me. i love working on my truck and doing custom 1 off type things, motor swao etc but i hate standard service and repair on new cars. Not everyday youll be swapping motors and what not. but hey at least you get to wrench and this is a step in the right direction toward doing your own thing later on. ok im rambling so let me just say good job man:waytogo:

    its not an 89-91. I realized when I posted the picture the crappy quality of the camera phone makes it look like one. It was a G20 van in on a trade in check.
