    Looks great /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif How do you get away with working on your rig in the driveway?? /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gifI got shut down by my homeowners association about a month ago. I can't even work on my rig anymore. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif We are looking for some land to build a house and a shop on though, so maybe in 6 months I will be back at it. /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif Damn old biddies /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    NO! my wife is just reading a piece of paper no new baby here. I have my 4 and 6 year old boys /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    ZAKK I have yet to put all the coner braces in but will be doing that real soon. As for the rad. I left it in the frt. due to the fact that the panel behind the frt. seats comes out so I can put a small bench there so my kids can ride. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    What do neighborhood kids have to say about that mammoth in your driveway? Do they think you own some kind of monster truck and are trilled just to stand by it? I know I would've been when I was a kid.
