    Removable doors and fender trimming are on the list this weekend. That probably includes moving the mirrors to the fenders. Might do some dash work. Had the awesome realization I can get my little brother working with me too! :D

    Nice truck to start with! Save yourself the money for the lift for a while! I'd love to have a 6.2 with a manual, but they are few and mostly shot. Are you planning on a Banks turbo?

    I'm just looking at small mods right now, but I'm sure you bastages will talk me into more. :rolleyes: After all my bills are paid, I have almost $300 a month to spend on fuel and parts. :doah:


    Someday, I'd like 38's. :D

    And starter fried. Got to a stop sign, and it wound up to eleventy-billion mph, and held there until it smoked to death and died. :( I think I'm going to buy a fire extinguisher.

    Bought a creeper, really long extension cord (I live in the top of a duplex), and a work light. :D

    Stickers here as well. Will apply tomorrow.

    Sore from pushing truck. Backwards.

    Starter is much larger than anticipated. Scared. Need to borrow Ratch's helmet.

    Got some fender material removed today. Just on the back. I got a little carried away with my first sawsall experience. :haha: Still having mysterious electrical issues. Pulled a bunch of bastard wires that led to nothing. The joys of meth...

    I'm thinking about bobbing both ends, but not yet.
