    I failed to bring the point that I have done other comps like TTC and took first all around. Not to mention this is the last season for the frame and sheet metal (new project in the shop now) so I could care less about hurting them and just keep the drive train togather. I have watched for many years now and I want a turn.The timing is dead on for me and I will give my best:grin: .

    Sounds good so far

    Lets see pics.

    Also a breif employment history, first born child birth certificate, and a disclaimer from friends and family stating not to kill you until after the comp is over as you will be spending more time with your truck in the next few monthes than them. LOL:rotfl: :thumb:

    If you do get in please, please, please, Spend a bunch of time washing, polishing and touching up painted items.
    This will help you trust me. Judges like clean appearing truck. Then spend countless hours checking every nut bolt ect. and I mean everyone of them.

    Working on the pics but I am not computer savy and cant make them fit. I do have the wifes suport but Im not sure she knows what I plan on doing to the credit card if I get in. The nuts and bolts sound good as it would not be the first time some thing like that has bit me in the can, but paint. Lets put it this way it would need more then paint to look good, thats why the new project is in the works.

    It does not have to be or look perfect but some touch up here and there or just even coloring will help....
