    So Jesse's been ****in with his truck all this week tryin to get a carb tuned. Today, about every 45 minutes we'd hear him at the other end of the shop tryin to do burnouts...He runs a pretty damn healthy big block 454 with aluminum heads and NOS. 100 shot I think. It rattles the shop when he romps on it...So I took some pictures-

    It's kind hard to tell in the pictures, but the axle wrap is sooo scary I thought I was gonna have to run for cover first time I saw it...pinion prolly wraps up 15*+ when he gets on it.... :blink:


    And these are just some cool shafts I've put together....Dual 42* CV goin on a huge Superduty and a two piece thing goin on a buggy with Rockwells-

    LOL! Was that you on the phone the other day? Good $h!t.

    Anyways, next weekend is my last weekend here, and the last weekend I'll have a shop to build stuff in for awhile. So I've got a few diff covers to build and your x-member is on the list too. :)

    :whistle:
    Yep, that was me and Jesse conspiring to give you heartburn :D Last in your home shop? Maybe you can talk Jesse into letting you hang around every so often after work. Of course you don't want to piss off the new boss though...... Are you moving closer to work? Hey, and who is the guy pushing the broom in that one pic? :whistle: If you are the one shortening my shaft I sent you, tell Jesse to spring for some good gray paint this time. He ran out last time and I got black. How and I going to bling bling pimp daddy my driveshaft as a HAD if it looks like every other shop? Maybe I should chrome it...... :haha:

    You gonna peel your rainbow sticker off your rear bumper for me and past it on there? You might as well give me that pink bow you have on your antenna at the same time.... :D
