    Ok here is the deal. I have had the K5 4 years now all of last year it has been in the garage doing mod after mod. So this year it has been a wheeling machine could not ask for more except not being able to drive it to the store or even work. So after last Saterdays meet and greet I felt like a tard coming to the get together with the K5 in tow. So I have spent two days modifying the PS pump to flow a little better. So I took the K5 out for about 20 min crusing around the hood. So I'm going to take the K5 to work tomarow:wink1: So if you all can wish me luck on my adventure to and from work. I will post up if I made it or not when I get home.

    Good luck man. I'm all for getting the truck out and driving it. That is the only reason I try to keep it somewhat street legal, I love driving it. Now if I can just get this TBI to run.

    Make sure you pack a shovel to clean the ricers off the bumper. Good luck with the drive-white knuckle time.

    Don't worry 'bout it Bo, the drive over to John's on sat. was the 2nd longest trip mine's made in the two years i've been building it:doah: But i'm all about not having to trailer mine anywhere, especially since i don't own a trailer or truck to tow it with:doah: .

    Ah, so me and John aren't the only DQ's in this bunch.

    Maybe you'll get lucky and make the 9:00 news. :D

    I wish mine was a DQ, i don't even have any space for it at my house. Sad to say it sits out in the employee parking lot at work. Between my & my girlfriend were up to 7 vehicles now:crazy:. The k5 has made a lot of trips back and forth into the shop, does that count as being driven:D

    Naw, we call Bo's K5 a TRAILER Queen.

    I love to drive my truck, that's going to be my big concession for future mods.

    Well all I made it to and from work today. With no problems at all I even pass two cops I thought for sure they were going to pull me over for no mirrors. But they did not even give the Puncher a second look. Sure felt good to drive the K5 agine.

    for mirrors you only need driver's side and center or one on each side and no center.

    You could cheat and put little tiny ones on like somebody else I know.:whistle: that way they dont get hit by rocks. :rolleyes:

    I believe colorado law says that you only need one rearward facing mirror as long as the view is relatively unobstructed. You are good to run with no doors on a K5.
