    Yeah, I had my truck towed up to an exhaust shop to have a flowmaster system installed. So the guy shows up with a flatbed. I was a little concerned, but it turned out ok. It was pretty close to 15 feet tall since the deck on the flatbed was already up to my eye(I am 6'3") So yeah it was huge. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    I'v got tons more to do, just need to get everything put together. I had my brother tow it here so I could work on and to bring all the stuff I needed, he said he brought most of....or half so I basicly get to finish mounting my beadlocks. doesn't do any good to have 2 of the 3 brakelines, no firewall (but he brought the brake and clutch set up but forgot the steering column. He said to quit bitching and to just finisht he TBi swap and fire it up...then he stopped mid way through and said...nevermind I forgot the two optimas. So I figured I could atleast do the dash and gauges..which he forgot the gauges. Well I'll finish the bumpers...he forgot the metal. I then could do my front spring bushings...nope he forgot the jack stands and hole saw. Looks like I'm making a run back that way soon so I can actually do something.
    he told me "just go buy what you need", I said WTF I already bought it once.

    The part that pisses me off the most was i sent him an email two weeks ago with a list of what I needed. I even said i could come that way to box it up, he said should be no problems...he didn't start loading it up til the night before /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif
    so i went from being away from it for 5 months without being able to work onit ro see it...now I can atleast see it,LOL

    woah that sucks. I'd be really mad if he forgot all that stuff! Do you think he did it on purpose or anything? It's kind of weird he forgot a bunch of stuff you needed to sytart working on it again. /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif
