WooHoo! I cleaned everything and painted it all with Por-15 (cool stuff by the way), and I broke down and paid my friend to put in the ring and pinion (he said he'd have it for me by Friday). I just got my diff cover from Steve at Missouri Off Road Outfitters, talk about beefy. I finally got around to GM dealer and ordered my King pins, bushings, springs and grease seals, they should be in by Friday too. If everything goes right (crossing my fingers), I'll have it in by Monday night. Now I just need to get that 454 put together (I need intake manifold, exhaust manifold or headers, brackets for alternator, smog pump and York compressor, water pump, power steering pump, electric fans and probably a four core radiator), AND THEN save up for my doubler. Man, will I ever be done with this thing? <font color=blue>There's no situation in life so tragic that I can't look back on it and laugh, Ha! Glad that didn't happen to ME!
