removed shell for a bit, taking the boat out a few times in the coming weeks and its too wide for the shell, forgot how much better the truck looks without it but ill probably need it back on in late june




the walmart shift **** that came with the truck kept falling off and i remembered i had a "civic type r" replica in the attic from my honda days ... so with some tightening on the allens on it went

oh, and how is the shifter hard to figure out? take the nut off of the right side, put it on the left side, and tighten it on, the whole bolt will come right out, once the bolt is in your hand, pull the shifter up
