9-18 months
match 4 out of 5 numbers on the lotto so I can pay for another neat mod

Accident mod.....
while going to work 11-30-06 I was in a protected left turn as lead car in lane. I was attempting a left-hand turn proceeding from east bound to a north bound change. A vehicle coming from south bound and turning left in front of me to go west bound took turn too sharp while blowing red light. Seeing this and being on a slight incline I came off brakes and rolled back. At this point my lanes of traffic were green (green left hand turn and green straight). Car behind me left enough room for a jumbo jet to land, but honked at me as I rolled back. I maintained my position but vehicle that ran red light and was BLOCKING my turn was about to rake my entire front left side due to their non-driving. In order to avoid the coming accident I cut right sharply, dodged them and JUST as I cut left to make it around them I clipped the rear DS quarter panel of a suburban (2001 I believe). I'm not sure of damages cost yet to burban. Ford has quoted me ~$1400 (cheapest quote!). They will be able to pound out my PS fender. I have a dent right above where the back of front bumper meets fender flare and I'm also dented behind my side marker. Side marker mount is broken, side marker is pretty scratched up, and the mount for where the side marker attaches to FIBERGLASS headlight assembly is cracked. Bumper cover (aka front valance) is being replaced (don't know why - part of quote I'll most likely tell them to nix) and front bumper needs to be cleaned. The bumper actually took the brunt of the glancing off burban, but all it got was clearcoat scratches that have come straight off. Can't even tell anything touched the chrome on the bumper. Right now I don't even want to imagine how much the insurance quote is for the suburban. I had less damage on my truck than it [suburban]. Deductible is $250 for me. I'm not sure if I want to just tell ford to replace the headlight assembly and front marker, thus leaving me with a dented fender and I'll just put front glass on. Rather, I'm not certain if I want front glass or not yet.

Hmm.. 2 more cylinders, Liberty 5 Speed and a LOT of body work. All over the whole bloody truck the clear coat and paint is falling off. Thered dents in the bed and drivers door as well as the Flare holes in the bed. Probably just change the bed and door and paint the whole thing after the mechanical parts are done.
