Pain in the ****ing ***!!

just finished (and I mean in the last 20 minutes) one on my buddy's 06 the two of us put in about 7 hours yesterday, with 3 trips to home depot for tools, one back to his house for NOTHNG that helped us, an hour break for lunch and several beers, then today I put in 12 hours, minus breaks and thinking periods, plus his 3 but it's DONE!

I will say this, DO NOT atempt this bodylift while hung over!!!!! (this is a big factor in the length of time it took us)

And yes, a torch is a MUST
