I needed a custom filler neck for the Ranger, so I contacted Joe and told him what I needed. I expected nothing less, but damn, it looks good.

Well I would like to report it is up and running.........but I can't. I sent it to Dallas last week to get the last of the turbos/oil lines set up, and had plans to get it this week. Ran into a few problems with my Ex-wife being investigated by Child protective services, so I have a few legal issues and trying to get my son out of her "care". Dealing with that first and foremost, then wouldn't you know it, yesterday go to the doctor after feeling crappy the last few days, and no chit, Swine flu! Yeah, I needed that. I about crapped when they told me, but honestly, its not that bad, and I have had worse colds. I figure next week, I'll go get it, and finish it up. As soon as I get it, I should be able to crank it, and hope I got all the wires in the right spots.

Sorry to hear about all that. My mom and her last husband had to go through all the legal stuff to get his two kids out of their mom's care. Long, expensive and time consuming but well worth it in the end. Can't wait to hear this thing run.

Swine Flu isnt supposed to be that bad. the regular Flu is the bad stuff this year. Hope you get better and get the truck running!
