1) This is an awesome Thread.
2) You have done a lot of hard work, and it is really starting to pay off.
3) Change = 2.54.

Good luck with the rest, and well done.

That 428 is on its way to my house currently.. I had to steal it away from you for personal reasons.. its one of the few things I would do the nasty's with -laughs-

Change = $2.21

I'm trying to get ahold of Dave to see If I can shoot some clear coat over at his place. There was a ' Thing on the couch error '.

Gimme a ring around 11. Brian just left and we plan to be up at 06:00hrs to start more wet sanding.

The whole body on this truck.. EVERY panel has a dent or 3, EVERY piece of plastic is cracked or chipped.. I had to fix that crack we found in the valiance and in the process.. cooked the paint off the front side and had to ' rd-do ' that one area all over again..

ok all....... i just wanna say that D and Myself have yet again pulled another late night thrash..... and in the process, ate some killer pizza, and wings.....local joint. it seems as though he and i are making it a habit....this late night thrashing of trucks.... but none the less, the truck looks a whole lot different from when D got it... now this is for shawna....... DONT EVER LET ONE OF YOUR WANNA BE GHETTOSTYLE PUNKS TOUCK ANY 1 OF YOUR VEHICLES AGAIN. they obviously dont know what theyre doing, and it shows. and i hope you try and keep the truck in a more clean state inside. as D and i were re-assembling the interior, we pretty much had to douche the whole thing..... and i dont think the wannabe rochester thugs would want to break into your truck if you didnt have valuables in plain sight.... like the computer tower, money, sirius sat radio reciever etc.... once a month would do the truck well if you just wiped everything down etc.... D and i both have extensive automotive knowledge, and i worked in a fab shop for many years, so we can do just about anything. i built a street/race car a while back. '71 demon....big block, two 4's, tunnel ram, tourqueflight, 4.88's, dana 60 rear tubbed. if you know anything about chrysler b bodies.... they never came with big blocks. so i had to fab/install alot of the parts on the car. D has an amazing mind when it comes to thinking on the fly, and i think as a team, we cant be stumped. i will be talking to fmd tomorrow morning, and i wanna see if he wants to do another meet at his place on the 23rd, or 24th. i will do chiavettas chicken, steaks, and corn on the cob for eats. any and all mods/work can be done also if needed. hopefully that weekend works for everyone, and dave is cool about having it at his place. i fixed his garage door a few days ago, and if he does agree to open his place up, id like to help him clean/organize it with other members help. it wont take long at all. fmd is a great dude, and he deserves the help. and anyone who comes, and wishes to drive a hopped up '06 F-150, is welcome.....and D's tranny/clutch will be done by then..... so there will be a heads up race taking place right D? everyone let me know

Coils up front, shackles/notch in the rear. It needs an alignment really bad.

DONE!

Tonight, Scott, Brian, Dave and I finished ' Project Un-Ghetto '. It involved repainting the door and bumper/valiance, removal of vinyl decals, a TOTAL buffing and rubbing of EVERY panel on the thing and the final assembly/cleaning of the interior as well as re-doing the airbag/seatbelt tensioner.

We had a sheet pizza and a bucket of wings, Lots of ' ball busting '..

" Hey Scott.. all the guys are out, does your wife make you leave -yours- in the nightstand? I can see it now.. ' cmon honey.. all the other guys have theirs.. please let me take mine with me ' " Begging.

Then Dave and his Ducks.. ' The Duckmaster '.

Brian and his baby seat at the track!

Myself.. I was on the receiving end of all the ' girlfriend ' types of remarks.

OH.. Scott leaves to go get his 33's for his truck.. His wife has the checkbook and says ' Your getting new tires.. So am I! '.. Yep.. She has new tires.. he doesn't .

pwn3d!

I think Dave crashed out as he took all the pictures and I haven't received a link to them to post yet.

The whole thing ends on a hysterical note though. ( The ultimate ball-buster ).

Shawna called me when Brian and I were leaving Daves. She was at the PA/NY toll booth coming back. Her truck is on Daves front lawn with a ' For Sale ' sign on the windshield :biglaugh . I'm waiting on her to ring me any second and ' S.O.B. ' me. We did something similar to ZaBeard a while back with his Tailgate, but this time.. we put up the WHOLE truck.. all buffed out and such :) . What would make it even funnier is if someone called the phone number on the sign!

I just wish it wasn't a downpour and a nice dry night for her to see it.

It can't rain forever.

Hey Scott.. Brian and I didn't make any ' special tools ' this time. See.. we don't always have that happen to us!
