Waiting on Dave. I think he crashed. He had to work this morning and came home at noon to let us use his shop. He was beat ( as was I ).

Update: Shawna just called. I think she laughed at the ' For Sale ' sign on her truck :)

Damn. Wish I could have stayed in bed till 2 today :)

The next project will be a 350 Dually that Smashed a Buick tonight. Pops ' RAN OVER ' the back end of a 99 Buick. I came home and saw teh front liecense plate missing.. then I realised the bumper was bent a bit.. Took a good look.. It needs a bumper, innercooler and some buffing. He said there ' wasn't anything left of the Buick.. ' but the passenger of it was a ' well insulated and padded individual ' so there were no injuries.

What ya doing tomorrow Scott? Bri? Dave? LOL! Wanna work on a BIG truck for once?

Nope. He is just VERY busy out in his shop doing some things. I might swing by later and help him out :) .

Anyway.. I think this whole thing came out pretty good. Many different people helping in many ways. I'm looking forward to doing Scotts project once the parts arrive :) Should be on the 30th.

The whole truck's paint was ' dingie ' and HAD a yellowish/light brown tone to it. Rubbin compound and finishing glaze fixed it up really nice. Its WHITE again!

Then he went serious, taking off vinals.. all the left over sticky junk from those ghey headlight covers.. He wanted to cut off the rusty ricer pipe on her exhaust and run it straight out the back but I wasn't given permission to do such. He and brian were hunting through Daves shop lookin for a sawz-all..

Hmmm.... Two great minds... they create tools on the fly for particular jobs - Bri and D.... and yet they had to hunt thruogh the shop to find a sawzall when there was one laying out in the open, literally in the middle of the shop, atop the table saw in plain veiw... and they were hunting for one? Maybe they need glasses?

Umm.. we both probably do. . Then again, we do somethings backwards.. sometimes.. and sometimes it DOES work! Then again, your the man with the plan on cleaning just about any surface. That Stripper stuff worked great on the floor mats!

didn't think that'd be possible lol


Needs the bumper Mod: adjusting the bumper closer to the headlights and grille. That gap always bugs me. I'd also recommend spray painting or take a sharpie and black out the plastic on the clear corners. it's amazing how much those little things will clean it up and that will take all of 10 minutes
