We are very disappointed in you and all agree that a 3 day ban is in order if you don't have a significant update soon. :D :p:

Slo-vo was busy pulling eyelid inspection duty. No ban is needed-

Pulling EID

Slo-vo was busy pulling eyelid inspection duty. No ban is needed-

Eyelid inspection duty? :p: Never heard that one. Military term? Too funny and I've got to remember it!

But yeah - sort of having withdrawals from your project. Need my fix, man! :cool:

No but it sure sounds like a military term doesn't it? Maybe that's what these kids do now-a-days when you're trying to give them a class and they're dozing off.... they're pulling EID!!!

I like that! :D

I couldn't work in the heat you've had to deal with lately.

working on it, im just kind of at that point where im still stuck deciding what i want to do on alot of things so i spend more time sitting and looking at it then actually doing anything lol


as for the heat, its been nice this week. mid 80's and a slight breeze which is why i havent got much done this week. been knocking out some house work and the last 2 nights ive been hitting the river in the kayak for some good R&R. ive paddled right at 8 miles in 2 days.

i could have really used that in highschool, it does sound kinda fancy.
 






im getting tired of waiting on my steel guy to bend up my tubs, not sure what the deal is he usually has my stuff done while im standing there.

since i cant do much out back i headed up front and started on the crossmember for my spring hangers. i couldnt just do a plain ole square tube so i did some playing around with it.

looks like to use the expo springs ill be doing some work on the body mount, but since im going to be using solid body mounts it will be pretty easy to fix.

then decided i didnt have enough rom for a winch so i barrowed an idea from bray's new bumper and added the tube to give me enough room to weld a plate in across the top.

Happy Parts are glad to do their jobs! Looks good!

if you look alittle closer youll see they are flipping you off lol, its kind of the pirate 4x4 salute.

It's been much nicer around the mid 80's

agreed on the much nicer temps.... I'm not sweating to death now at the shop.

I eve had the energy to wash the wife's truck last night :D I can actually see the wheels again for all the brake dust (yep it'd been quite a while).
 






decided to cut 4 inches out of each side on the front, wont be running but pieces of the factory fenders and no more factory headlights.

I'm going to have to do something, all I can find locally are the mesh back gloves. First time you fire up a grinder it goes right through.

Guess I'll have to get on the net and order me some
