starting over again- expo5.0s registry

I decided to start a new elite registry. My old one is like 35 pages long (i'll link to it here) and it is extremely outdated.

http://www.explorerforum.com/forums/showthread.php?t=103951

I promise to try to post pictures of this one of how i do things etc. rather than just the end products. I hope this will help other people with their own stuff.

I will also link to my write-up i did for Rick and this site on fiberglassing.

http://www.explorerforum.com/forums/showthread.php?t=148359

This thread can also serve as a q & a for that information. feel free to ask me about anything you think i might be able to help with.

also, feel free to tell me i'm doing something wrong. I have no "education" so to speak or training in doing most of the things i try to do of my truck and i'd appreciate being put on the right track if i stray. In the same vein you might want to think twice before following my advice (this goes more for suspension and body work advice than for fiberglass advice, but i obviously can't take responsibility for anything)

thank you for checking things out

-drew

here are the most current pictures of my truck sort of as an overview-

by "better" what i really meant was far more complete interior pictuers soon.

I wish i had some of ther rear part of it (behind the sub box), as it is already all built, but it is all downtown in my workshop and not at home with the truck at this point.

I guess I also should post some pictures of the updates to my audi-

I added my xbox, a 9.2" widescreen static mount in the dash, and a 9.2" widescreen flip-down to the existing surround sound stereo system.

in all honesty- it's going "away" for about 5 months here soon.

I'll have all those mdf frames i've been building to work on fiberglassing/finishing all winter though.
