    I turn my back for a month and bam you are into something else. :)
    That will certainly be a nice one to cruise around in.

    I'd be worried about rock chips or scraping the sides on the rock outcroppings that line your road. There are a few places on your road that remind me of driving on the Cross Bronx and being stuck between two tractor trailer trucks.

    Still cannot believe that after all these years you and the neighbors never got together to try and widen that road.

    My neighbors LOL the only way they would widen the road was if they were beer kegs buried on the side of it

    So I got 2 radiators with the truck , the bad one has a flatter top and is about 1/2" shorter to top of filler as the more rounded one I used is. I noticed the hood hit the cap and wouldn't close. I took the flat cap off the other radiator and replaced the latched one with it. So now hood closes with a about 1/8" to spare but the hood is hitting the fenders now.....touch up... grrr. I'm hoping after putting on the weather seals it will help.

    Is there anything you can't do or refuse to tackle in the shop?
