As soon as it quits raining around here, we will get to the tire smoking pics and some video.

Still lots of little stuff to do, The boy was putting the drivers side mirror back together and scratched it, so we need to sand and repaint it. install the new carpet, seat belts, etc.

I don't believe that. It NEVER rains in western Washington. lol! . You know of course the reason Washington is so green is because God loves it so much he waters it almost every day.

We had one of our new mini gauges, quit working so we replaced them with 2-1/6" gauges and that required a new gauge plate be made.












Got the exhaust painted with some high heat black.

much better then the stock bumper. The "out of the box" fix doesn't look too bad.
