I'm about to go out in the shop and get busy on the rear suspension of the C-cab. Hopefully I can get it done today so I can start moving stuff into the new shop tomorrow.
Rich, don't worry about the trailer. A friend of mine is trailering down his S-10 for me to work on so I told him to leave his trailer too.
After I fix his truck and move the shop, he can come pick up both. I guess I better get started on building a new trailer. Steel is getting cheaper and the cost of a new trailer is steadily going up. At this rate, I could make money building them. Years ago, I could buy a new trailer for less than the cost to build one myself.

Since the wife took Mom to Urgent Care in Rolla this morning, I got to choose what we were having for Mom's birthday lunch and party. That's kept me pretty busy this morning, but I've got a lull in the action until its time to start cooking burgers and brats later. It looks stormy here, so I might be doing it in the rain.
This afternoon, I'm hoping to finish drilling out the final mounting points on the framework and start getting that put together. The wife suggested making a jig since I have to build several of the frames so that will be next. I knew I married a smart one.
