Good Morning Everybody!

I'm off to the shop to work on the C-cab. I just need to find the camera. My niece wants me to list her car on CL. Anyone need cheap transportation?

Rich. I think it's a 2001 Grand Am. Silver four door with a 2.4L 4 banger. It's already had a timing chain and ignition system replaced. (the two major things to go wrong with these engines) Not sure on the mileage or the price yet. She never showed up today so I could look at it.

Anyway, I DID get the grill done on the C-cab. Not too shabby if I do say so myself. I couldn't find the camera before I left, so I'll have to get pictures tomorrow.

Good Morning Everybody!

RC. I'll be at the car lot today trying to catch up on the work junior put off when he was "working". I noticed quite a few cars displaced over the weekend. Either Jerry had one heck of a Saturday selling cars, or they were farmed out to other shops to try and catch up.

I'll be at my shop after I'm done at the car lot. I hope to have Bandit shifting gears if the pin out Jeff gave me is correct.

Well morning there boys, I'm back in the saddle and about to pop the chute on another one, we should test fly out 1st one at 10:00. Pics later....

Its already 6 PM here and I am working my way to the dinner table.

Awesome deal on the swap meat RC, dang I wish I could of made it. Sounds like money was pouring out folks pockets and I had some empty 5 gal buckets......lol.

Dave you out there?

Chip what the schedule on the EB? Ahead of Ms Dent?

Alan I can just imagine the c cab grill being as sharp as the rest of it, for sure.

Yessir, EB before Ms Dent. Alex has her cab and bed sitting in a barn and said I'm welcome to either haul her there to put them on or borrow his tractor with forks to put her together at my house.

That's a neat idea Rich, if I were keeping it, I'd be doing things differently for fun. Since it'll be up for sale as soon as it is done, restored(boring) is the goal. Ms Dent will get the fun stuff done to her.

yessir, it is a flip-ride. I have to in order to get into wheeling and dealing other vehicles and still afford to fix up Ms Dent and the convertible. I'll let you know what I need for it.
