Yeah man. It really does suck. Clyde, however, is still running nice and strong. He got his E4OD rebuilt and it's pretty strong. Torque converter locks a little funny, but I think it's alright. He's still my DD, though. I love him to pieces. I'm actually making slow but sure progress on the interior update. I have the center seat out and dismantled for reupholstery and some tweaking, and the passenger door panel is repainted to black (as the entire interior will be eventually. I'm gonna be a little secretive about the interior job just yet, though. I want to kind of surprise everybody. Any pictures will mostly be underhood for a while. Clyde's undergoing some big aesthetic changes and I want to hit you guys with it all at once.

As for the jobfront, though, I actually just got a great job! I was driving forklifts for a cold storage facility here in Bakersfield. It was a REALLY great job with good money and bennys but lots of hours. But today I got a call from a shop downtown that wants me to start on Monday. It's a Case International dealership, parts, and service shop and I'll be coming on as a diesel/ag equipment tech. How freaking cool is that? I'm so excited. Plus I guess two of the guys there are jarheads like me so I'm really looking forward to everything.

Thanks, I'm slowly restoring her as much as I can. The trucks been in my family since it had 11 miles on the clock. Its been sitting in my yard since '05 and this winter I finally decided to get her road worthy again since Im not driving my '85 Iroc-z in the snow. So far shes been pretty relieble considering its all original with 180k, besides my little incident over the weekend Im loving this truck.

Put the new Moog 844 springs on yesterday, took the photos today. Much better than the broken coil spring that they replaced.

Today I replaced my stock cap ,rotor and wires with a new ignition rotor, a used MSD distributor cap and used Taylor wires. I got the cap and wires for free off of a mud truck a friend is working on-they replaced the stock EEc distributor with points!?! I have no idea why other than the electronics in the mud truck keep on failing (Its a mud truck). I also painted part of an overhead console I got from the junkyard for $15. Then I managed to mess up my alternater pulley nut. I am taking off the 2.125 pulley and replacing it with a 1.875 pulley. I will get a new nut for it tomorrow and have it running again tomorrow evening.
