You can get more with a kind word and a 2x4 than you can with just a kind word.

Cool, Great to be one of 'em

Just joined this site and learning so many useful things to help me work on my truck. After just buying my 150 less than a year ago from a friend of a friend. having to put so much blood and sweat into it, It gives you a great sense of accomplishment when you get to do the work yourself.
I have done a lot to the rusty 150, although standing next to it you may not tell. It was a lot just to get her rolling, Buying her and then having to tow it home to get it running before I could drive it. It had been stolen and driven through a building to haul an ATM out of a CVS, as I'm told. (it sure looked like it too)
But that I'm driving her daily, It's a lot of routine maintanence Like today I changed the oil, pcv, and changed the fluid in the rear axle. Making sure to write down and take a picture of the axle tag that was actually still there.

If we had some more chit chat in here, it would be a lot easier to set up a meet, even just to show off our trucks for an hour and grill some hot dogs, ya know?

Shaz, I didn't know you were in GR brandon. I'd have come visit when I was down at Tim2's.

I gotta do it myself, most of the time, cause I'm to damned broke!

Oh man, That is a winner of a Pun there.

15 mins? thats all?
I can drop an OBS rear, if the bolts are not froze up, in 5.

What the hell were you doing? Harpooning your tank?
