Well, yesterday we went for a ride to see a friend and help him work on his Mustang. Round trip was about 100 miles. Roads were 99% dry, but she did get some grime on her.

So today, it was wash and clean up time. She's clean, dry and warm in the garage. Just put her to bed.

In the near future, I need to dial in the cruise control.

Fixed the speedometer cable, put fender bolts that were never put in, started tracing all the wires that lead to nowhere on my new to me F-350 dually. Alot of little irritating things that don't take that long to do.

I checked the oil, and then of course I had to go out for a drive in the snow to check the 4wd just to make sure it was still working

Since the roads were dry, I took it out for a spin, and picked up a case of beer!! I then put it back in the garage, and replaced the antenna that was snapped off when I got it. I also replaced the brake pad on the pedal. and the list goes on and on!!

Recieved some more 1-3/4" mandrel bends from Jegs. So I can continue working on the headers.

Yup! day off of work, they open at 9 AM sharp! Then this afternoon, I swaggered out to the mail box, (beer in hand) and my NOS F150 CUSTOM embelms arrived, so I popped one on the passenger side.

Its backed in and to close to the wall, so it will have to wait for another day till I get the driver's side on!!


PS: The crazy wacky hours I have worked for years, I am able to sleep, or have a cold one any time of the day or night. My wife can't figure out how I can come home after work, and set at my bar listening to tunes, and drink a few beers, and watch the sun come up.

I tell her, But I just got off of work!!

Yesterday I pulled out the front seat, removed the gear shift lever, and pulled both driveshafts. Today the plan is to get the transfer case out. The transmission too if I have the time.

You sure it's not upside down? well i wish I could do that more often.
send me a PM with a pic of those emblems.

as for me, I grew tired of the "just went mach 4" look and decided to do something with the rattle cans i've been waiting to leave a massive black blot on the walls and ceiling upon explosion (kinda bummed, it would have done the dirty work or repainting the garage), and painted my truck a bit, motivation for completion I guess.

here it is
