Congratulations. It's always exciting to hear someone get theirs out on the road. It keeps me motivated. I'm hoping I get mine out before my 12 year old can drive....wait....maybe I shouldn't....

hellfirejim is starting off with a positive reputation.
You guys are lucky. If I started a finish up list I would have to write on a roll of toilet paper it is so long...

My short list is:
finish up the wiring.
install dash insert and electric speedo.
Install Lokar shifter
finish tail pipes to rear of truck.
balance rear wheels.
replace winshield rubber [hopefully not the windshield]
replace rear window and rubber.
start sealing up all the holes so I can drive it.

Then it is driving it all summer long till next winter where hopefully I will be installing the new steering setup and seats.[possibly some full on caddy seats with heaters]

jim


PS: if there is enough money left from my income tax refund I will get the steering done this time around.

Congrats, you only have a left list, I on the other hand still have a left and right list to do. Sounds like it will be happy motoring for you shortly

Well, what are you waiting for? Get your butt out in the shop and get to work....

Is there really and end to a "To Do" list? I'm afraid to even start a list as I don't think I could afford that much paper

My list is much shorter. It reads;
Take everything apart.
Find 20 grand.
Rebuild, repair or replace nearly everything on the pile, because it needs it.
Put it all back together.

I've always been really good at step 1. LOL

Red face to do list

My to do list lately has been renovate basement... not nearly as much fun as toying on the truck, but warmer. We're getting 8-10 inches of snow today. Yesterday was above freezing , so pushed the money pit out of garage, and cleaned so I could find it when I go to work on it again. Did install small heater (think hand warmer ) in garage yesterday.

I'm already adding things on my list like re-route exhaust, re-do seat upholstery, re-wire headlights. Anything with "re" in front of it can wait; my plan is to have it driveable by end of May...... I may be delusional
