Simmer down there tater tot....Just go by this motto:
If it aint yers, dont think about it, dont even think about thinkin about it....And if it aint yers, dont touch, hold, feel, or caress it....Then you should be safe....If not, I guess yu'll have a mini Ford fanatic....

I'm not working right now...So it's really up to you for the meet an greet...

haha!

Ain't that weird though man???? She calls me this AM and says she had that dream. I nearly crapped myself. I'm a family man but working security isn't going to pay for a baby, you know?!

I'll holler at you when I get some time bro.

I'm really liking that hood on your truck. I really want a 2'' cowl for mine. Won't happen (I keep stopping myself from pending money on the truck) but I think these F-150's look GREAT with cowl hoods.

Like I said I plan on buying a used Ranger. I wonder if anyone makes hoods for Rangers? I think some fat tires and a cowl would look really good on the little truck.

Yea...Weird....

As far as cowl hoods go; Cervini's, Reflexxion, Stylin Trucks, Street Beat Customs....

There is a ton of places out there....My hood was a mere $249...The S&H was $100....So yea....STILL cheaper than LMC.....Mine is a lift off though....The factory style that raises up is another $250...So you are better off to get the steelie....

Yea,....Rangers can be aggressive looking...

Yea.....I hate the sickly green look...

Did you scrape the green coating off the gauges or did you leave it? Can you see any hint of the green coloring when the gauges are on, especially when dimmed low?

Scrapped it off....And no, no residual green filter crap....If you leave the green filter on, it is so dim you can barely see the gauges and they will look like you jacked them off santa's sleigh, with the red/green look...TRUST ME....

Did some split loom work today....Not a thing wrong with dressing it up a bit...







More to come tomorrow....Just deciding whether or not to keep it all red loom, or put a bit of blue in too....

Pizza guy asked me what I had in my truck.

"300. Good ole' straight six."

He said, "I was going to say it sounds loud."

I have no idea what that means if it's a thumbs up or thumbs down. lol

Hmmm....Take it as a round a bout way of him saying it sounds good!

I ran outta gas today....Turns out my fuel gauge is a 1/2 tank off in its' readings...Oh well...

Gotta try to finish up my split loom work, then I get to buy new Injector O-Rings, Intake Gaskets, and possibly either a Rear Main Seal, or a Oil Pan Gasket......And THEN, I think my powersteering pump is tryin to crap out....Oh well...Even MORE new parts...
