The PA Chapter's "On a Scale of 1 to America..." July 2014 Chat and B/S Thread
It's July. Really. I'm not joking.

Time's flying. Just a matter of time until the biggest event of our calendar, which is Truck Nationals on August 1-3. The Gate N Go deadline has passed, so the discount's no longer available, but you can still get in on the fun and excitement. Signups are here ---->

Bloomsburg Jamboree is right around the corner, RiffRaff East is coming up...yup, it's summer. Lots of big events. Hope to see you all at some or all of them!

Chat on! :-blah

Morning folks. Bright sunshiny day out there right now at least.

Thanks. Would be even better if the tabs weren't broken off the glass. Still rednecking it a bit with duct tape til I can hit a junkyard and grab a window - the one I have out of the salvage doors for the truck doesn't fit. It's not cut right (too big of a radius at the top corner) and it's too big for the opening. Subtle differences between the F150 and Expedition doors, even though they're visually the same.

Got an alternator and battery laying on the back seat to address next. Yee haw.

Morning Pat.

Hey Bill, how's Tuesday treating you?

liftnw8z 07-01-2014 09:29 AM

Better than Monday, worse than Friday lol. Almost halfway through the week is a good thing though. You?

67nukeford 07-01-2014 09:32 AM

Not going too bad. Rather long morning meeting, but I lived through it. I did manage to get one of the cab corners welded on last nigth. Weather has really turned nice here, humidity dropped, and temps will be around 80. Great night last night to be out in the garage!

liftnw8z 07-01-2014 09:36 AM

Still pretty humid here, didn't stop me from getting the Expedition mostly straightened out though. Just gotta find new glass, as the metal tab that bolts to the motor track broke away from the rest of the window, taking glass with it. Plus, pulled the alternator from the truck to get it tested before I drop in a new battery.

67nukeford 07-01-2014 09:46 AM

That sucks about the glass! You should be able to find one of those pretty easy, though.

hi everyone. welcome to hot and steamy july. i'm in a bad mood, and i'm about to trash someone on this site for not delivering parts. i'm giving him one last chance (i sent him an email) and then i'm going to start naming him everywhere he goes. it's not the $200, either. it's the principal of the thing. can i get in trouble on this site for doing that?

liftnw8z 07-01-2014 10:35 AM

Yeah, shouldn't be hard to find. Plenty of Expys out there to rob one from in a junkyard.

liftnw8z 07-01-2014 10:36 AM

Morning Steve - not sure about getting in trouble (you might) but feedback certainly would be appropriate if he's not delivering the goods.
