from the looks of her after starting to tear it down, shes not all that bad


did the brakes yesterday to make it a bit easier to move around
(new calipers, lines, etc)

got everything going, started bleading them, and blew a line, fixed it, blew another, so just replaced it all from the front back

pulled the box of today to get a better look at the cab and so i could start work on the box

get rid of ALL the rust, custom interior, nice shiny 2 tone brown paintjob
fancy stereo, make all the chrome shiny, throw some mtr's on it and drive it on the road

maybe even put some fancy underglow on it just to piss people off

im not gonna argue with you there, they do kinda suck, but they're like 5 minutes from where i live, and theres not really any other part stores that close

they fucked up last time i bought a fuel filter and i ended up having to ride a bike to get the right one

well ive got the one side of the box done, no pics, its raining out, progress has been slow because of the rain haha

i did get my flowmasters on yesterday and there was a HUGE gain in hp
im assuming my old mufflers were clogged full of shit or something, cant see any other reasons for that much of a hp gain... cant keep the tires from spinning now with no box on the truck :D
