    Agree with all but Cnut is not ahead of those of us with finished rides, poor choice of words they are never done. since drivable and tagged I have went from TH350 to 700R4, Q[jet to 3x2, 1.94 to 2.02 Camel Humps and 12 bolt to 9.3 Olds rear on 56 and single 4 to 2x4 tunnel ram, super T-10 to TKO-600 on 55

    Did Chevynut pass away? Or did he take his football and go home after all of the smartass remarks on his build thread?

    Man, this build thread has come to a screeching halt......for a while now. Maybe it's time to move it to the Sitting and Rotting forum. Just sayin'.

    Sid do me a favor and clean up these past few posts by deleting them. I don't need this kind of garbage on my build thread. Bitchin' Dave likes to come here to get entertained and doesn't like it when others don't post updates, but he provides zero content here. I asked him to post his project updates here months ago but he refused. I thought he was long gone and I couldn't care less. He must have gotten bored on the other site...I just looked and noticed he's not getting much done on his project the past two months either. LOL.

    I've been really busy with stuff lately but I've been working on the Nomad when I can. Just because I don't post updates doesn't mean nothing is getting done. We've built 3 C4 projects over the past few weeks, and I'm trying to finish up the 59 Corvette AME frame that we're putting a narrowed Dana 44 into. I've also been working with a laser part supplier to get parts for seat mounts andC4 conversion frames. I've been selling seat mounts like crazy and they keep me busy in spurts building them.

    I just completed an injector replacement on my LB7 Duramax and if anyone has tried that you have my sympathy....it's a horrible job. Also changed the water pump and belt, rebuilt the fuel filter pump unit, polished the headlights, rotated the tires, and replaced the right front hub. That's kept me pretty busy for several days after coming back from a trip to the Black Hills in Wyoming looking at some land, spending some time in Nebraska looking for a deer hunting place, and a long weekend boating and fishing in Wyoming. We also went to Massachusetts for a week to spend time with my daughter and her family, and went to northern WA for a week. It's been a busy summer and I haven't been sitting around much.

    I just ordered new tailgate bars from Trim Parts because I don't like the looks of the NOS ones I have. The quality just isn't there. The center bar and handle are nice but they're from Trim Parts. Also ordered a bunch of stainless parts from Madmooks for the tailgate and some door strikers that I'm waiting on. I got a little burned out after all the wiring I did, so I backed off a little and decided to assemble some other parts like the tailgate and doors.

    Elk hunting is starting in a couple weeks and then deer hunting after that. It will impede progress some like it does every year. I really don't care.....progress is progress.

    Amen brutha.

    Only have 24/7/365 to get all of life's things done. At our age, that includes slowing down at times to travel, spend time with family, and enjoy life "outside" of our old car habits.
