Thanks I like that view also.
I need to finish my doors, glass, including the corners, the compressor and tank, got a couple of small leaks that are bothering me, a little finish welding, an exhaust leak, insulate and line the cab, HEATER, radio, smooth out the cowl a little, and then:

A little head work, camshaft, intake manifold, an overdrive transmission and possibly air conditioning.

Then I'm going to NOT paint it which will take some time. You ever sat and watched the patina process? Very interesting occurance.
All while driving it as much as humanly possible.
That's a pretty good list. I like the last item the best. I find that's the one thing that most people can't wrap their minds around with my truck, that I am not painting it. Ever.

You've definitely got your work cut out, but those items shouldn't take too long!

When you don't know what you're doing, it's best to do it quickly.

And when Iím gone, you can call me foolish but hopefully not boring. I will have lived.

The more I learn about women, the more I like my car.

Yeah it's nip and tuck and I'm definitely running out of room under the rear deck.
But it will fit nicely then just have to mount the compressor under the fuel tanks.

I hear you on the paint. Some people just don't get it. That's alright tho
I don't get spending 10 to12 grand on a paint job, polishing it all the time
and never driving it.

Love the stance on your GMC, you nailed it.

Thanks, I'm very happy with it! Yep, people just don't understand that driving something you don't need to babysit or worry about polishing and rock chips is so much more fun!

Yeah the tanks are and that's the only place I have any room. Glad I've about got everything on it.

It seems a lot easier to put it on a list than it is to get it accomplished.
Not to mention I've got a bad case of laziness I guess.

Default Progress?????

Don't like to rush into anything. At this rate I figure about 1 1/2 weeks to install tank and compressor. Dang, I'm slow.
