Yea thanks man...the oral surgeon was great....considering one had broken off all the eay down to gum line and the roots had grown around the nerve on both sides..i have yet to even feel the work they did on right and left would be great too but i keep having to put pressure cus its still bleeding a.bit....but if all goes well wife will buy me a crossbow as a sympathy present...lol..my elbows are pretty shoty and its difficult.for me to hold steady much less while at holding full draw at same time...i did manage to bag three does last year with my 69yr old british enfield 303(military)...so i was happy with that..well not really laws say i can harvest 8per season and i ran out around may...so i need to fill my quota and freezer...and even tho for some silly reaso you cant use crossbow during bow season it still adds 51 days to the season(primitive weapon)...anyways thanks again..

Keep it up buddy this gives me a lot of confidence to tear into my jeep. Im taking a break from my clutch replacement right now, a "friend" with a lift was going to help but I cant get ahold of him so Im tearing it down myself, man oh man a lift would make this easy. Couple more days and you wont even remember having surgery and you will be back 100% Im sure. Keep hydrated, lots of water but NO straws or any suction for atleast a week.

ok so lke firewall turned out awesome...got to giv myself props...i know i know no pics...but soon i promise...also got steering column and orbital mounted...on the down side the guages were going to interfere with the defroster duct so i had to rethink and build an outcrop for the guages to mount in...its kinda hideous but i realized it serves another pourpose...as im bouncing down the trail it keeps me from hitting the switches which control ingition and lighting...so hey whatever...ordered the seals and spindle bearing kits for front axle as well as rear pinion seal and heater core to build heat/dfrost system...am going to be able to use some of the original ducting like the blower/floor/defrost box...but ill have to custom make the core box as i want it located under the 45deg section of the passenger floorboard in a self contained box so when the heat isnt being used then the core box doesnt kick heat out into passenger compartment...the tube fenders are coming out great as well just need one more peice of 18"x18" diamond plate for the fender quarters(20$) and ill be done...i was abl to cut down the original fenders and use the inner fender section as well as original mounting areas..at first i was a little concerned with strength but after just a few tacks it was apparent that strenght wasnt going to be an issue....after much searching onine looking at various feul cells by many suppliers ive decided on a custom made(by me) made out of an 11gal air tank(pig) with a custom sump(to accomodate the occasional off canter stuckage)....the total cost of which is oh umm yeah freeeeeeeeeeee!!!!...pig from trash pile sump from scrap 18ga filler neck from ex-bronco..yada yada yada....so far on the electronics ive got jensen, r-fosgate and uniden oh and lets not forget the garmin....come christmas i have to decide on the frequency onboard welder system or a 4speed atlas tcase....am allready going for the income tax d-60front with cromos and detroits front and rear and 4:88:1 richmonds...so the atlas can come later but the onboard comes with 2 120vlt outlets that will power grindrs and elctric impacts plus a 200amp alt and a special controller box that wont run battery down when using as well as it will kill alll output if an issue arises so its pretty pimp...only costs a grand tho...hmmm only....a grand...hmmmm.....ouchy...oh yeah got replacment htc onex today...first one screen just went dark on me...wife decided she aint like hers so she got galaxy s3..left vme with jank phone plus hers as a back up phone for when mine dies again...lol......as i get closr to being done with the jeep i cant help but get ancy to start ordering parts for the z-car.....ive got 13000 in it but to look at it you would think i just drug it out of a feild untill you put it on a lift...its a second gen 1972 datsun 240-z with a 1975 l-28 out of a 280-z that was originaly fuel infected...i put a med grade cam and twin SU's on it as well as trading out the 4spd for a 74 model datsun truck 5speed...but anyways(always had a sic idea of an exo adapterplate toyota trans and tcase some coilovers and some 34"tsl's)...oh sorry got to daydreaming again....

Special delivery indeed

Congratulations, at least you'll be young enough to keep up with the little one.
