There's a fine line between need and want....mostly non-existent actually.

Not that work is drying up. We lost a huge account because of the action of 1 guy handling the accnt. So there is 1.8m out the door. It will get better I am sure of it. But not before some heads roll. I plan to hold out for as long as I can before thinking about selling the Flop again.

I did however get out in the garage tonight. I cleaned up last night so I could just get everything set in place to start fabricating brackets for the front suspension tomorrow night.

We had something similar happen, not a $1.8m account, but a new account that had been spending $38k a month with Zone and had decided to start using us instead, it's taken a new (very dedicated, very good) manager, and a few weeks of a lot of *** kissing from him, and his boss, and our regional sales rep to un-**** his ****up, and it may actually work out ok, just a bump in the road.

As soon as the glass is in I will post a couple pictures, then I will be only working on the frame.

The top looks out of place black, the blue top combo with black hood accent is sexy as hell... Right choice with the blue all over. Is that the blue tinted bed liner inside cab
