I shipped a steel rock fender to china once, you don't want to know how much that cost!

Oh and... It rides a bit stiff with solid front shocks!

LOL, doors was the easy part! If I can get a windshield in it eventually, those doors may get swapped out for doors with glass in them.

my heart is broken. It now moves under its own power?! You have made progress, which is the exact opposite of what I suggested you do! lol

I believe somewhere in the fine print on the rule book, it states something to the effect of.


"If one vehicle becomes running, another shall stop running to offset such interpretation of progress being made. Therefore, any viewed progress shall be null and void until all vehicles move under their own means."


So judging by the fact I literally had to push the one out of the intersection on Sat morning and walk home... I believe if I'm interpreting the rules correctly, progress has still not been made.

Sounds about right Khris. Life can't let you get too far ahead at any onetime without there being at least a little correction ;-)

If you only knew right now! Wind was just ripped from my sails... Parked the truck in the sideyard still on the trailer. Gonna cover it up for a bit and move on I think. Need to do a quick repair on the mustang. Contemplating selling it honestly. Too many vehicles, too much money tied up in the driveway. Far from broke but just kinda over it all. May sell dirt bike too. Ridden it 3 times since April of 2012. If I sell it, I might as well sell the enclosed trailer too cause I only have it for the bikes. See if Jason's ready to pull the trigger on getting the race truck fixed up again now. If so, maybe dive into his and then when his is up and going pull mine back off the trailer and button it up. Basically... hit a minor wall with the truck unloading it at the exhaust shop. Well, I didn't actually hit a wall with it... Cause that would mean the engine wasn't currently locked up solid on it. But hey, it ran awesome for about 10 minutes the other night at least!

This is a 4l60e also. It doesn't like to shift from first to secound. I'm thinking bad seal on the piston or broken piston.

Any idea what caused it to lock up?

Khris, you're feeling kinda like I have been feeling lately. Park it for a minute and work on something else. While you take a step back use that time to look at it with a level head and see if you really want to ditch it or if you just want to push through and get it finished
