BTW, I will trade some of my chit for some of your chit

No, I'm thinking our friend Scotty had a pretty good trip to work and back. I don't want to rain on his parade, so I'm not saying anything or posting a screen shot of what he sent me via a text message.

My first thought was why is a dog pooping a cigar. ;-)

Oh Matt! I was eating when I saw that pic!!!


Got my Baby out on the road today. I drove her to work and back. I had to stop 3 times on the way to work and let her catch her breath! I was having fuel issues, like a clogging filter, and after I gassed it up they went away. Tweaked her a bit when I got home, including changing the fuel filter, and HOLY CRAP! WHAT A DIFFERENCE!! Here is a cell phone pic as I rocketed home this afternoon! More to come...

Welded some nuts into the WS frame and installed the spreader bars. The spreader bars were a gift from Mopar346, whom I haven't seen posting in awhile. Clay welded them up, then I drilled holes in the rollbar. Now to install the very nice bikini I received from Texas. Just finished this up so pics are dark.

I am very jealous of a running '7. I thought I saw 346 post the other day, but it could have been an old post I was reading. Looks good Scotty.

meh... you got a house in the mountains where you have real stills. We could trade for maybe a week, or two.
