yeah girl had couple friends over and she warned them that our house looks a little redneck right now with a truck cab hanging from a tree and all. then landlord came over today and offered to put up a 24' pole barn for me and up my rent $100. which is cool but won't be around much longer so whatever. He thought I was crazy to be doing all this in the hot ass sun, which when I look at the pics I think I might be.

But all good, dash is all back in, cab bolted down, just need to add the fender and clip and put the bed on and good to go. be down and driving it by tomorrow.


Yes John, thanks for taking it easy and not ripping and tearing like a junkyard.

well the wipers and lights work and heater and it drives so think I got it working, just need to do some maintance while the box is off, then add the box and good to go. looks way better then my truck, so I'm preety happy with it. Easier to sell this way now that it is a 91 and not a 88.
