Got a text from the painter today, he says he is painting everything today and would like to get paid. Funny how that works... He has my truck for 2 years and after one day of work he wants money. We will see...

Thumbs up Re: DEPLOYMENT BUILD UP

Omg! The paint is done!!! I got a text from the painter and said he finished everything and wants a check today.

One of my co-workers says I should date the check for two years ago and write void across it. Sounds like a good idea, but no one at the bank would notice and they would cash it anyway. Its hard to get good help these days.

I'm just looking forward to being done with it. Someone once told me that long after the satisfaction of a good deal is gone you will still have the dissatisfaction of a bad experiance. My advice to anyone getting work done on their project is to not hire friends and don't be suckered by a promise of a low price. Not always the best value.

I have to get the doors put together and hung and put on wheather stripping, and detail everything again. The seats cracked and are coming apart from sitting outside all winter.

Hope to get it all done for the dixie regionals in April!!!

Me too. I'm tired of all type and whine. Can't wait to get up some new shots!

First thing I am going to do is move the fuel filler neck down on the tank so I can pump gas at the station. Filling it up from a can is gettting old! The old pumps must have been a lot slower, or everyone just filled them from the gravity tank on the farm like we did when I was a kid.

I spent the weekend putting doors together and taking pictures, but I am having trouble getting them to load. The inter web has been screwy since the ice storm.

I just ordered the sta super traxion tires for my stock rims. I hope to have them mounted and on the truck for the dixie regionals.

I did a few other projects, but will wait until I have the photos off of the camera and uploaed before I bring them up.

Thanks for following along. I have been busy with the little things and working on a new project I saved from the crusher. I have the wheels and tires on and the top. I didn't make it to dixie as I was picking up the 65 Scout I rescued.

I did make it to a local care show and one best other in the truck category!

I will try to spend some time this weekend and post the pictures.

So I didn't have time to upload pictures this weekend, but did find these on my work computer. Here is the Scout on the beach with the new top and tires on the stock rims. I think this is also the first picture I have posted with the doors on.

I tries to uplaoad a picture of the tire, but it is an invalid file. They are the super traction t/a tires from sta. I love them. They have the great classic look and ride pretty good for a bias ply. In the photo above they are aired down to 15 psi and didn't squat a bit. I don't bother air them done any more...

I had it out the other day and the beach was empty. I put in low and crused the whole beach! It was a great day.

I need to finish posting my pictures here so I can start a new thread for the 65 I am doing now. So much easier once you have done it before!
