    installed your QA1 shocks on the 11th, but asking me questions on how to install them last week? You actually getting work done or what there Rich!? LOL!

    So whats the progress. Fuel system done yet?

    Coming over tomorrow to help me sheetrock the garage? That was part of the deal for the swingset. $500 + help on the garage....I'm still waiting on the help portion and I'm almost done already!

    update: not much going on with my truck. been busy doing some other things. managed to mock up my fuel rails, reg. and drain. also started my meizere i/c pump bracket.

    i got some gaskets in for my motor, other then that not much going on. i found out today that my heads are scrap metal, after about 4-5 weeks @ the machine shop. they managed to repair the damage but every time they put the new spark plug insert in it broke the repaired part. luckily i have a set of 8 thread 04 heads that im going to have them port for me. just sets me back even further now. i have a new set time limit for the truck! it must be running and on the road by 11/27/10 cause on 11/28 it will be a year since she has been down. yep i think 364 days is long enough to be with out her!

    well what are you doing still sitting at home? you should be over my house taking that swingset apart since it'll take you more than a single day to do it! Get that knocked out while you can't work on your truck!
