Picked this up last night. spent the morning / early afternoon working on her... got new taillights (no nothing fancy, just ones that work), primered a few pieces, and took those stickers off the truck.





finally something to carry stuff. like wood. or stone. or a fridgerator. or whatever.

hahahah!! yeah. sorry. I didn't mean to say ya'll didn't have the torque...

I was just surprised at how easily it spins tire (as in, you have to try to not spin).

Spent 6 hours (yes, 6) today cleaning the truck.

Wash. Dry. Sap remover. Prewax clean. Glaze. Glaze again on hood and roof. Wax. Wax again around fenders.
Windows, Rain X. Paint rear bumper black with rubberized paint. Shine tires. Clean and UV protect interior.

Result...


Also got my 1337 targa tape deck (that's right, the audiophile himself has a freaking tape deck when he owns no tapes) workign... and both 1337 speakers working too.

Booya!

Actually, it's the stock antenna. I would try to put a focus antenna on it... but it doesn't mount the same. I really cant stand the fender location.. makes cleaning the windshield a bitch!

Gee, wonder why it spins the tires? Could it be the lack of weight over the rear wheels?



Just poking fun.

Put on a custom cat back exhaust today.


Perforated Glass packed muffler, to a dump in front of the rear wheel, with a small slant cut stainless tip. All painted black (except the tip).

Booya.


I wish the focus exhaust was this easy.
