Finally Back (kind of)

Havent been around in a while because my hard drive went but that fixed but now my cable modem is acting up.
So I am at school right now typing this. As for the truck did a bunch of wheeling while I was gone.
Had it stuck with the head light undewater [img]images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img] but all and all it was fun. Except I ended up hurting the motor
so rebuilt that while I was gone too. Now I have to get a new radiator for it and the diesel one(converted to gas)
are expensive. Also got new hood, doors bumper, grill and cowl panel will be getting fenders and core support today.
So now I can fix the trail rash but not for a while want top wheel it more with the junk parts. Well back to reading posts
because I have a lot of catcing up to do unless some one wants to give me a summary.

Re: Finally Back (kind of)

I had alot of radiator troubles and couldn't see paying the price for a new one. I too it to the local shop and he ended up fixing it for less than 100bucks. This included fixing several holes that were in the cores. If your tanksare still good you could get your radiator re-cored and that will still be alot less expensive than a new one which will probably be a rebuilt one anyhow. Hope this helps.
