The feeling you forgot something

Well after a mad attempt to get my truck ready for smokey mountain and the swb bash, i'm left with the feeling that I forgot something. I HATE this feeling. I haven't even driven the truck since last october, been in the garage all winter being worked on. HOPEFULLY (knock on wood) I didn't forget anything, and it will finally survive an outting.

Re: The feeling you forgot something

1. 48 hours after I have completed body/frame repair, new paint job,
2. I had the nagging feeling I forgot something...
3. 12 minutes later, on the freeway at 60 MPH I found out...
4. The hood came up and everything went very dark, very quick.
5. Don't forget those hood hold-downs! [img]images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img]

Re: The feeling you forgot something

reminds me of the feeling i got after installing my locker... On the ride home I was listening to everylittle thing, but kept hearing this pinging noise coming from behind me. I couldn't feel anything wrong, but that stupid pinging would get faster and louder as I sped up and was fairly consistent.... finally saw it when I happened to look back while changing lanes.... the stupid elastic band that you strap the soft top down with was flapping in the wind and the plastic piece on it was tapping the soft top frame.....

Re: The feeling you forgot something

Don't forget to retorque those spare tire lugnuts, either.

I usually don't worry about forgetting things. If I forgot them, they probably weren't that important, and if I forgot something important, that's just subjecting myself to the laws of Natural Selection. Everything works out. [img]images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

Re: The feeling you forgot something

When the job is finally done, I proudly back out of my garage, over the my garage creeper. Good thing they sell the wheels separately.

Re: The feeling you forgot something

Well I finally received my front driveshaft today. I have to give props to Denny's Driveshafts in NY. I had one of their 1 1/4" front shafts made to clear my headers. After bouncing my truck on the front driveshaft off of some rocks, it finally bent. Well since they have a lifetime guaranty on labor, I immediatly sent it to them. After they received my shaft, they called to suggest that I step up to a 2" setup. I figured why not, i'll just replace the headers with manifolds (another story) and run the beefier 2". I figured that I would have to pay for the shaft matterial and they would cover the labor. Well to my surprise, they applied the full purchase price of the first one to the new one. Leaving me with a no charge on the invoice. Again, cudos to Denny's driveshafts. They really do make some nice shafts. Now to see if it will actually clear lol [img]images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]
