My first thoughts were show truck and new beater plow truck. But then Terry would fix up the beater and have two show trucks.

Hi Gordon, I do have a tendency to get carried away at times.

Not at all. I admire the effort and skill you put into making things right.

Good Morning, Gordon, that's not what my wife says, . Well we got sons truck back together now doing some maintenance, stuff that needs to be done before being put back in service, because it gets run hard with very little down time.

Yup - kind of like keeping up with Usain Bolt. A joy to watch though.

Good Afternoon, Thanks Guys, Mechanicals done on sons truck, now doing some beautification......... when he bought the parts truck it had brush guard, roll bar, fender flairs ect whole bunch of stuff that can go on his truck, so that's where I come in it has to be cleaned up and painted and attached but at least now he can go back to work and this can be done a little at a time. So first thing is the brush/deer guard. if it looks funny it's upside down.

Terry,
This is the part that you love to play with, we can tell that you enjoy doing the paint.

Good Morning, CW, yup seems it's gonna get more use, . Frank, I enjoy bringing back things that still have use, what I'm not enjoying is the seasons change, 35* this morning, hate to see summer go, with it will be what I can do easily.

Terry,
I agree with you on the bringing things back to life. The big problem now a days is that everything is throw away and it is hard to repair things because you can't get replacement parts.

Sorry I didn't get back to you on your offer to do the body work on the truck. I would of course send DH along. Now that he has had his eye sight restored. There fore you could do the work in half the time. Say about two months at best!! The only catch is that this is our only vehicle. We just had the ujoints replaced(4),Fuel filter changed,alignment and NYS insp. $750.00. DH has to change the oil and then it goes into the body shop the week of OCT. 10th. Maybe some day we can get together for camping. Been a crazy week for me as my 85yr. old mother took sick with a bowel obstruction. She is back to full health and is home. Prayers for all in need. Take care Sam-3

Good Thoughts on the repurpose Bap, only trouble is when you full time, no room to keep things.
