I have been too busy with other things to even look.

The motor for the 2000 Dodge Dakota project finally came back from the machine shop. Started assembling it and found they sent the wrong oil pan gasket and rear main seal. :rolleyes:

In the meantime a guy who goes to our church asked me to paint some fenders for his '59 Harley Davidson. They are sitting in primer now waiting for me to find time to block and finish sand them.

Then there is the house and garage to paint, decks to stain and the list goes on. Might me a couple of months before I get back to this project.

Thanks for the links though. I will try to check them out.

Ya I too am busy, leaving tomorrow for a work Trip will be gone for a while.
Meanwhile engine for my Vett is done and I don't have time to pick it up from my Machinist. Its all paid for just no time to pick it up.
And I too have to get the other house painted and a lot of other work around this one.
I hate home repair stuff I am good at it just don't like doing it like I used too rather be puttering around shop.

Placed an order this week for the new roof skin, drip rails, floor pan and trunk floor. Bought all AMD products that should arrive the second week in January.

I am always impressed by how much work you can crank out vs. how long it takes me to do my little tiny projects. That looks awesome.

Shipping on that was expensive I bet.

Nice packaging though, I am guessing its a new Roof skin?

I called and had them combine shipping costs for the roof skin, floor pan and trunk floor.
$100 shipping for the pallet to my house.

Some really nice person gave me a $200 gift card for Christmas and I used that to buy a non-rally tachometer and wiring harnesses.
Got a great deal on that package as well through Yearone by complaining that their 30% off didn't include the item I needed. Salesman got back to me with 30% off the tach plus no charge for the harness or shipping.

Now I just need to finish up a few other projects and I can get back to work on my car.

Disassembled and began to media blast but ran out of media so couldn't finish it.
