Momma said there'd be days like that, or was that that Murphy character???
Driving the Stepper to work today with the high supposed to be 41... Yep, glad the heat's working...

Re: Donz '65 SWB Stepper Budget Build...

Time for a non-truck related update... As soon as the weather decides to cooperate I will have a truck update to post. Seems the Power Steering pump has finally given up the proverbial ghost. A new one resides in the shed waiting to be installed. Winter nastiness precludes me from wanting to spend much time in the unheated shed.

On to the update...
Thankfully there are still folks out there who aren't stingy. With that being said, today I picked up a Red Wrench setup for FREEEEEEEE!!!!!

One almost full Oxygen bottle and two Acetylene bottles with gas, Victor gauges and hoses all included in the $0 price. Here are a couple of quick pics I snapped before retreating to the heat...

Next time I find myself in the shed, something is getting cut, melted, burned, heated...

Laterz Guys and Gals, Sweetie day is just around da corner...

Re: Donz '65 SWB Stepper Budget Build...

Just a short update... Kind of a bittersweet day today. I made a deal to sell the stepper. Life and medical bills are a bit more important at the moment. More to come soon.

Re: Donz '65 SWB Stepper Budget Build...

Sorry to hear you're selling the "Stepper"
also sorry I did not get to talk longer when you called.
It is hard to get people to come out here and the dude just drove up to see about the roof on my shop.
Keep me posted on things and call anytime.
your bro.
