Re: Project; Divorce Therapy ( 72 SWB 4x4 )

Gary,

I am actually hiding from the little ones right now, and your thread is my therapy! They aren't mine, so I can say that. At first I was like, dude, sucks, alone at Christmas, but as I looked at what you accomplished all I could think was there could be no better way to get your mind off things then by putting together such a pretty drive train. I hope you know we are all behind you while you go through your "Therapy", and we can't what to see it when you are done!

Have one on me bud

Orlando

Re: Project; Divorce Therapy ( 72 SWB 4x4 )

There's no doubt about it that this project has helped me keep myself occupied when I'm home alone. But this coming Sunday I start a new therapy that may slow my progress by take away some of my free time. I have a date with a woman I met at a Christmas party a couple of weeks ago.

Re: Project; Divorce Therapy ( 72 SWB 4x4 )



It's taken 2 weeks between our schedules to find time for the 1st date, so there will still be plenty of time for the truck.

Re: Project; Divorce Therapy ( 72 SWB 4x4 )

Real nice project you have going. Here is some humor to cheer you up. Trucks and some women are very much alike. They both cost you lots of money, They both break down from time to time and they both take you for rides and can leave you feeling stranded. The good side is men know how to fix trucks so you do get back in the garage. No harm no fowl just fun humor.

Sorry to hear about your situation.

I would caution you about investing too much into your current project at this time. My lawyer advised me (yes been there done it) to stop all work on mine as I was making the project higher in value and tougher on me when it came time to pay my out my ex. Your truck in pieces is at it's lowest value at this present time. More then likely your truck will be considered a family asset which will mean 50/50 on the value split.

esll.

See, he's working on MY truck. It won't become his for quite a while. I have all the receipts on all of the parts... rebuild kits, engine and transmission doaners, etc.

His truck is a POS that he plows with.

Well any updates have you been working on the truck? Did you ever go out on that date and does she know you spend hours in the garage?

Re: Project; Divorce Therapy ( 72 SWB 4x4 )

No up-dates since Chrstmas day. The next step is to drill new wholes in the frame for the engine crossmember ( Moved forward 1-3/4"s because of the 700R4 ) Also have some clearance issues to deal with on the headers. There beautiful stainless steel headers but not for this year truck. The passenger side should be easy, one tube is just barely touching the frame and should bend away without much effert. On the drivers side the collector flange hits the frame & the 02 bung needs to be relocated.

The date is this coming sunday, dinner & a movie

Oh and yes she knows about the truck, ran that by her when we 1st met, and she has seen the pictures. She has a time consuming hobby also, she has a show horse.

Re: Project; Divorce Therapy ( 72 SWB 4x4 )

We all have lives to live and have to deal with the crap that is thrown before us. Sounds to me that East Side had some pretty bitter dealings in the past...

You can't live in the past... build the damned truck and deal with it. Don't let anyone destroy your future, even your soon-to-be ex-wife. You know what? After the divorce, and you have recovered... you will look back at all of this and laugh.

She can only get you for half of what it's worth (max) and so what? You need stress relief and girlfriends only add to the pressure right now. Work on your truck, even if it is piece-by-piece.

Oh, by the way, this is being spoken by a guy who has seen a divorce personally. It was years ago and I look back and laugh on how stressed out I was over it. East Side is just living in the past... he hasn't gotten over what has happened to him...

The best revenge??? Be happy and sucessful. Nothing will drive your ex more crazy than you living your life in the future (and be happy doing so), not the past (and be misserable).

East Side Low Life? This is not against you, not at all. And I am sure you will post some comment on how wrong I am and blah, blah, blah. Let this poor guy deal with this in his own way and let the chips fall where they may.

Re: Project; Divorce Therapy ( 72 SWB 4x4 )

First off your entitled to your opinion as anyone else is for that matter. You do not know me or my past so take some advice here stick to the thread. I only tried to give some advice to a fellow member. (Nothing more nothing less.) Now thats all there is folks, take the advice or ignore it either way it's no skin off my a#%.

Richard8971 ..... I apologize in advance if this offends you.

Re: Project; Divorce Therapy ( 72 SWB 4x4 )

I appreciate everyones advice and input. Going through this personally I can see both sides, but the +'s outway the -'s for me at this time, so I'll continue to go forward with the project. Both sides have brought out good points and I heed your advice. Thanks to everyone !!!!

There will be other women in my life, that's part of the healing prosses, and the project will go forward !!!!

Re: Project; Divorce Therapy ( 72 SWB 4x4 )

The last thing I did was have a custom front drive shaft made up & installed it. I've also been collecting parts for it.

NOS 72 grille outer & inner
NOS Bowtie for the grille
Front bumper brackets

I've been working on house projects the last few months.

Oh, and the DIVORCE is final now, and I still have the truck !!!

I'll be getting back to it soon !!!
