Re: 1941 project fenix

I am pretty upset about the lens, speaking honestly. it made it from 1941, all the way till last year with driving and sitting in a field, cow kicks and forklifts and rollbacks and dragging it around the yard to ALMOST being installed and *crash*. pretty irresponsible of me, I gotta say.

You could get a fin comb and straighten them out. Or a pair of needle nose pliers. I've straighten my fare share of fins. Lol

Re: 1941 project fenix

we are getting to the late summer rains, I dont know if anyone remembers in my last build but when I had my 4x4 silverado in the back yard for a while last time it sank to the axles and was a real chore to get out. well johnny never came back from his original offer of help and we were about to get drenched so I had to get the truck out of the yard. we had stopped working because of the wasp nest, so I carefully drilled the cab bolts (they were rusted in place, no loosening) and got the cab up in the air but the soft dirt wouldnt let it roll. I thought about having my neighbor help pull but instead I just hooked a chain to the next s10 donor and yanked, it was touch and go but it worked! I got the trailer into the front yard just as it started raining (you can see it on the ground). it was a real gullywasher for a while, man was that good timing

I wish I had more pictures of the process because it was pretty memorable.
