Project 'bout time

alright guys, been on the board for a few years, been trading parts, and knowledge, in an attempt to restore my truck, and finally, the time has come...

Here's a brief timeline so far:

August 2002 - Purchased truck upon return from Afghanistan.

September 2002 - Received orders to report to Minneapolis MN in 30 days, which meant i had to leave it behind.

Oct '02 to June '06 - Truck sat at my grandparents house in CA, while i collected parts in MN.

July '06 - Hauled truck from California to Minnesota, Truck didn't run, after sitting for 4 years, so it sat for the winter.

Spring '07 - Replaced the motor and transmission. installed power steering. at that time LockDoc sold me a short frame, but needed to get my RX7 V8 project out of the garage, before more work could be done, and next thing i know, it's winter again.

Summer '08 - DIVORCE. no money no time, no work done.

Spring/Summer '09 FINALLY made some real progress!!!


Before


Minnesota 06-ish


A few weeks ago


So as the name would suggest,
"It's about time"

Hey, you need to flip your phone over or flip your house over, otherwise something is wrong with your frame...
