Be safe on Your 36 month Vacation. I'll miss the updates. Keep a picture of that pretty face behind the ones that matter the most.

3 year “hardship tour” in Germany. I may not be able to work on the ol’ girl, but I somehow get the feeling updates will still occur

Parts are already showing up with Gringo's name on it! The next 3 years are going to be great for me, when I order something for the Blazer I can just tell my wife that Gringo ordered it.

That's awesome. Maybe you two could ship parts back and forth to fool the women in your lives.

Re: How to: Ruin a perfectly good C10

I really don't have much of a problem with the wife and ordering parts. Gringo's wife just goes ahead and orders what he really wants but doesn't want to spend the money on! Hell, she might have ordered that shifter!

Ratchet will know. Good thing all you get is that look from him.

Re: How to: Ruin a perfectly good C10

Gringo, you probably should have put your truck on the lift and unhooked the motor from it so he couldn't take it back down until you get back

Probably would have saved it from falling apart again...

To be fair, there’s no one else I would trust to be elbow deep in the old girl. She is definitely in good hands.

Progress? Pretty sure it was a mostly complete truck when I left

Shes getting some final details from the LCTC crew. They are taking the time that I didn’t have to make it right and continue to shake down and work out the bugs. Then they get to cruise it until I get back

Keith (darkhorse970) has them. smbrouss70 and Scoti are also in line to use them, but I’m sure you could convince one of them to trace a pattern and drop it in the mail. Try sending a PM to Keith.

I went and added another Blue one to the stable. I think I have a problem...

Work on Gringo's truck will resume next weekend.
