    Hahaha no? I figured that it would be fitting with that mirror and sticker on it that says “don’t be a fucking idiot”

    Huh. Trying to figure out how the '7year rule' applies when the mirror breaks something else.... Could be... good luck? :notsure: But Chris is probably right. What if it's an evil mirror?

    Do it then! If anything goes wrong, we'll treat this as a cautionary tale.

    I've never heard the story of your Big Wreck-- I figure that's one I should hear someday when I make it to CO and we can:cheers: -- but any wreck you can walk after is, well, something not to take lightly. So mount that mirror as a reminder.

    There is a thread around here by the name of “bounce school road” started by ColoradoTJ that tells a lot of the story

    I'll look it up. Still though, if you make it to SD and let me know, or when I get to CO, I'll offer up :cheers:. You know a lot of stuff I'd like to learn.

    I suppose your right. I can’t say it “thought” me a lot, but it did open my eyes and got me to take a step back form being the invincible strong headed kid that I have a tendency to be. Made me realize how short thing can be....

    Is the a pillar really considered a body panel though?

    And now that I think about it I fucked the steering pretty good

    Normally I have a hard time justifying taking a video because I also use my phone to play music, but I (finally) brought my full tool box home and set up my computer and a set of pretty decent speakers and just went to town. There was literally nothing left to do except pull the motor at that point, I didn’t feel like recording the two hours of work prior to pulling it. The full video was only about 20 minuets

    Ok I put my nose to the grindstone tonight, got the wiring harness(s) from punkin in to the new rig, (I still need a name for this one....) and most of the dash reassembled, 71A6E154-A220-42EE-8F45-AD11DBCF3FCA.jpgB598A065-AB52-4483-809E-0ABF0C1F8435.jpg more to come tomorrow night hopefully.... I still have to pull the trans but I really don’t like doing that alone lol always a little sketchy....

    I think I’m leaning towards using a lot of punkins interior parts because, well, the grey looks better then brown. Also got the idea to try and rhino line the floor.

    I had this weird dream last night. I dreamt that some one sold me a orange first gen with no interior. It was weird. I guess that’s what I get for working on the truck till I’m exhausted :notsure:
