I checked the UPS tracking on my rear spring bushings.
They will be here tomorrow. Not that I need them anytime soon. But the sooner I get them the sooner I can misplace them causing more parts to be misplaced during the Havoc of looking for them.


Now what was that I was looking for?

I've been through LA, it's not near as bad as Dallas, TX, or Chicago.

I may end up making the truck below look like the blue one in my previous pic, but it'd be a shame to part/scrap a real W-350 5 speed that way.
I'm getting to where I don't care any more.

Must not have been foggy. They don't slow down until they hit somthing there are a lot of them that moved up here. You can always spot them, They are the ones that think 6" is a safe following distance.
They aren't all like that but a lot are.

Nice Val, can I have that trailer?
I cleaned and painted my core support and inner fenders. The radiator is being repaired and I will start prepping the fenders.

Mike to be honest you wouldn't want that Trailer .I have pulled it all over the west coast and only had 1 tire go down but the Owner on the other hand can blow a tire just by looking at it . If it was My trailer It would have 8 lug axles and a it would be a Goose nexk trailer . Tow's Great but owner just does not keep it maintained . Just like Last Night it had no Light's and pretty much half of the tires are Bald . what can I say he's a Ford Owner but maybe not for long . I think after last nite he may be going to Dodge .

Yes,
I would make a gooseneck and add 8 lugs before I even took it out.
