Mother nature...

I had my truck totally worked over by a hail storm back on July 15th and finally got the call today to get it into the body shop. I am supplying them with a windshield, roof panel, both fenders and a belt molding, they said they can fix the rest. It isn't going to be cheap but after 14 years and countless hours, I just couldn't let it go... the 03 will live again.

Nicely done! I applaud you for sticking with the old girl... some of us know the 03's are faster...

Well the insurance company wrote off my 2013 Caravan so I used the payout from that to get this done. Once all the dust was settled I actually came out ahead as now my house and garage has a new roof and the eves have been all replaced and updated. I will replace the siding myself as I had just resided it this summer and it will probably only take one weekend for me to do.
I really need to get all my posts compiled into one thread... I have the heads I mentioned before coming back next week and I will post some pictures then.

Thanks a lot guys. It absolutely broke my heart watching it get beat to death like that.

They have been working hard on it over the holidays. It no longer has any dings in it! The roof has been replaced and the whole truck sits in primer at the moment. They basically have to prep for paint and throw it back together.
I'm getting pretty excited now as I have a new set of ported heads (flow tested at 345cfm on the intake side) and the ported OC Performance intake to match it.
