Got my door handles painted. I'll pick them up on the way home from the airport Friday. My tires came in and will be mounted Saturday. 275/55-17 Dunlop SP 5000. The 04 fuel pump module should arrive by Monday, so the bed will have to be removed. And I'll c notch the frame while it's off. I'm nervious about damaging the roll pan while moving the bed around. Hope to have the bed back on by Thursday next week. Next will finish the water injection and install the under drive pulley and 170 degree stat. Going to be busy for the next two weeks.

HaHa I've been addicted all my life. And yes Red has had much attention given to her over the years. Self impposed deadlines are what I have to work at to avoid.

Got the door handles installed, IMO they finish the body. My paint guy is really good and they are flawless. Spoke to him about lifting the bed and I'm now thinking I'll pull the bed in his shop. I know it's normally not a big deal to remove the bed, but I've had a lot of work done on it and am mre then a little paranoid about it getting damaged. I'll build the C notches at one shop and then cut and weld it together at the body shop. new tires in the morning. I picked up some DR's so I need two more SS/T wheels. ugh it never stops... I'm going to run TNT at VMSP at the end of the month. We will see..

They should have been painted a long time ago, but seemed I always ran out of time. I knew i would be on travel for 2 weeks so I got off my a$$ and took them to the paint shop. Picked them up going home from the airport. Could not have worked out better. My paint guy cut off his 12" spiked hair, working normal hours, he's going main stream. I kinda liked it when the shop ran all night with the street racer's cyclying through for quick touch-up's. Don't ask, no tell.

edit: old picture.
