I used to pay other people to install things on my truck, but those costs were adding up WAY too quickly.... Now I just get my hands dirty and do it myself. So much more satisfying.

I did everything by myself to my ranger but when it comes to my fiddy I'd rather pay someone so i don't mess anything up or use my free oil changes.

I need to look into it again because I already know some basics so I'd start out on a good foot.

My ex and I had a guy come in and wire the kitchen I redid and he made a grand plus our old stove and I already had wire and he had some supplies so most was straight profit and he was only there Saturday and Sunday
Plumbing is also something I thought of. I know a good amount about that too I just don't know all the codes for plumbing and electrical.
HVAC is killer money too. My friend does hvac. He makes close to $40 an hour. 3 year apprenticeship but even during his apprenticeship he was in the low 30's

I'm tired of this thread name. It bores me. Change it to something like "Captain Creamy Ding's Fatty Fun Ship" Or something.

At least 220 will throw you back. 110 holds you there until you're dead.

I got hung up on 110 once. Buddy knocked me loose by throwing a ladder at me.

Sucked cause I was standing on scaffolding at the time.

I did everything on mine but my shocks. Would've done those but didn't have the tools and time.

I tagged the truck yesterday. Here's how it looks now:

Rusty Shackleford's "Evening At The Improv" Thread...-forumrunner_20140730_142540.jpg

Other side is still grey primer.
