Oh ok. I didn't know if you had access to a "come along" that could help pull it into a spot to keep you out of trouble.

lol I would just take your time & finish it like you said you were told to by the officer. Just be like "I only have a few things left to do to button things up & it'll be off the street, give me a few days & I'll be outta your hair"

There's always one of those people in the neighborhood, complainers. It's not like it's just sitting there abandon, your working on it!

To bad you can't find out who it is, - they are asking for a reaking mailbox stuffer

Pretty sure it was the one right across the street from me.... For some reason I think I'm gonna randomly "sleep walk" at 3am to my truck and cold start it when it gets running

Pretty Everything is done. Just have to go get some heater hose for the IC lines and trim my throttle cable. I should have it done a day or so after I get the transmission, which should be any day now. School is over so I have alot more time to work on it which is good cause I need it running. I got to drive it down to Georgia (the truck I'm driving now won't make it) in 3 weeks and have a bunch of work lined up

I got these few. The heat exchanger mounts arnt the prettiest but I didn't feel like going back to home Depot to get more stuff. It's sturdy enough. I'll go to advanced tonight and get the rest of the hose
