No time for a haircut yet....

Just need the CHRA to come back from rebuild, then the rest of this can go back together...

I was waiting for the turbo CHRA to put the front sheetmetal back on, just because it's really, really easy if it's all accessible from the side, but I may just put the sheet metal back on just to get everything else back on...

And with the right fender/apron on I can test the last of the stuff.

So far, so good. Not expecting any problems, as it's been apart and together a few times before it came apart for paint, but still--there's a LOT of plugs and things in even a simple truck like a 40.

Haircut when it drives. That's the deal.

didn't get bumpstops dropped but have pretty much decided to run the 315s. i can always hammer the body out of the way .

saturday i will be busy with alarm/camera system for the house, and sunday, hopefully, i will get the caster dealt with. it's going to require a lot of cutting tho stupid rust.

vacuum, drink beer, pack a few things, drink beer, wire a few things up, drink beer , charge camera batteries, drink beer, wish i was getting a haircut, drink beer.

done.

I have to attach the Hydro steering hoses and mount the tires, 96 bolts to go Then pull the 40's off and replace with the 39" Krawlers. Put on the camper, pick up the trailer from Randy's place, pack beer, food, clothes and some other crap. Load up the 4Runner with the fridge, parts and tools and that should cover most of it.

Oh still need to shop and wash my clothes before Sunday morning

List did get shorter but............. Still need to work and finish a project that is nearly done

Hey Justin, do you guys happen to have a pair of pre-made sliders for 60 series lying around?
