Default Project Orange Status Report

Worked pretty hard on the project 40 this week. Got the radiator and fan shroud in. Got the Optima in and hooked up. Installed the front bib with Roundeyes headlights. I had to do some trimming on the rear cross member for the taillights. And then I found out the plugs on the tail lights didn't match the plugs in the harness. Called Kurt at Cruiser Outfitters who I bought the tail lights from last August, and he's swapping them out for the right ones, no charge! Kurt really rocks! Put the spare tire on the rear bumper today.

Thanks Drew. Actually, the list is still long. It needs an exhaust system, front drive shaft, transfer case cross member, skid plate, rear locker, roll cage, center console, compressor/OBA setup and a few miscellaneous things like radios, and stuff. But it's getting there!
