I fully understand that. Spring time is my crazy work season where all family and car projects get put on hold.

Well i have been working 7 days a week for the last 5 weeks with only 1 sunday off, and its been 100 to 106 with the heat index so it make it tought to work in the heat then come home and work in a oven of a shop so i have been rounding up parts, i have most of the A/C lines and have it pretty much all figured out what i have to do for that, and i am having the lower radiator pipe made at my local shop, i have to have some tig work done on the A/C lines and some shortened, i got both new axles in and have to grease them up and put them on, i am getting the back brakes changed to disk and the rear springs and beam powdercoated i havent got it off yet but hopefully this weekend i can, its all a very tight fit no room for much, im glad i am putting the battery under the truck cause it wont fit upfront
