Heard it crank a couple days ago, no smoke but a little loud on a 2 ft straight pipe.

Heres a few pics of Jake's handiwork on a hood for another old truck. I had some others of this project but lost them.

I need to get a pic of all the floors in, they are covered with a blanket now while Jake installs rear a/c blower and other sleeper parts and trim. Also, the piping from the turbo was changed out with some real shiney stuff.

Still got the floors covered with moving blankets as they piece together the dash and steering column. There are a lot of parts to put back when you strip one to bare metal.

Last couple days chasing down a fan wire, not sure if they changed it out, jumped to another, or the factory wire is a no go.

It's like slomo at this point.

I'd have fired that feller for that. He don't know squat about IT if he has to block TBH.

Sorry for the rant. Carry on.
