I had an epic shiner from a rock but my brain was solid.
Hey HalfFast, I agree your shiner was EPIC, But as your source of DNA, I can tell all readers that your brain has been scrambled for years! Looking forward to being a chase driver & pit slave.
see you in about a week.

In looking over Honzilla we noticed that the upper shock studs were bent from last year. So we cut the mounts off and after some work with a grinder and other metal flinging tools, welded them back on straight. We were able to move the mounts up and forward a bit.

Here is an after pic, forgot to get a before.



Should be ready for one last shakedown ride this weekend.


Oh and I think I predicted the shirt deal in one of my first posts.

Every so often I wake up in a cold sweat. Usually its the part of the dream right as the Suburban is rolling into some remote canyon, and I cant get out because all my luggage is on top of me .

Good to see all the progress, you guys should do great this year. Remember how she used to look?

Let me know if you need any help, I may have that week off.

Listen Buddy, I was driving & you were never in any danger. That's my story & I'm sticking to it.
