    I'll have to get some. Pics from my phone look like they were taken with a potato. Lol . Might even make a montage video of the build. Might be interesting

    Turned out to be a big project. The transmission I had wouldn't work. So I had to spurge and get a new t56 magnum 6 speed. $3200 i did not plan on spending..
    I'm getting closer every day. This is a Nicole dime build. Every time you turn around it's $25 to $100 here and there.
    Me and the boy decided we're going to make it a grocery getter. Full interior and adult tasteful mods. No boy racer stuff. It's nice having a project that doesn't involve guns at the moment. It bides my time and keeps my hands busy. Keeps me from burning threw ammo. So since guns and ammo are expensive now. It's the perfect time to shift focus alittle.

    Guns are way cheaper than cars. At least they have been for me
    Common sense is so uncommon nowadays it ought to be reclassified as a super power

    Yes and no. Buying a gun a month and going to the range a few times a month is cheaper. Buying a gun or 3 a month and shooting 50k rds a year is not...lol. I like guns and competitive shooting way more than cars at this point in my life. But getting behind the wheel of something fun to drive is a big part of my past. I like going fast. Shooting, driving , surfing, I'm an adrenaline junkie. When I chased down a hit n run driver a few years ago I was in Nirvana the whole time. The world was clear and I was calm as a Hindu cow.. I live for that stuff.

    Welp.. project money pit is in full swing. Engine is almost 100percent ready. Trans should be ready for pick up this coming week. Ordered a stronger differential mount..since the gas tank is just above the diff flange... I figured I like being here on Earth and don't want to punch the spinning diff / drive shaft threw the gas tank...not in my best interest. Maybe next weekend will be go time to attempt to make 5.3 liters of American loving mate with it's Japanese hunny. Hey that's kinda like my life...hehehe
