    Just an update... Got my Benz towed and nearly $400 later got my car back. Have not even owned it 30 days of the 45 day grace period to get plates and the city towed it no warning at all. Anyway I have lots of new stuff for it coming in. New tires, hood strut, fuel pumps (there are 2 fuel...

    Well I am still lurking in the shadows here, working full time I don't get much time to work on anything and the weather in Indiana has been 4 seasons every week so it rains every time I try to get something done. Very frustrating to say the least. Anyway figured I'd give an update on how...

    Ok guys I'm out. This bike thing just isn't going as planned, I get very little time off work to do anything. I have too many other things on my plate, and not nearly enough time in the day. Also been having problems with theft in the area and had a spare wheel stolen from the back of my project...

    Ok finally got some time to work on the bike... stripped it to the frame and shot it flat black greased everything and reassembled it. Still working on the front gears trying to get the first gear downshift dialed in. Other than that it rides just like new. Still gonna leave you in suspense...

    Ok guys I'm done stalling. I had to wait on this crank puller to do full disassembly for paint... Didn't see it shipped directly from China. Now the bike build can begin! Waiting for the new carb for the truck too. Besides the truck is inspiring the bike as they will match so kinda need to...

    Also found out how to get my pictures right side up, the orientation of the phone when the photo is taken was causing it. Flipped the phone and the pics came out right.

    Refurbished my hub caps today for the rat rod. Truck needs a few more coats but it's a rat rod so it doesn't need to be perfect.

    Ok so progress... There is none. But my truck looks sweet now... Building my first rat rod. I'll probably procrastinate till the last week then jam something together last minute.

    Yeah i was fine, the Hyundai not so much. Got my insurance settlement and doing the work myself im going to save a bunch of money. Enough so that i bought another truck. Cost me $300 and a pistol. (It was a friend) so i got a 1981 GMC C1500 pickup with a straight 6 2wd. Going to be nice saving...

    Guess this proves my point... Got rear ended last Friday night and i drove home. Bumper has a slight dent and a bit of twist and the brackets sheered off and broke at the bolts. The Hyundai is totaled from a less than 30mph collision.... I drove home. #classicnotplastic

    Well I'm back! Been really busy as of late with my job running the parts store 40 hours a week, restoring my chevy truck which is now coming together while being driven daily. And my time is freeing up. So i am thinking of a build modern interpretation of an oldschool bobber but with attitude...

    I know i work at a parts store and turned down an offer of 5 grand just this morning at work. To me I couldn't buy anything as reliable and tough as this for 5 grand so I'll keep it. I've put lots of new parts in too.
