    When I bought the truck 3 years ago I didn't even know it was possible to do this with bondo.. It's y I jumped on the truck without lookin, then had to buy another 1 for the cab!! It took me 2 hours to clean off the grill.. The damn thing wasn't really even dent or rusted under all this crap.. We have a 'specific' name for this style paint job down here in the south but Ill be respectable on here! Lol

    If you didn't see bondo in your finger, maybe you should keep grinding someone could have put and extra layer of skin over it! Thats how I found out if my harmonic balancer was torqued all the way down. I went till it pinched my finger then all in the same stroke forced it till it fully jambed my thumb in there turned the crank nearly ripping off my nail! Yep it was tight!

    My god man!!! I hate that kinda news.. Least u knew it was within a thumbs tolerance:D I was messin around with a f150 I had and got too close to the cooling fan... It took the skin clean off two knuckles.. Haven't done it again in the 10 years since!! I quit diggin on my finger, I was afraid I was gonna find bondo if I kept it up lol.. But what's fun is goin for the grinder switch to see it dosent work, tracking the problem to the cord inside, plugging it in, coming out to the driveway and finding the grinder cross the road running haha..

    Gotta make some 1/2" spacers for the sector.. Iv heard the argument over and over on how the frame isnt strong enough to drill and bolt a power setup too.. Maybe with 38" mud tires but with streets, BS!! Iv seen it and will prove it worthy here..
