    Randy (flatpower) dropped of the 32 p/u at my house the end of last week... Ive been drooling over this truck ever since he picked it up. Cant wait to learn and finish this truck up. Goal is to get this truck safe and road worthy by spring. Extremely extremely excited WOO! Plenty to do but as you can see (randy's build thread) hes addressed almost everything already.

    Spring will be here before you know it. Hell the first of the year is just about a 1 week away. No rest for the weary! Nice start. Looks like all you lack is finishing it up.

    Yup! That's the whole point! The sooner it's running and driving the sooner everything else can get done! :)

    Thanks everyone else! Def. a great start. Randy and his pops are unlimitedly knowledgeable and tallented. It's really spoiling to have Randy's help in this! Cant wait to see this project through! Wooo!
