    hey TJ, hows this thing going? any more progress on it?
    like i said, seeing yours made me drag mine out again, and also like you, first one and i dont know jack about them 'cept they sure look good! 
    much MORE time consuming than throwing 4x4's together.....

    rest in peace Captain cat
    it is a hard time of the yr to lose a pet, my mastiff died almost exactly a yr ago, leaves a big void in your house, your life.....
    and you did the best thing you can do with your other puddy cats, let them see & know. dawg knows & understands where dixie is, but it is still hard on him, even a yr later. your cats will prob act weird for awhile as they deal with it in their own ways....they hurt just as much as we do

    if your going period correct, '61-'80 f350's almost always had a dana 70, after '80 they used the dana 70hd, then later went to the 10.5
    which bnl has for just over a buck
    i drill a hole threw them, put a piece of wire threw, then slip 1/8 tubing over & cut to length i need. nice thing about getting just the diff, you can narrow your dually fenders a bit & tuck the wheels in a little more to be more accurate, front tires dont line up with either rear tires on a 1:1

    Ford truck body's
    any fomoco fans? three fords that i won't be using
    '53 amt f100 (glue bomb) and '56 revell f100 (unbuilt) jammed together. needs finish bodywork, just the first coat of primer on. have the glass & most of the '56 to complete the truck 

    was going to do this                                                                                                                    or go the other way

    pretty nice glue bomb ranchero, has what looks to be a boss four-two-nine in it

    early '80's ford stepside. all there except susp & tires

    will swap for 67-72 chevy cab, first gen blazer body, second gen non-snapper blazer body, off road tires
    any '60-'87 chev/gm truck (no mini's) builts, gluebombs, whatever, prefer with glass

    great detail on the motor Ray!
    bet you could pull a wheelie with it!
    had a '77 datsun 620 with a blown up 4 banger when i was a kid, ended up shoe horning a 283  chev into it. if we threw 6 or 8 bundles of shingles in the back, you could pop a wheelie & carry the wheels for a few feet down the road....
  8. dieseldawg142 added a post in a topic ECSB Blazerburb   

    small update on the blazerburb.
    life's been hectic lately, really cutting into bench time, slow go
    int. tub pieced together, it's painted and almost done

    here's something you dont see much of nowadays...
    454 4-spd is almost done, and like a real chevy, the headers hit the frame, ended up putting a set of stock manifolds on

    as it sits now. frame is stretched, chassis/susp is about 80% there, most of the bodywork, scratched a visor, started a roof rack. got to do an exhaust, rad support, then start prettying it up

    was in wally mart couple days ago and found this neat-o little quad for 3 bucks. color sucked me in, almost a perfect match to the ECSB. i'll add some brake cables & detail it a bit

    not gonna get into a debate union vs non, my wife works in canada's biggest union (psac), just as many if not more deadbeats in her office, attitude is- union will cover my a**....
    lazy people in either, it's not exclusive, dont know what the roofing scene is like where you live, but up here, 99.8% of all roofing companys are non

    yup, how true Mark, in fact, i'm out the door in 15 mins  (5:30 am) going in early, cause i WANT this job done today....
    yup, yup, & yup
    been with this guy since '81 with a 10 yr break in the mid '90's, he's retiring next yr & building his retirement home six hrs away, not there a lot, pretty much delegates EVERYTHING to me....i stay completely out of the paper end of the business though, other than estimates
    usually go threw 8-10 guys to find one who actually knows what their doing...these guys were just too much, when you got a contractor yelling at you cause a half million dollar job is being held up.....

    lousy help
    boss hired another crew to help on a big job, for 2 weeks could not get the whole crew to show up, or some of them would show up FOUR HRS LATE, caused more grief & hassles than any good.
    yesterday was payday-surprise, surprise, every idiot finally showed up, but not for long. 
    "can i go to the bank", "can i go cash my check" all i was hearing, & i'm like no, we're at work & need to finish this job. two of them left at lunch to cash their checks, did'nt come back for a hr & a half.
    finally did what the boss did'nt, gave them their walking papers & sent the other 2 home, dont call us, we'll call you....
    stupidest thing, these idiots only had maybe 2 or 3 days wages coming for 2 weeks, one guy had 7 hrs, then they whine & complain, i just tell them, you dont get paid for being on payroll & sitting at home....
    now i'm on my second day over our time frame, but me & our reg crew should have it done today
