    Sorry to hear about the issues, both with the truck and the medical. Hopes and prayers for getting the medical straightened out.

    Hope all is not too serious Mike, do not need health issues at any point in time, I have had my share of recent note. Hope you do manage to find a decent body man to get the cab done.

    Agree! If someone is a contractor who installs septic tanks and takes the job of replacing an old one he can not use the excuse of a bad smell!

    Don't over do it folks, i'm not dying. The medical issues will eat into my slush fund for the truck. My legs could rot off but the truck needs to be finished. And there is nothing wrong with my legs.

    But the real kicker is I showed up at the body shop to pick up my parts at 9:00 a.m.. And the body guy was fast at work on my truck cab, apologizing all over hell and that he would
    have the cab ready in a little less than two weeks, so after that about all I could say is {lets hope so and carry on}. It seems someone put a hex on him.

    This is just an amazing project! My son has one on a smaller scale. A VR 6 in a Rabbit pickup. Looking forward to the completion of them both!

    Heck I would have called for you. I cant wait a year for more build pictures!! LOL
    Keep on trucking, Truck Shop.
    I have a similar story. While building my dump truck I had the box sandblasted and painted. wasn't getting done. Drove down with trailer to pick it up. Guy says its in the paint shop drying, painted it this am. He must have knew I was coming. :) He is lucky it was done, I was ready to blow.

    WARNING:
    If you rat rod it I will come out there and help RZ take it apart so you can do it right!!:p (but I know you will do an awesome job the first time)

    You guys are pretty rabid over my Mack critter.-----On second thought I'm feeling kind of tired and it might take me four years to complete:p. But I did buy a nice boomerang antenna
    for the top of the cab and a fiberglass wing to go behind that:D.
