After all that work, I can't believe you're charging the battery of the electronic drive and going hybrid!  The gauge clearly shows no fuel present in the picture, and you're throwing the key away!

Don, that turned out totally perfect!
You need to stick the green water can in the middle to keep the camo appearance up.
Not sure on my thoughts of the red spashes on the various points but I think I'm diggin it.

Mike,I have a funny feeling he tried to sneak a start in.
And after build day 5,458 the quiescent drain on the battery had lowered it to an inefficient level.
As in it was dead, and wouldn't turn over.
Or maybe...

Well I guess we'll see.
I just don't want to wind up missing a digit or limb.  I can sometimes get in a hurry to get results.

My pleasure
It's really all for "His" glory, NOT MINE!
Seriously!

It's really not all that great. I'd say it is "Serviceable," Maybe even good, but certainly not great. Having said that I appreciate that all of you like it and are enjoying this wacky build. As long as it serves the fellowship of his people, I'll keep truckin' on with it...

I say wait until next year to crank it...  Waited almost a year already, what's a few more months going to hurt?  Jan1 fire up party...  Who knows, the dodge may come with it's own "fireworks show" when you go to crank it...    ;D

Be fitting for the time of year...

Naw
I don't go by calendar days, but actual days I spend working on it. So if I don't work on the truck for another 5 days, the day I do will be build day 300

But I reserved that for part 7!
