Used some eastwood rust converter with the wand to spray the whole area.

Added a simple mount on the back, hooks and a loop to the bucket and 80 watt LEDs to the back.

Changed the oil out of the duramax today, replaced the Fass fuel filters on the pump, need to replace the factory fuel filter still.

Garage smells proper diesel fuel and exhaust mixed with stinky 10k diesel oil.

Need to do the same, but have to wait for another trip up to NV.

Chugging, slow as may be.

Finally got the rest of the sludge out of the bottom. Just need to get some converter in there.

Little more painting and wiring/electrical.

Trying to get it up to the prop this weekend. Going to take the claw up too as is. Just going to shim the rams and see how it goes. Should fit in the bucket, 1 inch less than the bucket.

Wish I had pics but that is just how my 77 looked. I did have a skid plate with 2 of those cross members though

Just make sure it has a nice skid plate (it was 1/4 thick) not like the bozo stamped unit we have on the dmax.

So last night I am pulling into a quick stop. Lots of merging traffic on left, I am turning right and its dark. As I turn a guy on a bike is coming at me (wrong side of road, no light or reflectors) he swerves and missis me. I am happy about that, would have been messy.

I park and start going and here he comes yelling at me for almost hitting him. I tell him he is in the wrong and figure its over. Someone walks over from in front of the store (its a hangout for some) and says did you hit me grandpa. He gets just close enough to blow some smoke towards me. I tell him, back off, non of your business and if you blow that at me again I'll start by slapping it out of your hand. He backs away and goes into the bushes, returning but keeping his distance this time.

Man on bike is still yelling and I tell him the same as before, he says I am threatening him. I am standing next to my truck as he rants, but his bark was all he had it seems. Store clerk is asking about the problem, and I fill him, do my thing and leave, looking over my shoulder of course.

Didn't want to go hands on, but it worked out. I did have a big can of OC in my hand if needed. Its fun to see people roll around and cry sometimes.

Well, its just the one side so not that bad.

Replaced the out teeth on the bucket, insides were still pretty good.

Rear panel back on, just needs a little paint.

"Skylight" came out good.

Shouldn't it be forward of the axle a little? Wouldn't you need a little weight transfer and on a steep hill the CL would be behind the CL if centered, not good.

Axle CL seems the way to go.

After moving stuff around I am back to finishing.

Got new lexan up on the roof today, old was nasty. Used silicon vs the 3M tape they had, way cheaper and could adjust for a few seconds.

Doing some work on the bucket too. Got in new teeth as these are all diff lengths, namely end ones are used pretty much up.

Question on the quick release teeth though. I believe mine are installed backwards. Shouldn't tapered side go the other way? This way gives no give to the mount at all.

Lots of nice parts,,,, :likebutton: Are you there to help?

Those screw comp are supposed to be smooth and produce less heat.

So he can actually tune on the dyno, not just mail you a tune months later?

Will you have dial a tune for diff fuel or uses? Makes sense with towing, cruising or tackling mulch beds.

Moved both the LS motor and air comp to the side of the house. Ending up taking the better part of the day trying not to drop anything.

Have to get it done this week and up at the prop. Garage is such a mess I can barely work on anything.

Had a cracked weld on the bucket, cleaned that up. Looked for hooks to place on the bucket, MIA for now. (messy garage)

Since it is running though I used it to move both my LS motor and the air comp to the side of the house.

Well, having both a Moss 500 and a Winchester Semi for hunting, I got the KSG several years ago. I have shot it many time on the range and outdoors.

I love the gun, no issues except you cannot baby it when racking it. Perhaps that will get better, but knowing that is OK.

Yep, you have to select which mag, no big deal but I added the extension for that. Also have the door breach muzzle device and keep a light on it.

I love that it is compact, holds 14 rounds, legal in ALL states and you can turn in a doorway without lowering the muzzle.

They are about 1/2 what I paid for mine (factory LEO purchase) but would get another in a second.

Kids like the Mossberg better and it is fine too. 20in barrel, 8 rounds.

No pics I can find right now, but mine is black and OD, just what there was when ordered.

Why the lip on the pad PGE poured, JR? Seems like a trip hazard every time you come around that corner.

Pushes the fence to edge of garage and gives room to mount the comp. New fence going in to that point, planned.

My youngest would love a forge, he's knife crazy.

Got back to cleaning the Garage, its like a hurricane clean up in there with all the projects.

Moving the LS into storage outside and the big compressor to the side of the house. New slab poured by PGE that gives me a great place to put it.
