Last night (this morning) i got to sleep around 4am. I'm just trying to get some of the little stuff done. I got the rear axles pulled out and cleaned the differential.

I am just going out to get the rear brake stuff from the junk yard this afternoon. There is still plenty to do and I can't seem to shake the "gotta clean it and paint it" stuff.

My hands and shoulders are getting sore now. That may curb the desire to paint up all those little parts. We have to get some more glass beads for the parts blaster. I've been blasting with powdered glass for a while and the blaster is near empty.

A lot of little stuff (wiring, bleed brakes, plywood for the bed, etc.) needs to be done before I can leave. It seems I'm slowing down a bit, but I am still pumped about working on the IRWIPI. I want to get a real good nights sleep before I take off too.

I'll post again when I get the chance. Time for coffee.

It sounds like you're doing just fine!!

The excitement of the effort can be overwhelming sometimes. Just remember "safety first" .

We're all excited for you as well.

Yes, please be careful. With all that coffee, you must really be buzzing.

Save some of the little cleaning / painting stuff for along the way. In case you have a lay-over. Will give you something to do.

Beaver53, It seems to me that Saturday morning I hadn't gotten to bed until 5am.. I was still sleeping.

Uncle Carl and I went to the junk yard to get some rear brake parts. All the hubs we found were junk. I don't know why I didn't call before, but the parts house will have some here tomorrow for $23 each. DOUH!

I found a few nice pieces that were in nicer shape than mine like the fender emblem and the rear view mirror. Uncle Carl put the ram on the front bumper and straightened it out a bit.

I found a heater control and cables that were in real nice shape along with a parking brake handle and cable. I'm not going to get to the parking brake becasue of the rest of the cables, but I thought the price was right. I got a gas tank and sending unit, fender emblem, inside rear view mirror, emergency brake and cable, heater controls with cables, all the brake parts for the rear and a complet matching set of rust chrome lug nuts for $25. I think that was alright. We left the hubs there. It will cost $10 each for grinding of the hubs and they might be too thin already. For $23 I can have new hubs. No brainer to me.

Later,

Builder

Well Joker, I thought you were going to be here to help with the coffee. And I thought we were going to supervise Cletis. Where are you guys? I have to drink all this coffee by myself.

Back to work, my coffee break is over.
