Welcome, Brady!
Cool business! You get to buy all the parts with the customer's money... Now THAT sounds like fun.
I can imagine gleaming over the finished product and sharing in the customer's pride. Plus, what learning experiences... You can certainly share those with us!
Good luck, buddy! We hope to see some of your "projects in process"... GOOD advertising!

Hi Brady,welcome from Scotland, there's a few guys here into 4-53 Detroits,most noteably Grigg.
I'm sure you'll bump into him over at the BigBolt section.
I'm sure you can share tips.
Good luck
Jock.

I've definately got this truck thing in my blood ... my DNA sequence has torque settings
