I came home from work yesterday to find this present from Mother Nature.

Bad luck John, I assume no-one was hurt?

I'm sure a man of your talents will knock things back in to shape pretty soon.
It's hard to tell from the pics but is the windshield OK?


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

No one was hurt and the winshied survived. I glassed it to keep the rain out (This is rainy season and we get rain every day). But somewhere in the future it is going to need a new roof welded on.

Johntsmith,

That smarts! I am over here on the spacecoast and will keep an eye out for a donor roof truck.Also have family in Lake and Marion County, I will let them know to keep an eye out. With a little look we might run across a cab with the doors and rocker rotted out and good roof.

Mother nature can play a lot of games. Recently we had an honest-to-God golf ball sized hail storm, dented the crap out of our Mazda. My '89 Bolt was parked next to it with no damage!!! (Fortunately my '40 was in the barn. But, I doubt it would have been damaged!)


A day without sunshine is like, well, ..... dark!
