Modern ‘science’: the wonder of a
pre-determined mind…

The ‘baseline belief’ of astronomy:
“Any day now, we’ll pick up a tiny,
coded signal from outer space. Then
we’ll know for certain that there is
intelligence out there, because coded
information does not arise by chance”

The ‘baseline belief’ of biology:
The precisely coded genetic information in
every cell would fill many books…
but we know for certain that no intelligence
could have created life.”

Here are some recent pictures of the truck including one of the upgraded truck bed.
http://davemsanders.com/TheTruck.aspx

The bed had a 1/4 inch diamond plate steel sheet welded in to it. I did not want to cut it out so a wood bed was not possible (tried that...a mess and a disaster) so I treated the bed with Herculiner and had it covered in diamond plate aluminum. It is holding up VERY nicely.

I also replaced the bucket seats with a Teas Designs bench made for the truck. MUCH MORE COMFORTABLE..

Finally, a look at the engine compartment and (sorry, could not resist) a picture of her FIRST trophy. smile

I guess you lost the dentures and I lost my eyes. Where are those pics?

Would love to!

You are absolutely correct. "Might as well itis" has nearly broke me.

I am still working on a few things to be corrected but having a tough time getting something done.

I need to replace the oil pan but the engine has to come out to do that. I have a gas leak that needs fixing (minor, only leaks a little when I fill it up) and the starter gives a terrible noise once in a while (Fat Man's thinks its a cracked flywheel but I am not so sure. I think it is a shim issue). Once these things are corrected, I have it FINISHED.

Ran out of money and now trying to find someone who will trade some parts for the work (I have a couple of thousand dollars worth of hipo stuff)

I'd do it but don't have the equipment (or the time for that matter).
