burlking-ha thanks man, i knew nothing going into this project but learned so much, with a ton of redues, but if you get a project done right the first time you might be superman.

tango-i wish i had loud horns on my bike when i had it could have been useful countless time next bike will have them forsure, gotta love them air horns.

cadillackid- i forgot about that amazing little black box i havent had a chance to hook it up yet just been useing dad obd2 for codes untill i move out. If you are like me i enjoy scaring people at any opportunity, so if you are in the crosswalk walking infront of me im going to get you, or sitting at a bus stop or being a pesky protestor. im going to have fun with them & so should you. those christmas light have been up for a few years, lol.

Man your bus is badass. Definitely love the black, those 7.3 oil coolers are completely different than the 6.0L oil coolers. The only time you'll be replacing it is when it starts leaking. Their pretty easy to replace just extremely messy. I'm also planning on paying mine black. How was doing the paint? I've spray painted a few shitty truck before but never anything that I want to look perfect. I'm fixing to start on body work this weekend.

thrum2590-Thanks, hopefully mine does not leak anytime soon, would hate to change it. I did a majority of sanding by hand one very very painfull stroke at a time, i think i developed carpool tunnel in my left hand from it, & i still have alot to go.
I paid most attention in the crack's & screws, when ever i felt i was done with a section, i walked away for a few day's after i washed down the section, than went back to sanding same spot to insure i get everything.
I used rustolean flat black spray paint from home depot for the sub-layer & i used a paint roller to cake on Behr interior/exterior gloss black paint from home depot aswell, i already used 1 gallon & working on my 2nd, no doubt their will be a 3rd gallon. The paint & the texture of it feels & look's like rhino lineing, i love it.

Can't wait to see the final finish. I'm planning on starting the body work soon and definitely not looking forward to it at all. I have a little sander but think it's gonna be easier to do most of it by hand. Plus I still have a good day of doing some bondo work.

I am done modifying & upgrading the engine; i think, who knows i will find something to do to it later on down the road but for now i can finally work on other things.
Platstidiping all that pops off on my dash including both pillars, the dogghouse & the attachment piece that goes on the doghouse. Correction cadillack kid they have not had the x-mas lights up for years but they sure will have them up for years.


Also the protestor rammer, i am going to build for it i already have my protestor draggers on the rear (2 large hooks that the school district already had on for reasons i dont know.)

Neighbors dog has been of issue since they moved in not too long ago. 120 pound St. Bernard. First incounter that big ol'bitch came running up on me & my boxer, while we were on the front porch walking in the house., about to fight with my dog i sprayed it with a hose.
2nd encounter i was standing outside near the sidewalk, working in my driver side cab with my back to the streets & this big bitch came creeping up behind me got maybe 15ft before owner came to grab it.
3rd. Time dealing with this dog it got out & attacked my little sisters cheeewaawaa, imagine a huge st. Bernard pouncing on a cheewaawwaa.? because my sisters dog is a ghetto street tramp & roams the hood barking at the neighbor she got what she deserved.(no she did not die)
Next time that dog so much as smells a blade of grass on my property i got something for your ass bitch.
I am going to put one on each door of my build.

I have a super soaker juiced up with skunk oil (used in trapping as an attractant).
Roaming dog/cat gets squirted. No harm no foul but Spot goes ome and the owners get to deal with thier roaming critter.
Maybe they will contain the critter or get sprayed again.
