You're stronger than me!
Well, I've actually been thinking about it every day for a month. Visualizing, rehearsing, etc.
I have considered it so much that the other day I walked into the shop and was surprised to see that they weren't cut yet

I hear Honda fart can noise....

Pro, I know the feeling... Too much to do and too little time.

You do have an elephant leg up on me though - you have a REAL shop!
I'm riding the skin of my azz finding places to work on my projects when I'm out on assignments. My shop at home is very dusty. I'm never there.

Flux welders and bench grinders don't cut it... Although I can't complain.
I'm in a foreign land (Californication) and I do have a shop to work in.
A lift- Thank you - there is a God.
I am doing the best I can with what I have. It's not as pretty as I would like, but it is def functional
These guys here have taken me in as family. They are real credit to humanity! ;)

Harley - if you happen to check in on this thread, I am going back and forth whether to drive this rig to your area. The 5 speed was a total bust, so the 4 speed is still noisy with a bad input bearing. Will it make it?
Sort of like your adventure with (Pat?) back to Michigan.
I've had many similar adventures with bust downs on the road. Somehow (like you) I've McGivered out.
I can rent a car on points - I have plenty - and not have any issues.
Ok... Weigh in
Should I? Shouldn't I?
My final destination - Carson City, NV.
Sacramento, Ca., Seattle, WA,. Carson City, NV.
Total miles - About 1400

If you ask me, I'm definitely going to tell you to do that!

Matter of fact the latest S10f friend's truck that has graced my shop left this last weekend, so there's an empty spot for you. They've all been SS w/late model ZQ8s so far, but that's not because I discriminate.

One chopped fender is all 'boxed in'. Took all evening. The other one will go a lot faster. Not pretty but it won't really show.

Ha... Not pretty?
I'll post a pic of my exhaust with the penguin poop flux welds.
Nothing a flap wheel and time can't make prettier...

This looks like a pro welder next to my exhaust flux welds... :p

I saw - in your 'not the first time' thread.
At least you got it done. Too many folks don't even make the effort.
