    Default Just wanted to check in and say Hi since I have not been on in awhile. My 89 sub...

    ...urban project is coming along. I received my multi-carrier bumper from tactical armor group and it is kick butt. I am going to have it rhino lined along with the front bumper and a strip down both sides. I have some N fab side bars on order...

    I finally have all the quarters welded in place and most of the ruff in work done. I am probably 8 hours of body work away from a trip to the spray booth.

    Today, however, I got some bad news. My A/C compressor is shot so I have to fix that now. I can't believe how much the freon has gone up since last year, UNBELIEVABLE!!!

    A/C is a must in this sweat hole called Florida. Anyway, I will post up some more pics of the progress soon. Happy Memorial day and RIP for those who gave all!
