    Nice progress. I also have yet to do a segment swap for my trans am. Ended up just going through all settings in hptuners and removing auto trans related parts.

    Pretty much just been driving it. It's been 100% reliable so far with the LS swap. I literally haven't touched or replaced a single part on the truck (well...unless you count the auto-> manual swap stuff, but the 4L80E was working perfectly fine when I pulled it out).

    Probably going to have the headliner redone here soon, and maybe the seats. It still needs paint, too; unfortunately, I just can't take the truck off the road long enough to really get it painted the way I want to. I won't do a cheapy Maaco, and I use the truck too much to have it off the road for 6-12 months for a proper paint job. Not sure what I'll do there. I don't want to see it rust away, either... Between a rock and a hard place on that one. I'll get it figured out someday.

    Simple. Buy one to drive while the other gets painted.

    He moved on up to the country, he actually lives a few miles from Abby now. I still get here, just not as often as I should.

    Hey fellas! Still alive and kicking over here. As Retro mentioned, I upped and moved about an hour away from my old place, out to the country. Got a nice little place with 5 acres now. Still have the 88' crewcab, the 80' El Camino, and the Vette. Just added an 02' 2500HD Duramax to the stable too. It's pretty mint, with 91k miles on it.

    Glad to see you all around! Haven't had time to do much in the way of projects with the house move, but we are getting settled in and I have some plans in mind to get started.
