    HAHA! Actually, ALL of my gauges are goofy. I was about 1/2 tank when I took the pic this morning!

    Got more done! The weather has been fin my favor. @Grit dog have you ever applied primer directly to a freshly blasted panel or is it wise to take the white off? I know it needs to be cleaned so I probably answered my own question!

    Idk, I’m not too familiar with sandblasted surfaces except in like industrial applications and solvent cleaning the blasted surface is still necessary.
    Can’t imagine anymore than a wipe down with prep solvent is needed before priming?

    That truck is going to be beautiful, quality work you got going there!

    Today i replaced my tie rods due to play, now tight as a button. My floor pans came in, along with my passenger rocker. Also sanded the doors down after being blasted (they were supposed to sand and epoxy but didn't) and i've pulled off the cowl panel/screen and wiper arms; deep cleaned all the years of dirt and debris. Slowly but surely.

    You ever have one of those days where you feel like someone just stabbed you in the eye with a needle?
    20210610_191055.jpg
    So after getting a piece of metal in my eye while working on my sisters car, I went to the ER to get it checked out. They said that it was no big deal if it doesn't hurt real bad.
    20210610_230828.jpg
    The doctor insisted on trying to take it out though, then he proceeded to accidently stab me in the eye with a needle.
    20210611_115927.jpg
    Now I they want me to wear an eye patch and put drops in every hour for the next couple weeks.
    20210606_200421.jpg
    So after a $750 deductible to get stabbed in the eye, Its 2 am, I don't have my glasses, I'm in a shit load of pain, and to top everything off, O'l Yeller won't turn over, the starter spun, but the solenoid didn't engage it.

    So I had to roll start the damn thing, and drive home mostly blind.

    Things could be worse though, I could get stabbed in the eye with a needle.

    I feel your pain. Have done this numerous times thru the years. You'd think after the first time, the glasses would be worn. For some stupid reason, I seem to still not use them.
