Took my Top Off today for the first time. seriously
140,000 miles over 17 years old, and my Lead Mechanic shows me the original plastic pins that prevent the frame from sliding out of the gutter... we had to remove them and the brittle bastards broke..

It's exciting to have such a knowledgeable person to show me the ropes... and the where & why's to wrench what. I've done my homework too. So there's a few things we'll be addressing this week. And so the rebuild finally goes to the next level. THANKS CHUCK!! crtaylor

The vid really took a back seat to the Tear Down. Never would have attempted this project without the help and friends that I have made here on WF. 50+ years old and used air tools for the first time. Rounded out 2 torx bolts and broke my 1st bit. (chuck's torx bit). Chuck said I done good today, feels like I did.

was a record breaking trip. 1350 miles round trip should have taken 24 hrs.. but it lasted 7 days and nights, abandoned a dodge durango, bought a ram 1500 which also broke down, rented a u=haul with car carrier, employed a 2nd truck to tow the booty trailer from carrolton ky to pittsburgh. etceterra.. etceterra.. Blah Blah Blah. but this tub is incredibly nice. Thanks to ibuildembig for understating the condition of this tub. probably was worth the trip.
