    I’m thinking that the transmission wear has to be weight-related… loading the bus down with stuff and towing the baja?

    I’m thinking I just had TOO much fun with that transmission this year!!!!ย  ย What ever did it… Don’t care too much.. Now I know I have a FRESH new tranny for a few years to come!!!!ย  ๐Ÿ˜Ž

     

    I had enough poly to put one coat on my fenders.. darn it… I will sand em and recoat later… ๐Ÿ˜Žย  Pretty nice for one coat of poly though.

    Got my dually hood all stripped and blasted like the fenders.ย  Needs a lot of freakin work… 8-(ย  ย  oh well..ย  I really want to get my truck back on the road…. ๐Ÿ˜Žย  Need to get that hood body worked and primed in the next few days.. and paint my front clip… ๐Ÿ˜Žย  I wanna modify my front bumper… and make it thicker… ๐Ÿ˜Ž But my lazy bone is kicking in and saying..”just paint that shit and put it back on!” ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    and I got this fresh tranny in the clean shop for the pamper.. I guess I got things to keep me busy… ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    I’ve been trying to get the wife to go with me to Orvis for three weekends in a row. Guess I’m just going to have to do the bus tripping alone.

    I am ALWAYS due for a soak!!!ย  I have only been able to gather 3 busses at once at Orvis..ย  we should reset that record next spring…. Most people feel like it is too cold to camp right now,… ๐Ÿ˜Žย  ย The Pamper is set up for cold weather camping…. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    Thanks Will for helping me with that project… another load off my mind… ๐Ÿ˜Žย  ๐Ÿ˜Žย  Although the anxiety of watching him was rough on me… ๐Ÿ˜Žย  He’s still learning.. but he did good far as I can tell…. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    I want more of this look on the front of my truck… I was thinking about adding 3″ of material and make the bumper wider.. but I think I want more of this look here… So I may try just going straight down with it… ๐Ÿ˜Žย  Like this…

    my 12 gauge to make my semi bumper didn’t make it this week… so I stated painting shit yesterday,,,,ย  Back side of my hood and my Newly reshaped front fenders…. They look tit’s….ย  ย I’m gonna make everything fresh and L31 and then ask Ray Drake to help me with some sort of graphic’s…ย  I’m thinking of going two tone, like the older body style… and then have Ray put some Flames inside the two tone..ย  I dunno.. I want something to make it pop more than just all blue…

    maybe like this??? sorta
