    you, like many people, seem to have a hard time understanding my fascination with photos of things

    Oh I get it....hehe Just don't have time to post things until I get this truck done. I'm in a time crunch!

    I spent a good/crappy 3 hours today chasing metric hose and got turned down or laughed at everywhere I called.....hehe Only place that said they have some is a Mercedes dealer but they were too busy to go out and get the size for me.

    Just re-installed my Pioneer AVIC D3 in my Mk5. I've been without music since roughly february. SO nice to have tunes again.

    no kidding... going without music for a few days is one thing. Not having it for months is a killer

    Well I got the cab on with the help of some motivated friends. They had soo much motivation that I failed to take any pictures. Yeah yeah I know......

    I had to wrap it up working on it at 1015pm because the mosquito's were eating me alive!

    Today I worked on the truck and made sure it had spark, fuel and air.

    Got the spark figured out and made some progress on the fuel issue. The tank has a suction tube that is sucking air because everything is old and not letting it suck up fuel.
    I bought an electric fuel pump and stuffed the line into a 5 gallon gas tank and it started right up!

    I then drove it around the neighborhood for 40 with NO lights and NO brakes.......hehe
    The e-brake worked though!

    Then later my buddy and I got to bleeding the brakes. Going well then we got to the last brake bleeder and it frigging twisted off! We then broke a bunch of tools trying to get the lug nuts off!

    I have to wake up early tomorrow to find something that works!

    still figuring out what to do about spacers. polished out one of the Rials with 1000 wet then rouge then blanc. i think i've reached the level of finish i desire... now to bring them all up to the same standard.

    Well this weekend we trailered the truck down to South of Portland and I wheeled the crap out of it.

    Didn't break anything and it was a good time!

    I need to make a list of things that I need to get for it...
