(no subject)

Been working on the truck more, fixed the right fender with a rope and a come-a-long, pulled the metal bit that holds the fender forward a bit and tightened it back down, so the door doesn't hit it anymore.

I went to find a pair of doors for the truck, and found a perfect one, but it has the wrong trim on the bottom (75, I want 78 trim) but the top trim I might be able to jack.

The first place I got to wouldn't let me on the lot because they were closing, but they bitched a kid out for driving crazy. I'm glad. That wasn't my only bad driving adventure, a guy was tailgating me, so I matched speeds with the car next to me for several miles, lots of fun, he flipped me off, I smiled, waved and grinned.

Hooray for junkyards!

I visited 6 junkyards today in search of doors for my dad's truck, and found a pair that are all but perfect.  On the passenger side door, there is a small dent below the keylock.  I also found a chrome plate that goes around the headlight (its really plastic) because we had one chrome and one regular one, and a new headlight retension bracket to replace a bent one.

I also found a camper special logo, but I don't know if I'll be able to get it because theres a beehive under the hood somewhere.  Perhaps a can of raid will allow me to retrieve it.

I almost got the chance to pick up a handle for the tailgate of my merc, but I'm not able to get to it because they hit something and bent the tailgate in.  There was also a Marqui sedan with power windows and seats, but its got a brown interior.  Hopefully I'll be able to get the power windows/locks into my car, but that'll have to wait until I have the money to do so.  What a nifty upgrade, 5 power windows!  I hope I hope I hope...
