when I chopped the roof on Dylans B2 I was like "Oh NO! What have I done!" but then I drove it and was like "I made this truck the SHIZZLE!!" It is an absolute blast (until it rained). Right now he is working with his friend that works at West MArine in Racine to make a custom snug canvas top and colapsible frame - like the ones on boats... He'll be making 2 and I will be doing the mod to my truck as well. When and if that becomes a reality There will be PICS.

FYI - I'll be in Burlington to work on Nephs truck this week - the alt belt snapped - bad bearing.... So I'll get pics of the Tonnue Top Roof Get-up.

ALSO Got a quote from Metzgir (SP?) Fabricators today to fix the rotten main support beam in the rear of my B2 - $250 includes materials and time. I'll be dropping it off on the 19th of July. He said - don't worry it'll be better than OEM, and well get it beefed up good. I'll be getting pics up soon after.

Both our B2's were crap (especially up here with all the rust) It makes it more rewarding to work on yer own rig -starting with nothing. If someone handed you a show truck off the bat you would never gain the wisdom and joy by doing it yourself. If you hada great truck right away you could never say "I built this I dint Buy It" my fist car was a total POS, but it taught me everything I needed to know about mechanics and engineering.

I know what you mean when you said the first time you drove the B2 you liked it.I was thinking this isn't a very nice car but I really liked it.Here I am with only the rear end and transfer case the same and still loving it.

Got to give you credit had me laughing with the dog tire and the flip flops.Painted a real good picture in my mind.

Boy you guys in the rust belt sure have more challenges than the west coast.We have rust but nothing like what your dealing with.

Yeah that was a tough morning... Having AAA-towing service would've been a plus. I had to carry the dog over my shoulders wearing flip flops when it was 12 degrees out. She was too freaked to walk & kept laying down. Thankfully it was only a mile away from the house.

Gave some Lovin' tro Dylan's Bronco this weekend! Seafoamed, Replaced Alternator, Belts, Oil Change and Pics of the Top.

In WISCONSIN - What 16 year old doesn't redecorate the front of there whip in a snow storm?

Here is "A" pic of the top we fabbed up for Dylans B2 outta a Ranger Tonnueou (SP) cover. More to come-phone died during pictures - sorry

God - I feel like I just did this! I just replaced the ALt on my truck LAST weekend! now doing it on Dylans! LOL- Actually he did it- I was just ther for Moral Support.


ALSO replaced the CAI on his B2

Followed by a nice SEAFOAM!





I'm sure the neighbors will appreciate fewer mosquitoes!

We will be working on welding on the wheel arches for my B2 and the rotten rear frame next weekend-more pics to come
