    1. desludge the engine
    2. clean engine bay
    3. repack/grease the birfield joints
    4. set the alignment
    5. replace the stearing ball joints
    6. all new fluids
    7. cut out rust holes and weld plates into the frame
    8. piss off my wife for being in the garrage 24x7
    9. keep working on it anyways
    10. install 2m/440 ham radio
    11. install cb radio
    12. install 6 port 12v powerpole fuse block (b/c its a 24v vehicle)

    thanks! its been a joy to work on. However the folks ive run into around town are another story... kinda makes me want to gouge my eyes out in protest of man's foolish stupidity, but that really doesnt help anything now does it...
