Painted all of the suspension and rear-end pieces yesterday with the POR-15 that Mark gave me.  That stuff does harden like a rock!  And it is absolutely true about it not coming off of your hands.  I’ve got the tattoo’s now to prove it.  Also drilled the first pieces of aluminum.  I’m looking forward to mounting those in the next day or two.  Went shopping for various parts on Saturday.  I basically walked away with nothing.  It’s absolutely true what I’ve heard about the knowledge level of the kids working at the big auto stores…clueless.  I ended up at a smaller place where they seemed to know what I was talking about at least.  Still didn’t end up buying anything as they didn’t have exactly what I was looking for.  For instance, I wanted KYB shocks and all they had was Monroe.  I think I’ll probably go with the Monroes though.  They are definitely less expensive.  Tonight, John Wilkins will be stopping by to help me weld some stuff onto the frame.  This will be my first official attachment of something to the frame!  Could that be considered the beginning of “the build”?  Hey, it’s only been a year and a month since I took delivery!  I also managed to get the Upper Intake off.  Unfortunately I had to chop up the top plaque.  I don’t really care about the plaque as much as I want to be able to get the screws out so I can add a new plaque later.
