Just a quick update and sorry that it has taken so long to get
any updates posted on the site! We've been going through a lot of changes here
recently, among which is that we've moved! Yes, we're no longer in the Rochester
area anymore. We've relocated to Albany, NY as of January, 2008. Oh sure, we'll
probably still get out to Rochester as well as many other places throughout New York
over time. Just our home base has changed. Now comes the fun part of meeting new
people, finding out about clubs and organizations, and finding good mechanics in the
Capitol Region. Feel free to E-mail us if you know any places or have any tips!

The truck has finally been fixed! The damage from the accident
(see the photos section for more) is now repaired. We were waiting for the
new fender and core support to be painted, which was taking a while. Once we
finally got that taken care of, then we had to find time to get it all assembled.
Fortunately, our neighbour Paul is a mechanic at a local
shop (Names withheld to protect the innocent...) and he offered to put it together
for us after hours at the shop. So, after about 2-3 weeks, he had it all done. I must
say, for a VERY reasonable price too! He even got it inspected so it was all ready to
roll again. It looks as good as new, you'd never even know it got hit. (Except I was
dumb enough to say anything about it, ahem...) THANKS PAUL! Guess all those years of
fixing up race cars paid off...
October 02, 2007:
As of today, we have updated several pages on the site. We have the
"Project", "Progress" and "Photographs" sections completed. The photos of the wreck
and the new taillights are posted as well. We also modified the
home page to include a site hit counter, which hopefully won't stay on low numbers
for too long...
Ahem, in any event, we will keep the site updates coming
so be sure to keep coming back! We also got new parts for the truck to fix the damage
on Monday: The left front fender, inner wheel well and core support. Now, we are just
waiting on paint and clear so we can paint the new fender and then install the parts.
Hopefully, this will be done next week. This week, we're hoping to pick up the
new rear bumper.
September 26, 2007:
Today we launched the 1500tt.com website. However, we still
have a LONG way to go! Many of the pages aren't finished yet and so far all we have is
basically a placeholder site for now. But fear not! Updates will ensue shortly!
In other news today, the new taillights for the truck arrived
this afternoon as well. They look great and add a nice style to the truck, I think. The
real main reason we replaced them, however, wasn't for looks, but the left rear taillight
shorted out and the whole unit was rendered useless. They want too much money for an OEM
lens unit, so it was cheaper to order BOTH lights new off of E-bay. They are aftermarket
lenses, but they do look great as opposed to many of the Altezza lights out there that just
look ugly. Pictures of the lenses before and after will be coming soon.
