Progress Bar

      Well, as you can see from the progress bar above, we are already starting behind with this project! We had a mishap on the I-81 expressway out in Syracuse and hit a guard rail in the rain - OUCH! Fortunately, these are pretty durable trucks, so damage was minimal. However, we still have the task of replacing the front fender and core support and re-painting the truck just to return it to how it looked before. We already have the body panels necessary and are waiting on paint right now. We're hoping to have the damage fixed within 2 weeks tops. We are also replacing the rear bumper at this time and have already replaced the taillights. For pictures, go to the "Photographs" section of the site. Below are a list of planned repairs or updates to the truck as well as a list of currently applied updates:
