    Made some progress

    As some know I have dealing with the medical B.S, but I did get a little done this week end, bumper caps made up...no they didnt just slip on had to make shims due to the fact the water pipe is not the same size as exhaust pipe. still have to paint it with bed liner, rear spoiler ended up keeping and painted it with spray on bed liner witch is a perfect match for the bed rail covers ( paint color will settle in a few days), started on the graphics but I am waitng for a new air bush bottle and sword brush, to paint in the leafs witch are on my avatar, hope my hand is still steady enough......tail gate handle is being flip to the inside so that the hole where the handle was will have the bracket for my drag chute... not alot but I did feel better about making some head way still got a lot of elbow grease to do

    You're moving forward, that's all that counts. Medical crap sucks and expensive. Been through my share lately.

    Good job lash. Sometimes a little progress makes me motivated to do even more. We're all on each other's sides here and want you to be successful. I know around January we're going to be doing some remodeling and my progress may slow.. Hopefully I can make some minor progress at that time and stay connected to the people on this forum. Unlike some other forums I've been on , there's no butt heads here. Just good advice and love for all things Gasser. God Speed.

    Good to see you back at it Lash. Take it slow and don't overdo it. The truck will be there. I'm battling the locked in a dungeon feeling so I'm not doing much either.

    Hope you're feeling better soon! I haven't done much more than tune on mine lately. Got stalled with helping my daughter most the summer, so missed a lot.

    Mario I bought the Deist bag with plate in black......paid to much $119 shipped, saw Amazon had one a week later new for I think $79..........average cost seems to be $90 to 130 very well made went with the 9x9 seems to be about right.....I almost bought the whole chute and every thing but it will never get used and they do have to be deployed or unpacked on a regular bases to prevent mold and deterioration. the only down side is the holes for the support plate are not already punched so I will have to be getting out my ring kit and pliers to make them, dont know if its like that on all the bags, but I hate cutting into new fabric but you got to what you got to do

    I usually find them once a year at the big April swap meet used, or at the NW Drag Racing swap meet in January. But rarely see chutes any other time for sale. I've got a working chute on my Austin, but never pulled it, and wont. It's strictly for giggles.
