I would love that, but the truck is definitely not driveable at the moment =)

Also, I have some questions to bounce off you guys regarding the doors and skins. It's been virtually impossible to source new front door skins for the early anti-burst doors.

The alternatives are:
* to modify push-button door skins to fit the anti-burst doors. Not sure if this is even possible?
* run the doors without skins until I can find new front door skins. This might look a little funny, but it also might look fairly cool.
* fit the old terrible skins. This seems worse than running without skins, because it will: 1. waste paint, 2. look bad, 3. will have to be done again once new skins are sourced.
* run the doors without skins until I can find replacement doors for a reasonable price.
* ???

I actually don't understand this infatuation with doors and a top (or cage). You should have left those to last and got the thing running and back on the road. You'd have all summer to figure that other shite out.

With the wife 9 months pregnant, if I don't help get the kids to bed before I go to HH, the locks will be changed before I get home!

But you're right, I'm sure they'll all be gone (again).

Along these lines, is it safe to assume I can still expect an oil slick in my driveway from your truck this weekend?!!

Make your own skins. And rename your truck "Hannibal."

You make it sound like this happens frequently. I missed HH once in the last N years. That was the ONE time you have been to HH in that period! And I can't recall ever leaving HH before 10pm, mostly it's midnight or later.

Bring some seat covers. Even though I am not a buyer today, I may be if I can see a set.

Negative, and not just because it won't be there. Jason can confirm that there is no oil slick under my 90's parking spot - just rust.

I was thinking about this one, Dave! 1/8" thick 5052 isn't all that expensive and much more durable than the original stuff.

Hannibal the cannibal?

You got it. But not 1/8". Just use whatever the original is.

I'm so hurt that I'm in the "Not Likely" column. Hell ain't frozen over yet, boys...

So, is it Jays or Kilroys?
