Don't have any perfectly straight ones.
I think the first thing 1993 NAS 110 owners did back in 1993-1994 was walk around on the roof to put lots of little dents in the roof.
I've tried to sell roofs, tried to ebay roofs.... no one want to pay to ship them, I can't box them for shipping and no one wants to drive up to get them... so don't whine.
So now they get used as sleds.
We now have a plan for our next snowy day around the industrial park roads!!

I thought folks would freak about the 110 tub and the 110 roof basket in the back of the truck more than the roof panel.

Sounds like its going to be either one of your best ideas yet, or by far the worst!

I didn't notice what the stuff in the bed was. What was the deal with the rack? That should have been worth selling I would think...

We'll see how many mechanics go to the hospital on their lunch break sled ride.

I'll be the one driving the truck!!

I see ECR's project completion time getting much slower after half the mechanics are in the ER The decription of this should start with "and then he said hey hold my beer"

I saw the tub in the back, but refrained from commenting. But I swear one day I'm coming up there so save me a rolling chassis, rear tub, and roof please, and I'll tow the lot home.

I think reality shows have run their course. I hope they die off soon.

A show would not work here, because we all get along.
American Chopper was a show because of the father and son fighting all the time.
The Hot Rod show with Boyd was a show because he put stupid fast deadlines on his crew.
I doubt anyone would want to watch us do the same thing (build Defenders) all day.
Maybe last year as we tried to get work done and build the new shop at the same time, but now things aren't that interesting.

I love the show called "chasing classic cars" with Wayne Carrini on one of the HD networks. I just wish they would shoot some new episodes. I've seen every episode twice I think.

Yeah, I hate reality shows too, but I enjoyed those two (especially American Chopper) and Dirty Jobs because they were about things that interested me and Mike Rowe is hilarious!

I know what you mean, but you know us D90/110 guys would watch. I can't tell you how many times I have read and looked at the pics on ECR's website for ideas etc. Plus, whenever it gets dull you can do what Jr. & Sr. do and smash something, or tow your coworkers around on a roof!

Really not that much fun.... Mike was a nazi in his former life,.... so life in the shop is ...."STRICT".....

A reality show would suck.... the only thing that would get smashed or thrown would be the stupid camera man....

I use the full hardtop from my old series III as a wood shed at the cottage. I wish my D90 roof kept me as dry as the wood stays!
