Congrats! She looks great. I guess it's typical for trucking companies to secure the trucks down by the tires like that?

Thanks!

I actually asked the twin Russian brothers about their lashing system. Said they always strap bigger trucks by the tires. Frankly it was fine by me rather than wrapping straps around brake lines and such. The trucking company was "F1 Transport" and Cascade was the broker. Again, Very happy with both parties.

One thing I did decide to do was treat it to seat covers -- prototyping a set with MOLLE webbing across the back for a potential short run of them!

Nice stuff all over it. What road do you live on in Arlington, again?

No one would willingly choose to live in Annandale. Especially near Jefftech.

Ha - it was that way about 30 years ago, when I lived off Hummer Road. Yes, Hummer Road in Annandale.

Since the seat belt install met with catastrophic failure yesterday (picture 1) I broke out the orbital buffer today to see how bad the paint was. Turns out: pretty damn good!
