Well, the only person putting fuel in my truck will be me. So I'm not worried. But like I said yellow is the correct color not really a poseur thing. Just more work then I'm inclined to do. I think I could have fixed that guy's jeep for less than 2 bills too. Shouldn't even be that far from civilization if you can't fix a simple problem like misfueling. Especially if it was only 5 gallons worth.

Most of my sceptor mfc's just have a yellow strap holding the cap. Otherwise the can is OD. Have two yellow cans but they are mighty bright.

I have seen 2 occasions at a fuel dock when the first person pumped over thirty gallons into the rod holder before they realized what was happening. The second time was similar, but in this case it was gas being pumped into diesel tanks. One side was full and the other was just started when the owner came back to the boat from somewhere or other to find that his boat was getting the wrong kind of fuel. We were a boat back sitting in our sailboat's cockpit and heard the commotion. I seem to remember it was nearly 100 gallons of gas in the diesel tank.

Eastern Shore ? No life guards watching the gene pool over on that side.

Got the normal NAS flares installed (to make evilfij happy) and finished the gauge install in the Mud pod. I didn't plan the layout very well as the tach was an afterthought - I had planned on more Carling switches.

So from left to right is the Boost, ARB switches, EGT, and then Tach.

You can say that again. Everybody from Harford County clogs the place up on the weekends. Anyway the incidents occurred at Spa Creek and Solomon's, respectively. It was back in the 80's.

Ever see this on Solomon's? I would love to know some history on my truck.

I like the Boulder signs on the garage! Truck is looking great too. These boys just don't understand a little black and gold, or in your case yellow

Fabricated some custom front cross bars to match the stock NAS ones. I thought about putting the slight bend in them like the rear ones, but that would have been dumb and made them harder to install. Also used grade 8 bolts (not by choice) and some rubber washers behind metal washers to keep water out of the cage. I've thought about this design for a long time and this seemed to be the most cost-effective and easy way to install them. The other option was some clamps, but that would add about $100 to the cost. These are 1" tube with whizz nuts welded in the ends.



Also got the flooring installed. Up next is the installation of the some basket rails I fabricated that clamp on to the NAS SD cage!
