Thanks ! I couldn't make my outdoor video post to utube for some reason,, it just gives me black screen! I posted a video on the Facebook page
Stock clodbusters

Here is 12 mph,, it showed 13 for just a second,,
Image

My first outdoor film with a hot battery was out of focus real bad but I did get some screen shots that turned out very cool
Image

I'll set up for some nice pictures before I turn it back over to the owner maybe a few more action shots as well , then it's going back where it came from! It's been a fun rebuild!

Very nice! I love seeing old school clods and this is making me miss having one too....

Oh, I've been fixing your video links. If you hit the edit button on you post, you will see I took some of the script you've been posting out of there. Compare that to what you've been copy+pasting, and you'll see the difference.

Phillip , the owner of this truck bashed the crap out of it! had a lot of fun, then brought it back and said fix it again!! works for me!
He broke the body into and the bed pins pulled through on one side,, so new body, new bumpers, new paint, new stickers!
and now it's called, "The Demon"

If he breaks it again,, it's getting lexan!

Me too!

I'm thinking about cuting the old body down the middle and putting the two halves on placks, one for me and one for him!
