Wow... This has got to be the longest build going...

Well hello all, Yes I am still alive.

I have nothing to add to the build. However I did touch the truck two weeks ago... Yup I moved it from a storage shed 65 miles from home to one 2 miles from home. Hopefully around March I will be buying a home and I will have the room to build again.

I have not visited the site for a while now, It's real hard to see all the builds and such on here knowing mine is collecting a butt load of dust in a storage shed.

Anyways just thought I'd let ya all know I'm still around.

I hope all of you and your Families have a very Merry Christmas or Holiday season.

Thanks Guys. Ya I'm trying to get things moving. I'm filing my divorce in January. We have pretty much decided that I will take our son and she will take our daughter since the two of them (15.5 girl and 13.5 boy) can't seem to make it one day without trying to kill each other (scary to think but literally sometimes, they have both gone after each other with a kitchen knife but yet they are perfect little angels when they are alone) Starting the ball rolling on a house. I'm back at the company I left when my brother wrecked his race car and was in a coma (must have been a real good bump on his head cause even though he has recovered from the accident both him and our Dad have decided that I am not worthy of talking to anymore for the last year) back to making real good money and got my same truck and pay rate back along with my weekends off.

So all and all things are looking real good for me right now.

Ok for those of you that know me you know how I feel about Chevy's. I've even teased some of you for having them (TC)

Well I Still have not figured out what the He!! I was thinking, and no I was NOT on anything.... But well I bought one.

I got a 2012 Silverado 2500HD with a Duramax. 13,200 miles just as you see it here... I was attracted to it by the lift and wheels and the rest of it just grew on me, and I have to admit... I LOVE IT!!!!!







And of course I had to put lights on it some how...











Mike

Right Lynn. The "Dark Side" is a great place to be... But hey I can handle this side for this truck. I have to admit no matter how nice it looks if it didn't have the Duramax there would be NO WAY I would own it.

The cold hard fact is you just can't beat the Duramax!!

Steamer... "Let me" they are cops, not God... They might give me a Fix-it ticket but they can't stop me from driving it... It's licensed in Wyoming which has no law about them. Utah can kiss certain parts.... the only way anyone can really make anything stick is if they write me for having "Unapproved Lighting" as defined by the Federal code. They do that and I'll just change the light to ones that say "DOT" on them.....

I know Steve.. Still scratching my head on that one myself and I got it on the 18th of January. However I love the truck. The good thing is it only has two bow tie's on it. On the Grill and the Steering wheel. I changed the one on the grill to Billet so it kinda disappears in the chrome grill, but that one on the wheel reminding me I own a Chevy.... Got to figure out what to do about that one.

very good looking truck. ya i hear you on the chevy part. i would wrap the center of the wheel so it wouldn't remind me what i am driving. just remember to watch the head gaskets on it. i've had 2 and both blew the head gaskets.

I'm seriously thinking of selling the Shak.. I'm not sure how much, or even if anyone would be interested. I have also given some thought to asking certain members if they would finish her for me.

Not sure what I'm going to do yet, thought maybe I could get some feed back.

It's been in a storage shed for almost two years now and I have, and will probably never have a place to work on it again.

Give me your thoughts and suggestions please.

Don't sell it!! You'll regret it. There are plenty of good builders who could finish it for you.

I agree! It's only been 2yrs. Heck, some peoples projects take 5 or 10 before completion.

There are great builders who could finish it but they aren't Dreamweaver!
Easy for me to say but you started this build of all builds. Ya gotta be the one to complete it Mike.
