    dazednconfused's slow mighty build

    Okay i think its time to show a lil history on the truck now. i bought the truck for $1200 (paid too much) off a guy that had it listed on graigslist after the insurance company totaled out my t/bird s/c. after a guy in a newer charger t/boned me.

    the insurance company gave me $3000 for the car. funny thing is i paid $1000 for the car. the thing that made me mad the most was all that happened to the charger was a scuff on the bumper and the turn signal popped out(which he just walks around and pops back in place like nothing happened.

    that just gave me the kick to chrome the front out sooner than planned. got a 95 chrome grill and the cheap clear markers from fleabay. a slightly beat up bumper off a 4x4 mm from the local pic-n-pull. plus a couple other chrome accents from the parts store

    then i had gotten a hold of a member on here or maxd50scene(cant remember) and got a grill emblem.

    then one night had a bad storm and a tree limb fell into the bed destroying the cover.(no pics)
    kinda put things on hold for awhile due to truck acting up. plus i backed into my buddies car cause i didnt realize he had parked behind me and i was in a hurry to pick a friend up from work. there went the almost flawless factory rollpan.

    then one day my passenger front turn signal stopped working. the inner guts had rusted. replaced bulb still wouldnt work. so i grabbed some semi trailer l.e.d. markers and got to work on converting them.

    then one night i was helping haul some wood for a buddy. i was driving through his yard and went to drive over what looked like a small flimsy tree sapling that you could drive over without hurting anything. i was wrong. there was 1.5in steel rod hiding in it. destroyed the valance and got stuck on the core support. luckily the valance was the only thing that got damaged. now it looks like it has green fangs for the halloween season. lol.

    I've noticed that. i haven't found another mm or d50 running them. but as a tip to everyone that may not know, there is no modification needed for these rims to fit our trucks unlike others that need the centers bored out.

    Definitely get the head checked for cracks. You dont wanna go through all the work of gasket replacement without it
