Im also going to paint the engine bay, and mabe even put in some new carpet, I havent decided on the carpet yet. Oh ya, msd 6al, a new driveshaft, new shue and rideplate are going in also. If I have money left, maby even a little blue bottle??? LOL I have to keep Joe in line!!! LOL

    Sent my logs, elbow and scoop to AmatoRacing for polishing. Bought a new polished intake, was just about to buy the cam/rollers and timing chain kit and a bottle, but the wife had a better ET on the spend button. Darn kids and bills... always need something. Just kidding. I'll have to sneak alittle less , more often from now on. I do have the new disc brake axle to add to my trailer. I plan on lowering the bunks and moving exsisting axle back and adding the new axle with a SS fenders. 16ft boat will look good on the trailer.

    You might as well make it look good on the trailer Mark, thats where it sits most of the time any way. LOL Get rid of the wife like I did, you'll find out that you can spend money whare you need to instead of on crap like food and bills she racks up. LOL

    I think I'll be using it a bunch more this year. Houseboat won't be going into the water this year. Can't get rid of the wifey, we've got a 26 year track record and besides, she wants me to build the Dimarco for the extra room in it My wifes pretty good, she encourages some of the good stuff in my life, the Harley she wrote the check for, Porche a few years ago etc. I may never have had the oportunity without her. Wifey's aren't all bad, just gotta get the right one. And yeah, If its going to be a trailer queen, damn straight, it's gonna look good doin it
