If I swing by, it'll be to toss that minty fresh shell on a trailer and take it home with me.

Atleast someone would get it done.

Now if Ben would just get me the final bill and ship my t6 there’s a chance the truck could be at Davis with the t6 in it. Small chance but a chance

That color looks so good all fresh and shiny like that. You still have a lot of work to do, but assemble after paint is the best part. It's all down hill from here IMO

Pretty much same as last update. I've mainly been working on the truck lately (disc brake conversion to all 4 corners, just finished rebuilding the front suspension... motor is about half built).

With having to keep my employee's at home but still paying them, it's unlikely much will happen this year on the 240. I'm grateful that I was able to pay off painting it and some other big expenses before this happened though.

That being said, once I finish up the truck (few more days and it's drivable again) then I may start sorting thru some of the "paint and install" parts. It's tough right now since I'm doing the work of 5 other employee's by myself, plus trying to keep money coming in AND deal with the kids "distance learning" from home.

Times is tough man. Huge props for taking care of your employees though, not a lot of people can/will.
You'll come out the other side of this though, and maybe someday this wagon will get done, but you're doing good

Doing my best! I've got a great crew and I don't want to lose them. They deserve every ounce I can give them.

Yep AND theresa's a teacher so she's having to distance teach while trying to help max distance learn. It's rough

I did mess around a bit yesterday with it though

No not really unfortunately. Made a little progress on the motor for the truck and bought a in ground scissor lift for the house. Just haven't had a chance for the concrete guys to come out and cut the slab.

Honestly, the last few months have felt like the little dutch boy with my finger in the dam trying to keep things going at work, family safe etc. It's been crazy.
