December 6th, 2006

I had no idea how many pages I would need after I got this redesign started. There are several pages waiting for me to start and I will get to them in good time. I need to figure out the button graphics. I wish I had a couple ounces of graphics talent. I may sick RovErica on the task. She is very artistically inclined.

Restoring the Rangie. I will start ordering parts as soon as Christmas is done. I’m going to start with the brakes so I can get her back on the road. The painting will need to be done in North Oklahoma City at my buddy’s paint booth. I’ve noticed a nasty contrast between the front doors and the back half. The front is shiney and the back is badly oxidized. I’m not sure if I’ll paint the whole truck at this point or just the rusty bits.

I’m trying to decide which Rover to at the modifications to. The 93 Rangie is the obvious choice. But as it will be RovErica’s daily driver I can’t very well take it for the weekend. But as the Disco is MY daily driver I don’t want to add too many heavy mods. I need to build a bumper for the Disco after the wreck. But I’m sure with a little creativity I could do that in the shop. I saw how
Disco Mike set his up. He was kind enough to forward me some pics of his bumper build. Layed out like he did it I think I could do that for sure. I’ll just need to wander down to the steel yard and pick up some metal.

I “pimped” the my MySpace page this week. I find the hidden tricks difficult to understand. But copying off some of the other pages I’m able to find stuff I like. And using the copy and paste feature I can customize it to fit my needs. Check it out at
I think it looks good. I wonder how much longer this MySpace craze will last?
