Anybody look at the forecast? Looks like it's gonna warm up a bit around 12 or so....

Nice! We've got a '53 6400 dump truck at my dad's waiting on a restoration. It was in daily use until about 15 years ago. Those are some of the best looking trucks of all time IMHO.

I so wanted to try the restoration myself. But I have no shop space or any real body work experience. :(
Maybe Pat will take me for a ride in it when he is done!

I was just discussing with the wife that one day I will either have enough time to restore ours, or enough money to pay somebody else, but chances are I won't have both.

I knew I didn't have the money to pay Pat to do it for me, so I bought a Tiger instead and told Pat about the truck...

Almost. I'm a Brooke, with an "e." My grandfather was a Brooks, with an "s."

If it was about 15 minutes closer to Jackson I'd build a house out there in a few years. Such a beautiful place. I just can't quite talk myself into battling that traffic every day to get into town...

So I got a 15T, lower gearing, counter sprocket on the way for the Tiger.

Anyone got a 36MM impact socket? Guess I need to get one...
