Still working on removing a squirrels nest out of my engine compartment. Last week my dad drove my car to work and left it outside with 100 lb of feed corn in the back. In one afternoon they built an entire nest with small sticks, leaves and insulation. They chewed a wire, a clip and my power steering cap. So this has been my entertainment while in my sling the last few days. Moral of story. Don't leave feed corn in your truck unattended.

That pic was a few hours after. I didn't get time to take pics just after it happened. I also severed the tendon which did not heal so now have a finger that's just along for the ride.

The rear end is pretty stiff but it's only noticeable on bad roads, otherwise it's fine. I gotta creep over speedbumps but if I'm lowering it I might as well get used to it.

Makes my problems seem minimal!!
Hope everything heals within reason for everyone!

Got the antenna mount studs for CB radio today.
Waiting on the custom antenna mounts an maglite holder now.
With an 8 week LOA just starting, I've got time to work on getting stuff installed!

Drove it to the range to try out my new plinker and sight my sons Green dot sight a little.


Then I got a little carried away and decided to blast the center out. Lol

- FYI, the pistol target was out 20 yards and the rifle was 50+ yards
