Default Re: Bitzy's "Build"

IIRC, Glenn's engine rebuild thread was full of "How do I do this" and "I did this, but was I supposed to do that?"

No way in hell would I let him touch my truck.

ok well then it would be best to replace it IF you plan to keep it. If you plan on selling it fuck it. New owners can get it fixed.
$2200 is alot to spend when the truck might only be worth $5k at most

It books at $4500 in excellent condition. I'd put it in around fair condition and would expect maybe 4k for it. Ill mark it up around 5k because who know, some teenage might see a lightbar and freak out and impulse buy.

But remember I'm only paying for half the repairs and I still gotta be able to drive it daily until its sold. It will also be hard for someone to test drive it when they can't see out the windows with no defrost.
