Just in time for vday... back from the dead ready for the rocks

Been almost two years since I flipped it. Had to transplant a new roof, and dropped in a 350 sbc while I was at it. Finally finished chasing down electrical gremlins, bringing the truck up ct, then nora at end of month.

.. and of course, after I got to ct, driver door wont open.. sheesh..

yup.. I learned my lesson. first thing I did after fixing the roof was putting in a roll cage. Next time it happens... likely moving to a different vehicle. :-)
