I have been a little bored for the past couple of weeks. I have been in the process of trying to stretch the frame on my LTL. My welder that does the welding for me is working on another job in Bastrop and wont be able to get here for another week or so. I have done about all I can do getting everything prepped for him so when he does get here it should not take him long to get the job done. As soon as he gets his part done I will take my measurements and figure my driveshaft angles and start reconnecting all my air lines and wiring back up. I will then take the truck to Houston and have the sleeper installed. We are going for 250 inches with air ride, so it should be pretty good riding .

Michelle, My brother has sold a jillion Western Stars with this suspension at 255 wheel base and they rode like a dream. The Aeromax that minecame from was 245 wheel base and it also rode like a fine car. So you should be just swell. As you know my wife drives a Marquis and that is my base line for ride in any thing I build and drive.  Wayne

Gee, Michelle,,, can't you find some room in your shop for a small project to fill your time, like another Falcon or som'thin'?

I''m an expert now, I didn''t have anything left over this time.

I am able to find things to do if it was not so cold. It never got out of the 40's here today. As long as it is about 55 or above I am OK. I have decided to go ahead and rerout my air lines and electrical. They are now mounted on the back of the cab, and when I take the truck to Houston to get the sleeper installed it will save me money if they do not have to take the time to do it. As the weather permits I am cleaning parts so it will go back together quickly.

I am bored again, my LTL is in Houston getting the sleeper installed. I know there are other projects in the shop to work on but they all take money for parts. I am keeping pretty busy though. i washed my White Mustang today and detailed it. It looks almost new again.

I was going to invite Michelle up to my place, but if she don't have money for her parts, she probably doesn't want to come up here and buy parts for me. LOL

What can I say, you guys are so sweet. You are so eager to help me in my time of need. I did talk to the truck shop today and they said that they were putting the sleeper on as I spoke, I am starting to get really excited. I am driving to Houston to see it Saturday, I may even post a picture when I get back.
