    So tonight I had this great idea I was going to change from the cheapy Mufflers to the Flowmasters and I was going to make a right side tail pipe. I chopped up a bunch of Bends and started fitting it together and realized I needed some sleeves so I ran over to the auto parts store and as I was picking out sleeves and adding up the price it was getting out of hand another customer in line asked me if the truck was a diesel I replied no then I realized 6-2 diesel K 30s had dual exhaust. So when I got up to the counter I said just for ha-ha's look up an 86 k30 with a 6-2 diesel and see if you have a listing for the tailpipes he had the left one in stock and I will have the right one Friday for a work truck it's not worth making them. One was $23 and the other was $22 I may need to modify the mid pipes a little bit for for the Mufflers I have and the tailpipes I ordered but I still think it's going to be easier than making new tailpipes

    The exhaust parts game Friday they're on the truck the tack is wired and then I got into gas gauge wiring...oh boy my eyes are so bad these days I can't read a schematic on my phone and when i blow them up there to blurry. Oh well nothing else will probably get done I've got tornado warnings in effect till 1 a.m. And rain all day tomorrow I guess this weekend is over maybe I'll run to a bookstore tomorrow in the rain and see if they have a schematic.

    I'm very happy with the exaust changes it's so much nicer to drive now. I just wish I didn't run out of Mig wire when I was doing it I've got a few flutters but that's ok I can all ways go back over it tonight I'm going to consentrate on cleaning out the cab.

    That's undrivable here unless if you just stay off of any highways.

    It's fairly undrivable here to arrange speed on the parkway is between 75 and 95 mph hell people do about 60 on average past my house. It's going to stay that way for now but in the future something may need to change. At those rpm's I hope it's not the motor lol

    When you have a 40 year old truck, loaded with big giant heavy crap, eben the stupid people generally stay out of your way.

    At 5:30 today this load drove through most of the major Atlanta highways going between 50 and 55mph top speed.

    You'd think you'd get run over, but even the 16 wheelers give a wide berth
