Hey, I'll be there bright and early. Might bring my brother or cousin with, if that's ok, but most likely I'll just be rolling solo.

I'd like to take a look at that ABS light I have lit up (praying its not a front wheel sensor... $$) as well as doing an oil change. Might even install a set of backup lights I've had lying around but can't find the time to put on. Countless other little mods and fixes if time / interest permits.

I'm really just going to meet some of the guys and hang out as there isn't any urgency with my truck. I'm more than willing to lend anyone a hand as well!

Hey Shaolin, I'd still be willing to drop by and lend a hand if your feelin like it. West Covina isn't too far from Covina so its not a big deal for me. I was just gonna play with the truck any way till the BBQing started later in the afternoon so its no problem for me.

LMK!

BTW Recent mods - Finished the blue LED dash mod yesterday evening, MAN what a pain to get those needles back on in the right place but it was all worth it, LOOKS AMAZING:yay::yay::yay:, even my little lady was surprised! I caught a lifted V10 staring at them at a red light the other night. How do I know? He was sitting and staring at them for about 15 seconds AFTER the light turned green!!:peace:

LMAO!

I'll have pictures up tonight if I can get that SD converter back from my sis... Otherwise no means of transferring pics off my phone...

Never lend anything to family unless you don't plan on needing it any time soon...

The truck will be there at the wrenching day so if I don't manage to get pictures up you're always welcome to stop by and take a look :)

I'll be there around 9 myself. Here's a few pics of the dash redon with blue and the truck in general since I never got to post those hah. Please excuse the crappy cell phone camera and I think my steering wheel was in the way of some of the dash shots, didn't want to start the truck just to turn it heh.
