Kinda sounds like he thought he was replying to John about the dash knobs he just made.

Yeah, I think he's chiding me about them, but something got lost in his engrish.  I bought two sets, put my money where my mouth was, even though they weren't exactly what I'd hoped for.

Well I didn't buy 3 sets unless I'm getting a bonus. I bought 2 sets so maybe I can modify 3 of them for hazard, choke, and cigarette lighter. At least I'm good for it.

Good point.

hopefully datrod makes those other three as well (red hazard). I want them all the same so unless he makes the other three these will probably sit on the shelf.

Well, been off work and out of town for a week due to the fire in SB. Sooooo... parcel tray blasted, powder primed and powder coated, stainless semitubular rivets installed. Just need to get some replacement screws/washers/sheetmetal nuts in stainless.

Just build your truck. Stop buying shit for it. Don’t do what I did I have so much money and shit on it, I don’t want to strip to paint.

The damage to this one is much more manageable, but still annoying. If I wanted bodywork I'd just do it on the original :D

I'm pretty much done buying crap for it, but still no time/space. I drove my 521 over 3 hours today...two 90 mile trips + around townage. I can't hear anymore
