Turned the shop into a gunsmith shop today. Put a fluted bull barrel on a Ruger 10-22. Added an Archangel rifle stock to it. Then a bi-pod. Green laser. Vertcle fore grip. Then a 4x3 tactical green recticle sight. It'* a mean looking mamma-jamma.

Put new motor mounts on my truck today. The old ones had no rubber on the bottom of them. I had a hard time lining up one mount and the other was easy.

Getting the tank in place is easy. Just raise it up and start connecting things, fuel lines, wires, filler tube, then lift the rest of the way, flip the straps over and bolt it up. don't forget to put padding between the tank and the frame, or you will be changing the tank again real soon.

yeah i know i've just been procrastonating...but i can't anymore everything is hooked up now lol wiring and fuel lines...all thats left is filler tube and putting the straps on..my truck still has all its factory padding surprisingly..kind of makess it a lil easier because there is a cross brace that extends out like 6 inches that the tank sits on and one strap bolts to..im slowly gettin around to go do it

nice! I wanna see pics.

Those are fun plinking guns. Right ammo they're a decent 'yote killer too. Want to do some modding to the wife'*, but the Mossberg will probably come first.
