Thanks guys, when I was at the shop on Saturday, Steve said everything should be going to powdercoat tomorrow. And in all reality, said I could pick it up on the 30th. But will probably be another 2 weeks on top that.

I say the extra 2 weeks only because I am going to have the front and back windows installed up there. Owe Steve a small amount plus whatever powdercoat runs me. I am not going to stress myself out over money just to get it home 2 weeks sooner! haha

Nothing too major, last few touches to the center console before off to powder coat.

Well Friday everything came back from powdercoat, and the front and rear windows got installed Friday morning as well. Everything should start being bolted back on Monday or Tuesday. Picking the truck up the 15th, maybe the 16th if I have/need to work the 15th.
