    install Spinning wheels alternator pulley

    Well let's see.....
    I have to .... wait, no I don't.
    I do have to .... actually no, I don't.
    I should .... ehhhh probably not.
    I really better .... nah, forget it.
    and when I am done with all that I need to take out the map and figure out where I'm going.

    Then I think maybe I will wash it and the watch Jacob run some 12's

    I need to get off the fence and decide if I am going or not. I really dont have much to do before hand, but it would be nice to get the line locks installed. I wont be driving the car up there this year, but buying a trailer is not in the cards... so a uhaul transport will have to suffice. I'll probably decide in a month or so.
