Got the decals on today, Tuesday the muffler gets plumbed and dialed in. Then the new chokers and bull line. My father suffered a heart attack last Sunday.  He goes home today with hospice care. I have to be done this week. 
I love my dad.

I loved my 666C awesome skidder. Nothing like a screaming Jimmy, your dad will hear it before he sees it. Such a cool project.

Got the muffler done, I'm on the home stretch. These guys did a awesome job, I knew they would when I pulled into the shop next to the 67 el camino.

Looking forward to it.
I worked in the woods with my Father for 3 years,before he passed away. A lot of memories of doing that.
