    To start off I had to prepare the truck for the PC. First I did minor mechanical maintenance to ensure it will run another 145k miles.

    That done I started on some cosmetic changes I wanted. I changed the sliding back window to a single piece of glass. Then I removed the 60/40 bench and added buckets from a newer Tahoe. (Ignore the torn upholstery, I plan to recover them.) I stripped down the dash too. Finally, I added a Python alarm and shaved the door handles.

    My project is progressing slowly but surely. I am waiting for some things to modify my dash for my Pixel Qi LCD. In the meantime I sent the truck to have the bumper fixed from the results of an inattentive driver. It should look like the black truck's roll pan by Wednesday.

    Got my Dynatron in recently. Taking a course in Turbocad6's school for custom bezels. Trying to make my Pixel Qi LCD fit in my dash. Made just preliminary progress today. Will have more later.

    Yeah it is a little sparse now; but it will get better, trust me. This worklog will progress albeit slowly because I am focused on a set goal I want for my system.
