    That truck looks great! I've asked several times but I haven't got a straight answer as where to buy the Jamie chassis?

    Well I still have not managed to get the engine installed due to house remodeling, health issues, and tons of stuff going on in life. I did however manage to take Pinky Pie from My Little Pony for a ride (my daughter loved it!) as well as do a zip tie mod thanks to @Rich
    who suggested it.

    Pinkie Pie.......too funny!

    Only us dad's with little girls understand that.

    I've got the whole My Little Pony clan that I have to give rides to periodically.

    Lol! I think I may be doing just that. She thought it was hilarious and kept wanting more. Being a dad is the best. I'm afraid I may be turning into a Brony ;)

    Well, I was able to get a mount made and the engine mounted today. A little sheet with some bends and holes drilled. I currently have the engine on a bit of an angle, does it look lame or should I shift it so it is horizontal? I have some blue wire that will be added soon and I also need to decide on what to do for headers...any suggestions?

    It looks great the way you have it mounted.

    Thanks for the comments guys, I will be getting some decal headlights, not sure when but hopefully soon. It looks weird lol!

    I got it wired up and exhaust is in the works. Hopefully it will be installed tonight! Being a teacher and having summer break is awesome! I feel like in just the past few days I've been liberated and able to do so much.

    I think my daughter shifted the engine a bit when it was drying on it's mount. It is shoe goo and I'm not dying to pry it off but I somewhat want to with my OCD. Thoughts? IS it that bad? Will I just **** it up?s

    it isn't that bad...

    but if it were me, i'd redo it...the rest of the detail in the truck looks great, and it not being straight would irk me to redo it...

    I shifted the motor mount so it is more horizontal.
