Good news / Bad news - the good news is, I'm getting the truck painted soon. The bad news (and unwanted motivation behind this) is that I was in my first traffic accident, of course with the blue truck. I got caught with nowhere to go and changed lanes into an occurring accident - no, the tow truck wasn't really moving into the intersection - he was SKIDDING INTO THE CAR IN FRONT OF HIM. Shit. I was only doing 40 in a 45, but there were cars lined up on both sides of the lane I had just changed into and by the time I realized the tow truck (without lights) wasn't moving, I only had about 3 car lengths to stop. I bumped the Taurus that was on the tow truck at about 5 to 10 MPH. The truck has minor damage to it, the worst part is that the grille was damaged and it's the only part that's not being reproduced yet. I'm lined up with all the replacement parts, including a good used grille and should be starting to get it back together next week. There's a new gallery in the photo album with pictures of the damage and my progress in repairing it.
