    Builds The Little Red Lobster

    Thanks. Not mission critical in truth, as it will be a sunny day summer truck and live without doors and the windows up most if not all of the time. But, for completeness sake, nice to have.

    Builds The Little Red Lobster

    I look forward to hearing the tales from this great rig, and making my own. I'll try to be worthy. I would rather have driven it north myself, but new job and time off aren't mixing currently. Unfortunately, by the time it makes it north, it'll get tucked away for NH snow season. No way this...

    To be 100% sure that @wngrog remains dizzy, and I look ridiculously indecisive, I've decided to keep the Lobster. Too hard to find a replacement when I realize my error. The little devil on the shoulder whispering "keep it, finish it" won.

    To be 100% sure that @wngrog remains dizzy, and I look ridiculously indecisive, I've decided to keep the Lobster. The little devil on the shoulder won. @whitey45 I think it was you who gave the final push back from the edge with that pic. @jmlockwood was doing a fair amount of behind the scenes...

    So, after a few days of mulling things over, which followed a few weeks before that when I really thought I was sure, I'm going to keep the truck. @whitey45 I think it was you who pushed me back from the edge. Everything I said about not needing so many trucks, freeing up space, etc is still...

    This board and the people on it are a huge part of what makes these things so great. I have plenty of reasons to rein in cruiser ownership in my life out here; a little enabling on the forum is a good thing. :cheers: Yes, those doors really make the package.

    Issue with airing down E rated tires?

    What was the date code on the tires? I just ordered some "new" snow tires for my 100 and when they arrived 2 were from 2012 and 1 from 2014. They went back, company claimed it was a "warehouse problem". I've run Coopers hundred of miles at 12 PSI in terrible conditions over multiple years and...

    In all seriousness, if anyone down here in the land of the really old trucks and the detail obsessions is interested, make me an offer. I care more about the truck going to a good home and the story continuing than I do anything else.

    Including this post, showing just how much I really want to sell this rig. Yet apparently is the operative word. Sitting here on a Monday morning. Debating whether I should drop the price on the Lobster. Move it along, "one and done", simplify. Sensible answer, no doubt. Then that little...

    I'd say there's always room for one more, but that's what I'm trying to avoid! More pics and chatter on the other ad thread.

    Indeed, Southwest Harbor and Manset (seawall) ME. A few pics from Northeast Harbor as well. I grew up there, one of my favorite places.
