    thanks for the welcome ..about the back well actually it got worst when I was sent to get physical therapy for lower back pain, this was on a monday then tuesday I could not move my left leg, due to sciatic nerve pain, way too much pain and I am not one to complain much, but I would not wish that kind of pain on my worst enemy.... but I reckon my job contributed to the disc rupturing.... my last few jobs involved removing transmissions...:D rear mains...one engine swap...timing belts water pumps. etc etc...maybe someone upstairs was telling me to look for another line of work??:rolleyes:

    thanks and yes I agree gotta be optimistic..... ..
    btw I miss orlando ..I used to live there a few years back off of S. Conway Rd and Gatlin?? this was back in '86.. also my parents purchased a beautiful house off of Econlockhatchee Trail (I had to look up the right spelling we just called it Eco Trail)..were there for 2 years and sold it, decided to move back to Atlanta...and it was located on a natural preserve so there were too many restrictions....oh well.... at least they are close now...well happy new year!!

    None currently, but I would like a better sounding exhaust and perhaps a cold air pack and some color coded step bars
    Hope your backs better, same here, worked 30yrs in the auto body trade, blew out a disc and things haven't been right yet but things are improving. Heal up.

    thanks that is good to know. I will defenately let you know..I have some property in Puerto Rico however its just sitting there, only used when myself or any of the family here travels overthere, I would like to rent it out when we are not around, but it's such a hassle. I would like also obtain property in Fla. not sure exactly where.... in case my parents don't want to retire in PR :D
