    Full rebuild short of machine work, mean green motherfucker! Lime green block, hand-polished valve cover, and stickers! Too broke for real mods right now. Stonewall is my baby, but he's also a work truck.
    Doing great- was able to shave my head last night with no problem from the gash. It seems to be doing really well now- and now that I can actually see it without hair in the way (with a camera, of course) it doesn't look bad at all!
    Here's the day before I shaved-

    And after I shaved- It's surprising how small it really is now that I can see it without all of the hair in the way. :D

    And here's a picture of my enemy, taken yesterday with my cell phone after we FINALLY unloaded it from the trailer.

    Think that's the third one- I got a good little on the front years ago, and one on the top that stayed- I've been pretty good about not acquiring head wounds until this. At least I don't rack them up like I do broken legs and fingers and stuff! xD I have discovered that I have a new little dent in my forehead now, up close to my hairline above the inside corner of my right eye. Sounds about right, too- that's where my head hit the ground when the engine pinned me. Didn't get me flat on my face thankfully, or I'd have probably broken my nose too. :D

    Doing great- and the scab crap on my head came off today to reveal a shiny red scar. For some reason, that freaks people out more than it did when it was scabbed up. :confused:

    Yeah, I think I've learned never to push something that heavy/unstable from behind. And also, don't trust tie-downs! Trying to look at it lightly, cos if I don't it kinda scares me to think how different things could have ended. After this, there ain't a lick of doubt in my mind that someone was watchin over me.
