I will eventually, but will be doing it myself with the help from Totally Polished. Ifcustom.com is a good shop, they have a waiting list. Devious Customs in Ontario is good. I know there are some more, but can't think of them right now.

Thanks for the info, I will check them out. It seems like all the good shops around here have a 2-3 month waiting list, thats a LONG time, plus another month that it will in there. I may just decide to put it off for now and buy some badass 20's that tuck a little better than my 18's do. :?

Try CI Customs over in La Mesa. He's over on University Ave. He might be there, he's been helping out at another shop, but give him a call. The number is 619-469-1086. He does quality work and he ain't expensive. He did some work for Sunset SD.

Are you stationed at 32nd st. or are you at camp pendelten? I was at 23nd st for awhile and I know how hard it is to work on your ride at the base. and yes I know built not bought, thanks for the reminder twisted.

well, i have a good friend stationed at penalten right now, he's been there for 2 1/2 years now, and he has all the time in the world to build things. He even got a second job because he was bored. Not to mention all the guys that leave, and sell their every day vehicles for cheap because they don't want to pay for storage or shipping. Why not pickup a beater, so you can werk on your dak on your own?

I work anywhere between 9 and 11 hours a day 5 to 6 days a week and that doesn't leave time for much. I do have a project s-10 at home just waiting to be cut up, though. Also i've been buying tools lately such as compressor, welder, orbital sander, & air tools. :)
