Hello, for those who don’t know the back story, please read:


Here I will try to avoid asking technical questions and just share some of the progress. Firstly, here is the original truck as it was when I drove it everyday.

Should be nice when it's done. You have more patience than I do--I just want it done so I can drive it.

Let em hatch out and fly the coop. I didn't move my truck for quite some time because a Jenny wren had little ones in the bed stake pocket. lol

I later made her a house in my carport next to the stake pocket she chose, and relocated her nest in to it. She came back the following year and nested in the house. This year too.
