Work smarter not harder. :icon_idea:

Step 1.

Moisten dirt to sticky mud.

Step 2.

Drive g unit through it repeatedly until well coated.

Step 4.

Park g unit where soil is desired.

Step 5.

Wash g unit.

Repeat as needed.
You might be onto something... I even have a new pressure washer.

If I am not mistaken... Bronco Graveyard sells the same Coverlay door panels that I had fit and finish issues with. Buyer beware.

Totally would come help you shovel if I was a little closer.

All good... I will get through the pile of dirt.

They are coverlay panels... I'm not really looking for perfection... not building a show truck. Have you seen the paint job...

What's the worst that could happen?
That is such a good looking truck. Great stance. Jealous.

Glad you're finally starting to feel a bit better.👍

I honestly would have bet a paycheck that was millings.. if you'd like I'll send you a shipping label you can send that dirt to me, I'll shovel after that! No questions asked! That's some black damn dirt.

Gump you'll probably have that one up and running around tip top long before I work my problems out. Good buy, good looking truck, and you'll be mobile before you know it!!

I'm jealous you live in Michigan and have a barn. So... we are closer to even. I feel lucky to have got that little truck.

Thank you... just slow and steady.

Should have just moved to Florida instead of shipping it up, could have just raked the sand in the yard flat... 🤣

That was some good screened top soil. Some will find its way to the garden after filling the torn up yard.

In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.

I could use 40-50 tons of that stuff for my yard. I've got nothing but red clay.

So... when I ordered parts yesterday I forgot to get the weather shield for behind the door panel.

Who sells a decent replacement?
