Im 100% CDO (OCD is in the wrong order) and anal retentive. And I really like this truck. Im pretty sure where I work hired me for my OCD tendencies. Seems that in order to work there you need some level of it.

I dont want to have to work on it more than I have to so I might as well do it right. Might as well make it how I want it if I have to do so.

The brackets. They still need some oven curing. I only blasted off the origonal paint and dirt before paining. No special treatment.

Ah. Gotcha. You really do have to be kind of anal retentive to fix cars successfully. I'm in the ADD crowd myself. Funny enough the place where I work is pretty chaotic at times and there's a lot of running around to do. You kind of have to be bit ADD to work there or else you'd go nuts. It's a nice truck though, almost one of a kind. I don't think I've seen one in a similar configuration around where I live. Japan or Tennessee production?

Its Japan built. I can't recall the plant off the top of my head. No 2 tone trucks were made in Smyrna. The new Titan is the first 2 tone Nissan truck since 1986.

Good info man. By the way those new Titans look like a ford with Down syndrome

The new Titan long bed reg cab looks OK, the rest not so much.

Rusty motor is gone.

Junk yard Warn hubs are installed. They are heavier than the MM hubs in weight.

ETA on "new" VG33e is Wednesday - Thursday.

Ordered a timing kit finally. $24 bucks for a Gates kit off RockAuto because it was the last one. Good stuff! ETA Dec 19 or earlier. Getting pretty excited for this build!
