    So having to do some repair work to my front bumper/valance, damaged it hitting a speed bump I didn't see.
    My Mini Truck friend Ricky & his brother Rob from Virginia are out working & came over on Monday so leaned a hand pulling in off & straightening the brackets. Which I decided to strengthen up with fish plates.
    So made a pattern & had my friend & neighbor cut out with his plasma.
    Today will finish that up & do the rest of repair & repaint work.
    At the same time now the truck won't start, after a little trouble shooting found that no spark,& it seems that the FireBall ignition took a dump!!
