Decided to get the black truck out and clean it up a bit, had a layer of dust from the old shop. First time it’s been washed since I parked it four years ago. The blue truck still needs a bath. Read more
Not much in the way of updates, between work, family and the other site, the truck has taken a back seat. But, I will be bringing it home very soon where I will have much more time to work on it. I need to finish installing the Grid, new battery cables and switches. Then start on the new engine build. If you want to follow the build, or get updates, from here on out, this site will be the only place to find them. I’ve decided to no longer post any updates on any of the Dakota sites primarily due to thread crapping and trolling from people who hate the fact there is a Chevrolet engine under the hood.

It will in simple terms, create a searchable, sort-able database of automotive casting numbers, part numbers and eventually RPO and build codes. It is still currently in private beta stages, but I hope to have the site open to the public in a few months.

Esser Automotive will be relocating starting in the middle of November. This move will give me more space, a much better location and is closer to my home.

So overall I feel this move will be a big positive and will only help the shop grow.
