Re: My Chevy 1500 W/T 94 V6

i had a issue with stop lights not engaging, and i lubed the piston going through firewall
waa la the brake lamps work flawless now.

these year of trucks its a known design issue. other thing to check is stop lamp switch, and of course your fuse.

so anyone else having brake lamp issue try this fix.

Glad you are still getting to do things on the truck. Thanks for the brake tip. I'll probably forget it before I need it though

Re: My Chevy 1500 W/T 94 V6

got tool box back on polished , tip for anyone else , used rubber padding on outside edges on bed and lined inside with padding to reduce vibration noise.

next up is polishing the alloy rims.

Re: My Chevy 1500 W/T 94 V6

got the decals all on and edge sealed , same as factory with the addition of 4.3L vortec decal on tailgate compliments it nice.

side doors have 1500 decals and chevy symbol.

looks fantastic.

highly recommend applying decals with the wet method, soapy water , this allows you to move the decals around on painted surface , takes a few hours to dry, wipe clean gently
then you can apply seal it pen edge sealer to decals, this extends the life of your decals.
