I guess the motor is supposed to go next to the seat? Weird.

Motors just go where they go I guess.

You donít know him the way I do Bill, but anyone who challenges a Highway patrol cop to a race would be up for a race or two.

The addition could be fun, I think, if nothing else, then at least a silly grin and some safe fun, till the beers get held.

Re: GRIZZís English 2001 S10 Extra Cab 4.3 V6 Truck

Osteopath beat me up really well today with her gentle touch.

Took me 4 hrs + to recover from the pain and walk upright again.

Crazy.

But the good news is that the sunset was lovely.



Currently truck just needs to wait.

Glad you recovered. Hope they get you squared away soon.

I donít mind people knowing stuff like this, as it prevents guessing and assuming.

Part of my referral letter looks like this..... summarised it means a mechanical failure.



And a selfie taken about 2 hrs after the osteopath had her gentle hands on me.

Amazing how such a gentle touch can cripple one, think of a Ninja.

It certainly makes getting on with stuff less easy and certainly quite unpleasant with the pain, and how you need to plan literally every step you take.

Re: GRIZZís English 2001 S10 Extra Cab 4.3 V6 Truck

Always something.

Noticed at the weekend that the tailgate retaining cables were not quite as they should be.

The drivers side was held captive by a Nyloc nut, and the passenger side had its original equipment fitted, so could release the slotted cable end.



As fitted.



Whats missing.



Conversely, the drivers side unit had been replaced by this part.

Not ideal.

So with zero chance of finding one here in the UK, I decided that slightly rounding off the corners of the bodged nut would be as good as it gets for now.

Bench grinder to the rescue.

Back on the truck.

Do e.

I did the same thing on one of my trucks years ago. Too cheap to go out and get what I had buckets of in the shop. I ground the nut down like you did.

Not a lot of choice.

If I clearcoat it, or even black....

Job done.

Re: GRIZZís English 2001 S10 Extra Cab 4.3 V6 Truck

For me, right now, even driving 14 miles to town and back ends up in some serious pain.

Mate Kevin drove over to see me today from Maidstone and picked up some anthracite paint at Halfords.

I had decided after painting the centre caps silver, that it was not the right colour and needed changing, regardless of outcome.

So a reasonable match it seemed.



First of two coats.

Difference apparent



First coat on.

Second to follow.



Then Sally popped in, on her way home and I managed to seduce her.......

Withone of these, before she headed off to do a load of chores

Bacon (loads of it) and egg toasty sandwich.

.

Then she went off and I added coat one of clear to the anthracite, which perfectly made it a touch darker.



And much later, a second coat of clear





Have to say, I am really pleased with the outcome.

Fitting when I get a chance.

Very Nice!
