Re: What did you do to your truck today.The 3rd chapter

Got the bracket for the power booster assembled (that was yesterday) and fitted up today. Have to clean and repaint that area of the firewall first, but hopefully soon itíll be on. Media blasted with the natural parts painted VHT hi-temp satin clear and the booster bracket was done in VHT satin black epoxy.

Re: What did you do to your truck today.The 3rd chapter

Whoops. Looks like I forgot to post my new LMC exhaust. I pulled the old exhaust with the glasspack since the pipe crimped up notably when it turned under the cab. The new system stopped all of that dreaded backfiring.







I actually like the sound.

Today I put shocks on the back. Put the front ones on a couple a days ago. Changed the gear oil and gasket a couple of weeks ago.

Re: What did you do to your truck today.The 3rd chapter

Got tired of getting the black stuff from my steering wheel on my hands on these humid days so I yanked it off and did a quick paint job to it. A little scotch bright scuff and a few coats of rattle can satin clear and we're good to go.

Eh, I wanted to do the work myself. Just one of those things that I enjoy if I'm capable of doing them. The Ball joints just beat me, but thankfully the exhaust was relatively easy.

Re: What did you do to your truck today.The 3rd chapter


Scored a new steering wheel on FB marketplace for $35, including the mounting kit. Much better than the old 70's Camaro wheel, and the bonus is now I have a working horn which I haven't had in 14 years because the old wheel didn't have the internals for the horn.

I finally put the polycarbonate on my camper today. I need to pull the front and rear hold down trim pieces back off to modify a little. Once I figure out a brown material for cover I will put that on with stainless buttons I have.

Yesterday I washed, waxed, wiped down the interior with leather wipes and got it ready for the 2019-25th anniversary Hot Rod Power Tour for this Friday. 2000 mile round trip.

After talking to tech support at Air Lift I have found out that the kit I need is 60811. Per the measurements I gave them. Ride height of truck inside spring and inside diameter of springs.

Re: What did you do to your truck today.The 3rd chapter

I did the 500 mile break in oil and filter change today. I'm using NAPA 10/30 with Lucas Oil additive that has the zinc in it. Also replaced the coil in the HEI, I've been having problems with the engine not wanting to start after driving a while and getting good and warm. I've replaced two modules and no luck so I'm trying a different coil.

Re: What did you do to your truck today.The 3rd chapter

Worked on the passenger door I bought to replace the one on the 68. This one looks to have been reskined at some time in the past.
