Have seen these on other websites. They are pretty cool and they do good.

I ordered my NASCAR edition air gap manifold

Re: What did you do to your truck today!

Tried to finish dismantling the rest of the water pump assembly, and proceeded to turn the head off the two bolts attaching the thermostat housings (top/bottom). Just one more thing to deal with....

Everytime I take a part off of any vehicle, I either break it, strip it or bust a knuckle. I hope you get it.

Re: What did you do to your truck today!

I vacumed out the interior and removed the ECE parts from the bed so I can detail/wash it this weekend.

My son climbed around on the bench and made vroom vroom sounds while holding the wheel and grabbing the shifter...lol

Re: What did you do to your truck today!

Well I didn't do anything TO my truck but I did do some stuff FOR it. I started enclosing my shop which is where I will (hopefully) finish the teardown and restoration. And I unpackaged my new welder which will (again hopefully) help with that as well.

Today I took out my seat and carpet so I could access the top of my tranny/t-case and soak it and the engine with simple green.

Re: What did you do to your truck today!

Talked to a lady who's husband owns a couple of 67-72 school busses he doesn't use anymore for his rafting company. Gave her my number, hopefully he will call and I can get my gauges finally! Oh, and I rebuilt my truck mentally for like the 9,000th time.
