Re: What did you do to your truck today!

Tracked down an electrical problem in the tail light circuit & fixed it. No more blown fuses, at least for a while.

Re: What did you do to your truck today!

I bought new door mirrors and weather stripping. Put the mirrors on. Didnt realize I needed adhesive to make the weather stripping stay in place.

Re: What did you do to your truck today!

I finally installed my hitch. It tucks a little deep under the bumper, but it is solid. Wired and ready to go. Now if only the engine ran...

if you take off the cowl panel and look down in the cowling air vent area directly over where the heater core is you'll find it (I hope that makes sense)


I also have these spots on both sides in the channel under the hood-to-cowl seal, and directly beside the other one

Started her up, listened to the misfire, realised I have more work to do than I thought to get her back on the road and then put the cover back on!

Re: What did you do to your truck today!

Changed the oil, fuel fliter and PCV valve. Finally made a spacer to raise the tranmission up and get the drivers side header pipe off of the transmission crossmember. A few more things to check tomorrow, preparing for about a 250 mile trip Sunday to Billet Proof Show in Giddings, Tx.

Thanks for understanding! I was thinking people would be saying to themselves: What, wax a roof? what so tough about that!

yea, doing a burb with rubbing compound is like doing 3 or 4 pick ups! Plus, with my burb I need to use a ladder to do everything from the hood up. I know but after wards - so nice!
