Re: What did you do to your truck today!

Put some gas in it this morning and drove it to work, put it up in the air (working at a dealership has it's advantages) and did a lof. Did a quick hand polish on the wheels to try to get rid of some rust spots developing. Then I gave it a bath with the shop's built in pressure washer. Hoping the weather keeps getting better so I can get to installing the stack of parts I have for it over.

Re: What did you do to your truck today!

Worked a little more on the water pump install... waiting on a new upper/lower thermostat housing to arrive, and then we'll begin the install.

Cleaned up some of the motor while I was in there tinkering. Used Simple Green, and got rid of some gunk and junk.

Re: What did you do to your truck today!

Finished the underhood wiring on my LS swap

Finished the radiator, fan shroud, heater and radiator hoses.

Couldn't get my transmission lines to work so I cut them and will be using AN fittings with braided hose for about 8-10 inches at the transmission.

Vacuum booster vacuum hooked up (LS is 1/2 inch and old booster is 3/8ths).

One or two good saturdays and I may get to hear it run and then to the exhaust shop!!

Re: What did you do to your truck today!

Well I didn't do anything to the 67 or 72 today. But my son and I did go look at a 70 GMC Suburban today. It's a parts rig, 3/4 ton, was a BB 4 speed, with roof air. 402 is gone and now residing in a very slick 71 stepside with Buddy buckets and tach dash! But the burb will be sitting in my yard after I go pick it up next week! He bought it for a very good price for what's there.

Re: What did you do to your truck today!

Washed and started the waxing.....

Hood and front fenders are about done but I ran out of clean waxing pads for the rear fenders and tailgate....(tommorow)

Removed the rear tint and wing window tint...none on side windows?

Cleaned up the motor and started making the underhood wiring look good.

Re: What did you do to your truck today!

Was moving parts from the garage to the storage space in the shed yesterday and found a fist size dent in the inner fender well that I had painted about 3 weeks ago. Pounded out the dent, wet sanded and repainted. Yelled a little at wife, kids and in general but am over it now. No one would cop to dropping something on it. Life goes on!!
