I just about got all the mechanicals out of the way, new brake hoses, heater core, radiator cap, done. I removed and cleaned once again the radiator resovour, still have oil remains in there Man, I am liking the brick layout for the heater core, out in like 5 minutes. I still have to do some driving to see that the sticky brakes and heat that it generates have disappeared.
Onto the electrical upgrades next; cb, 12v power sockets and a little project for night time celebrations of the 4th.
I also got to do the striping of the lf fender and re apply the moulding on the bed. I am not liking the install of vinyl, looks ok at about 30 feet. I also found my truck to be so dirty that I am starting the cleaning process with Purple Power and a rag, that stuff works darn good.
Darrin, that grill is looking awesome!! I know I am not the only one working late in the game........
That's awesome Darrin, but is it going to affect your temps while towing your trailer to the rally?
I've had a problem in the past with the transwarp coupling having a vibration above 85 mph. new u joints, center-support bearing and a spin balance job good for 125mph has now restored warp capabilities. add an e-brake cable and a new "muffler" I'm good for my TX safety inspection.got it's oil change and fuel fiter change and she's ready for cargo and weapons loading tomorrow.
