    I should get cross slide vice for this stuff. For some reason I wanted the tag reinstalled. 🙄I installed both of the coolers on the transmission. 🇺🇸🇺🇸🥓🥓🥃🥃 #m1010 #cucv

    A little behind the times here... Been working through cleaning this beast up. Strangely therapeutic... :unsure: Fluid came out nice and clean and no metal inside. New ARP bolts for the tail shaft housing to get rid of the 10mm 12 point ones. Still need to get the coolers on! 🇺🇸🇺🇸🥓🥓🥃🥃 #m1010...

    The purest will be unhappy but I prefer the functionality and lack of rattling. A 10-24 button head, a nylon washer, and a nylock nut. I had to drill out the frame on the window portion but everything is snug now! Installed the new handle to the old glass. Everything pulls tight on the seals! 😎...

    Replacement Fuel Tank

    I bought my tanks and senders from Advance Auto, the senders a Spectra and I think Dorman makes the tanks. The tanks were coated inside and out and seemed as good a quality as I took out. You can use a 25% off code (RMNAAP25) and get them for $75 each shipped.

    The vent windows are in... with a little challenge. I set the glass in the new frame (twice) with the setting tape as per the directions and let it sit for a couple days before setting the tension for the window to open. It pulled apart once installed, wouldn’t close correctly due to now rubbing...

    Progress on the vent windows with all parts from Precision Replacement Parts. Tools of the trade while installing new seals.

    Got the starter in. Old mounts compared to a new stock one. Rubber is dry rotted and cracked but in tact. Not the worst I’ve seen but definitely sagging compared to a new one. Maybe a little more vibration at idle with the DIY4X ones but the truck seemed smoother and quieter at speed. I’ll have...

    6.5 Turbo Exhaust

    Here is a video that shows one inside the frame rail. He used a Diamond Eye kit. He was supposed to make a video how he modified the pipe to fit but I don't think he ever did...

    During the warm sunny days this week I decided to check something else off the list! I scrubbed down the roof real well last week and grabbed a can of Henry 887 silicon. I was able to get two coats out of it. Roof is sealed, reflects heat, and sounds less tinny! 🇺🇸🇺🇸🥓🥓🥃🥃 #m1010
