    DSCF6579.jpgDSCF6578.jpgDSCF6577.jpgDSCF6576.jpgBeing Wednesday and 3 days after the paint I got to thinking how I hate tape removal after the paint sets a few days. The solvents in the paint always mess with the adhesives. But Lucky me. I was able to remove all the tape and only had 1 foul up on the front inner edge of the hood. It pulled paint from the inner edge down to the safety yellow factory hood color. No worries I can touch that up in a jiffy. I liked the results of taping off the entire under carriage and all the door and hood jams. I always do what ever I can to avoid over spray in the jams.DSCF6581.jpgDSCF6584.jpgDSCF6582.jpgDSCF6580.jpgI had a friend that lives near by drop off a gift for me. It was Mr. Rusty's owner. He follows my work all the time. Thank you for looking and Have a Great Day. Be Safe.DSCF6583.jpgNice shirt.

    Having 3 of something always beats a pair. I 81 South Exit 90. Due to deliver Spring 2020. Hope Easter Find and yourself are well. The brown and black paint on this build came from the same cans as the M1008.

    Just passed by your LZ last Friday: picked up a pristine Pioneer Tool Trailer through the Federal Surplus program at Mechanicsburg. So when you say having three of something always beats a pair; Look at my signature, I can say I'm closer to a full house.

    Easter Find is doing fine, we will both be on the road soon. Thanks for asking.

    DSCF4137.jpgDSCF4145.jpgDSCF4146.jpgWell let's just say all is well at base camp. I was in the process of getting the grille trim ready to install when I thought. Wait a moment. I need to make sure everything is operational. The horn and all the lights work. But the horn works then it fdon't work. I checked the connection. I checked the relay. I changed the relay. Still intermittent horn issue.
    I cleaned the contacts under the horn button. They were not really dirty but I cleaned them anyway. I reasssembled and no horn. I grounded it out, no horn. I checked the fuse snug and clean. I check the horn again and it blows. Next moment no blow. I start the truck. No Gen 2 light.
    OK. 1 step backwards. I decided to remove the entire instrument cluster and go at it. Something I really hate messing with. Even after setting wrecked 10 years all the lights worked and the horn. I will figure it out. The pictures above are how the lights were when I resurrected the M1009 from it's glumly grave. DSCF4109.jpg You've come a long way baby.

    DSCF6585.jpgIntermittent horn operation. I removed the steering wheel and the steering wheel will need a good scrubbing so it needed to be removed anyway. DSCF6586.jpgThe issue is the steering shaft has an intermittent ground issue. If I clip the ground of the test light on the shaft threads it will not light the light when the probe is touched to positive. Must be painted somewhere or something. Any ideas? I will work on that Friday. DSCF6588.jpgDSCF6587.jpgI also would like to note that the glow plug card and box are still attached to the correct area under the dash. Not bad for 24 years of ownership. I will be using compressed air and a vacuum to clean out under the dash. DSCF6591.jpgIt still has the stock setup and nice clean original fusible links. DSCF6590.jpgAfter a little work and checking everything out under the dash I found a corroded 10 amp fuse. DSCF6589.jpgI replaced these spade ends back when the stereo was installed. The stereo sort of went bye bye tonight. The speakers went bye bye also. The CUCV is about the worst sounding cab in history. No acoustics at all. Besides this truck is cool enough. I don't need music. Well that is about all I completed tonight. I must figure out where the steering shaft picks up ground. I am also going to move the 4WD wires to the outside and get them off the cab floor. Poor planning there on GM's part. Also disassembling the cluster completely and cleaning everything is on the menu. Have a Great Day. Thank you for looking. Be Safe.

    DSCF6586.jpgI was on the underside of the body looking for the Dephi Packard plug that fits the 4WD switch in the transfer care. I found it cut off. I cut it while I had the body hanging from the ceiling. I managed to find another plug to fit the switch. I had to cut it from a complete wiring harness but you gotta do what you gotta do sometimes. That is a male plug with male contacts. The Black out lights have the male plug with the female contacts on the harness side. Opposite of what I needed. I am going to give my project a break for a few days and spend some Family time. It all works out. Still have to look into the grounding issue with the steering shaft. I had a 61 VW beetle that had a bolt to long on the steering column and grounded out the horn all the time. I did not have this column out so I will side with painted parts as being the intermittent problem. Today it worked for 10 minutes on and off again and then nothing. What gives? I ground my test light from the steering shaft to the horn contact and it blows 10 times then nothing.

    I did venture out in the barn yesterday after work and cleaned and prepped my upper radiator support area for a finish coat of paint. I taped off the areas I didn't want painted and paid close attention to retaining a nice even edge where the fenders meet the radiator support. inside fender edges green and core support semi flat black. Just like new. No pictures and didn't want to risk touching or stirring up dirt so I called it goal met for the day. I did pick up 2 1157 NA bulbs. New headlamp adjustment screws and a new set of Trucklite LED headlamps. Why NOT? Do it right the first time. I did stray from stock on the headlamps but so be it. I have many halogen headlamps in stock. Have a Great Day. Be Safe. Horn still blow on demand. That's a good thing.
