Re: What did you do yo your truck today??

Last weekend I updated my "moonie" to the "needle" instrument panel. Donor truck was a '93 suburban for both the panel and the drac. Used the mod instructions listed plus instrument panel wiring diagrams for both my '88 and the donor '93 plus the ecm diagram for my '88. More soldering than I've done since high school electronics class but it turned out great!

Put my 4" Diamond Eye exhaust on my 95 today. With a little bit of modification to fit my style...

Plugs, Wires, Cap, Rotor, Intake gasket (upper), all tie rod ends, Idler arm and Idler arm assy, and Pitman arm. So glad to have all that done. Runs like a champ and after the alignment it drives true and straight.

Re: What did you do yo your truck today??

Swapped out my mangled and torn up original seats for a real good set of salvage yard seats from a 1998 Silverado. I figure they must have been hiding under seat covers from new since there isn't even any sun faded sections. Had both of the old seats out back in May when I was repairing the body mounts so swapping in the new ones only took a half an hour - 15 minutes of which was spent trying to remember how to put that center seat belt back together after I took it apart to get it through the small access hole in the seat LOL.

Re: What did you do yo your truck today??

I did some brake work this morning for my dad by replacing both wheel cylinders and a brake drum on his 97 chevy 2-door tahoe. Sadly though I bled the back 2 brakes after my dad lost a bunch of brake fluid from the leaky wheel cylinder and the brake pedal still goes all the way to the floor. I'm leaning towards a master cylinder needing to be replaced at this point. Oh a plus side though, I ordered my 5/7 drop from Belltech for my 93 gmc extended cab truck. It probably won't get shipped out until August 11th though. No big deal though, I still need to order some wheels for it anyways before I drop it.

Hey Jerbou, did you buy a kit to do all that frame work or did you fabricate all of that? I haven't seen a set up around like that before with the pan hard bars and all.

Re: What did you do yo your truck today??

Swapped out my rear slider with the leaky plexiglass center section for a factory tinted fixed glass. No more raining in the truck !!! Next up is fix holes in floor caused by the broken slider, looks like 2 about 4" diameter each.

Re: What did you do yo your truck today??

After 315k miles, the upper radiator hose finally blew out a small hole which forced me to replace it lol. Glad it didn't happen on my quick rode trip to OKC for the Buick vs. Ford shootout.

Re: What did you do yo your truck today??

In the last 2 months on my 89 I've reupholstered my bench seat with vinyl. Installed new upper and lower control arms, front shocks. New master cylinder (NBS) new brake booster. New headlights/ parklights and wiring harness to go with it. 3 color LED taillight bar. Had to put on a new starter. I also replaced the seal and oil in the rear end. I have new door weather seals i need to put on sometime soon and wheel arch trim.

Re: What did you do yo your truck today??

I replaced all the brake lines to the rear. I had some 1/4 stainless lying around the shop to go from ABS to rear hose and used coated 3/16 for the rear axle lines. I was backing down a boat ramp when the line let go. That got my attention. I did manage to retrieve the boat with the front brakes working and a low pedal.

Then apply some pressure and check. Go easy it is easy to go to far. By binding the hinge it will bend it back and raise the rear of the door. The idea is to have an even gap at the rear or the door and the body lines at the rear aligned. The fender to door gap is aligned with the fender. If the whole door seems low before doing anything loosen the door to hinge bolts and see if the whole door will come up a little.
Doors should be aligned with the striker removed and should fit without the striker influencing it.
Will you please post a picture of what you're describing? I would like to see exactly where to put the block of wood.
