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

Can't believe the distributor cap died on my truck just sitting home in the driveway but thanks to Canadian Tire being open on Sunday and a drive there from a family member we were mobile again within an hour. After the swap to a new cap and rotor I tested the old cap and found ZERO continuity between the coil wire post and the button inside that sits on the rotor. Never saw anything like that before....

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

I painted the grille. Paint was fading off and needed freshening up. I got new lights and lenses since those were all dulled out and lights far from clear. I used the same charcoal color I put on the wheels. I wanted the grille to still look factory while matching the wheels. I was originally trying to match wheels to grille but came out darker. I like the grille a touch darker, kinda like the W/T grille but lighter. Last fall I put a new third brake light and tail lamps in to freshen up the rear.

Before. Can't tell how bad the paint is faded off, but dull and aged looking for sure:

Freshened up. A minor thing, but all lenses on truck now are clear and fresh:
