Re: What did you do to your truck today? Chapter II

Dad found his impressive cable crimping tool for me and I finished painted 7 pieces for my truck.

Two lower 3 row radiator brackets
Two headlight buckets
Two j-nuts *yes I paint those.
One hood latch support bracket

I have to paint outside and with this rain coming, none too soon!

Cleaned most the junk out of the cab and bed, then loaded it on the trailer for the trip home on Wednesday.

After talking to tech support at Air Lift I have found out that the kit I need is 60811. Per the measurements I gave them. Ride height of truck inside spring and inside diameter of springs.

Re: What did you do to your truck today? Chapter II

I just came in. I put the newly repainted headlight buckets back on, cleaned the last of the electrical connections, including studs on starter and engine block ground, connected the last two ground wires to the core support, and removed the two front wheels. Yes, my rotors need sanding!

Re: What did you do to your truck today? Chapter II

I also cleaned up the headlight retaining ring screws with a wire brush and bought some machine screws, washers, and lock nuts (stainless) to mount the front side marker lights. I don't really like J-nuts and I hate pointy screws....you can cut your hand reaching into the fender for something.

Re: What did you do to your truck today? Chapter II

Put the flush-fitting front side marker lenses on with 8-32 stainless steel machine screws, washers, and nylon lock nuts. Not "OEM" but I don't like j-nuts or pointy screws. Seems to be working fine.

Hub seals, packed bearings and new pads. Son gets the joy of re torquing the lug nuts.

Bad side of today saw how bad the frame is cracked up by the steering box.

Repaired the engine bay wire harness and dimmer wiring on the '67 custom and drove it.

Installed the front sheetmetal on the '68 Cummins swap for the last time!

Knocked the dirt dauber nests out of the alternator, and sprayed down the wasps that are trying to take over our project.

Geeze, and I thought I had it bad!

I reinstalled my headlights and retaining rings. I ended up using two of the original screws but 4 new 3/4 inch machine screws. It was just too hard to get the OEM short ones started. Turns out two of new ones are too long to fit properly so I'll have to get some 1/2 inch ones and try those. It doesn't help that my retaining rings aren't fully round....they've been bent some time before I came to own this truck. Ugh......
