Re: Daddyjeep Hauler - 85 K30 crew cab short bed

I would put a little marvel mystery oil in the fuel and the crankcase. Then take it for a drive and baby at first to make sure it's lubed well then whoop the snot out of it.

I've never used the stuff, but have heard good things. Maybe it is time to pick up a can.

I painted up the B pillar trim with the Duplicolor Flat Black vinyl die. I am really liking this stuff. It goes on smooth no matter what you do to it and dries very quick. I had a run on the one piece and once dried it was completely gone.

I let the truck run for about 20 minutes so I could see what the temp would do. I am thinking it does not have a thermostat. It crept its way up to about 210 but the upper radiator hose never built pressure. It was hot and I could feel flow going through it. Either way, I'm going to pick up a thermostat. Most of my gauges are working, but I have no gauge lights. I guess it is possible that all of the bulbs are out, but is probably more likely to be a wiring problem. The radio actually works. It is a really nice aftermarket Jensen from about 1990 (I'm not sure how to type sarcasm). The speakers are crap, but those yard sale pioneer 6x9's helped a lot. Eventually I will get into the dash and put some decent speakers in there and I will put a better head unit in.

This is my temporary solution. I don't like it there, but it works for now.

I got my speaker boxes cut down so they fit behind the seat and got them wired in.

Out with the faded blue door panels.

In with dyed black door panels with gloss black inserts.

Re: Daddyjeep Hauler - 85 K30 crew cab short bed

I did some trouble shooting on my power windows tonight. I have power to the drivers door and to the passenger rear door, nothing to the other two. Anyone have any thoughts on where to start? I haven't even started looking at motors or switches.

Re: Daddyjeep Hauler - 85 K30 crew cab short bed

probably bad master switch (driver door).... I would buy all new switches, and do the relay mod to all of your windows now, while its all apart. One of the best things I did on my truck!

Old faded door panels...

[IMG][/IMG]

Freshly coated with duplicolor fabric and vinyl dye. I used matte black for all the plastic. Grey for the fabric and high gloss for the stainless trim.

Re: Daddyjeep Hauler - 85 K30 crew cab short bed

Thanks guys. I wanted to do something different with the door panels. I like how the different textures work together.

Re: Daddyjeep Hauler - 85 K30 crew cab short bed

I called me inspection guy to see if a rear bumper is required in this wonderful state of Pennsylvania, and of course it is. Since I have not shortened the rear of my bed yet my beat up factory bumper can't go on there. I have plans of building a nice custom bumper, just not right now. So....what scrap do I have laying around...

[IMG][/IMG]

Yep, that 8' long piece of exhaust tubing is perfect. I will weld on a license plate bracket and of course the required license plate light. I also have to pick up a socket for the tail light as it is worn and the bulb makes intermittent contact. I had to change a few bulbs, but all of my lights actually work.

Almost ready.
