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

Put the new 3 bolt round stock mirrors on, and my new armrests,yanked out all the A/C stuff to get new vintage air system sooner or later, and ready to put the new wiring harness in. Rebuilt the A/C control levers and put in the new chrome ventballs and painted the housings to match the rest of the interior and put in new defroster vents as well with all new vent ducts to boot!! Tomorrow going to put a new trans pan gasket and filter and a new tailshaft seal to try to stop a nuissance tranny leak I have had. Been a busy weekend for me!!

Are you replacing the defrost/heater/AC duct hoses too? Why I ask is because I just recently bought some replacements from AutoZone, http://www.autozone.com/autozone/acc...ier=80248_0_0_ I got this info from a board member on here. I know it's not OEM but cheaper than what LMC is selling. Just a FYI.

My interior upgrade continues - I installed new Soffseals around the doors as the old weatherstrip wasn't performing well at all. Also got the the wiring cleaned up inside the dash, reinstalled the glove box and door, plus the dash bezel. Next comes the fat mat and carpeting.

That's movin', it would probably have been close to that if it wasn't for the 3" of grease incasing the whole motor. Wish I'd taken a pic, dang thing looked like it was salvaged from the titanic covered in barnacles.

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

Picked up a tailgate and front bed panel off CL for cheap. They need a little work but they're better than what I got now which is no tailgate and a rotted front panel. Nothing a little hammer and dolly won't fix. The price was right.
