What did you do to your truck today?
Posted 01 February 2009 - 10:48 PM
over 250 pages long.
Post what you've done to your truck today. As little as cleaning the
windows to as much as swapping the motor. As always, post pictures
when you can.
Today I pulled the door panels off so I can take them to work and
re upholster them and measured the belt line window weather stripping.

This weekend I stripped the Hustler of all the good parts. Pulled the engine and tranny, SOLD btw, took out the glass, ALL the interior and wiring. Stripped the doors off and started filling old mirror holes and painted one of them flat black for the KC. I also swapped my brown interior in the KC for the black that was in the Hustler. MUCH better condition. If anyone has a stock black '79 steering wheel for sell, let me know. Or one from a old Z car. Not a wood one just an old deep dish Z wheel.
Jes, I have a good steering wheel from my truck, you can have it. Call it a trade for the window if you must.

I took off the air filter and sprayed some WD-40 in there. It sputtered and then fired right up!
I put in a new air filter since I had it apart. No problems sense, and I'm not really sure what the issue was. The WD-40 was just to see if I still had any spark. hmmm
yes, this is a 2000 Frontier

I got the exhaust put on- Finally fixed the heinous leak at the bottom of the manifold/flange.
Had the rust-fest original exhaust cut off and put a 2 1/4" Magnaflow in it's place.
I had a 2 1/4"-to-3" chrome tip sitting around, so I had them tack that on. (IMHO, it's a little ricey for my taste- huge tip, 2 1/4" piping... but it looks way better than before!) It sounds sweet! ruuuuuummble! and no more backfire!
Retorqued heads (500miles), re-checked valve lash,
Installed kill switch, heated and bent accel. pedal shaft so it won't hit the bolt on the e-brake. (it wasn't getting full travel)
failed at attempt at wet sanding some overspray off the fender- now I have to repaint the whole stupid section. stupid me.
the end. for now.
