Painted my tailgate lock handle. It was pretty well rusted so..it needed it.

Took a wire wheel to it first to polish it up..(all the pieces, even the wee little ones. I gotta try and stop it from rusting on this poorly designed tail gate)

Then painted it..Might do a second coat tomorrow to make sure I got all of it.


Also tried to get my sub working..turns out the amp my Dad has is blown..so..time to find a new one, or buy one.

i've been cleaning all the junk outta the cab. so much nicer having nothing in the console, nothing in the armrest, just the owners manual in the glove box, and just some CD's and my mag light behind the seat.

Replaced the spark plugs, wires and ignition coil. Then cleaned throttle body, and MAF sensor. Then started to take it for a test drive when suddenly it began shifting very hard. A slamming into gear. Thought it was funny since I hadn't work on Tranny. But I pulled over, popped up the hood and found I forgot to plug harness back into MAF sensor. Started up again for a road trip to the Interstate for a high speed drive. No more hard shifting. Truck runs like brand new. A/C on and has great pickup and power again. Has 3.0 engine. Got it up to 80 mph before I decided all is well again with the truck. I used Autolite platinum plugs and wires. Found two wires bad on old set. One with burn marks where it must have been arching to engine block and another with a split open boot on the plug. For some reason (a) past owner hadn't re-used the standoff plug wire posts on the corners of engine block. So I did! Shouldn't have that problem again. Plugs not bad looking at all. No carbonizing. Must be the Sea-Foam doing it's job. Final note: I washed and dried the truck by hand. Then used some paint in a bottle left over from the body shop when they did body work and paint. Had some rock chips to fill and door dings along edges of the drivers door.

I waxed the scratches out of the doors after my idiot dog got scared of the thunder and tried to jump in. So Dumb.
