Parts rep was telling me that it's very common in the auto industry for car manufacturers to change/update part numbers throughout the years.

Just wondering why you flushed the power steering fluid (again)?

I was bored and had 2 extra bottles of power steering fluid laying around. I don't like having oil sitting around for too long. I feel like it's going to spoil like milk.

Got my HID projectors stuck in the truck again. Preliminary aiming is pretty much done, just waiting for darkness to see how things are working. Removed the grille and corner markers to make it easier to take the buckets in and out many times.
No my truck doesn't lean like that, it's just the photo for some reason.

After 7 months, my truck got a hand wash and I cleaned the inside. I don't drive it much anymore since I got my Mustang but I accepted a new job 1700 miles away and will be towing a small uhaul trailer with the truck next month. Going to be an interesting trip! Also really looking forward to having a house with a garage. No more apartment living!

How much did that set you back? I need a new bottom cover but everything is like $400 and I'm not wealthy enough to throw that much into a seat that'll be torn up again soon enough.

I straightened the bumper on the latest addition to the family by lifting it in the back with a fork lift and bouncing it. Looks much better.

Fork lifts make great friends.

I washed her this morning. Full clean inside and out

I've been really happy with the plastidip so far, it's held up well and with a little armor-all it cleans up to a nice deep black.

Put some effort into cleaning it. It has been so neglected lately.

Photobucket now wants $$ in order to allow 3rd party hosting. Fuck them, I'll take the pics elsewhere.
