yay for me having a stock truck.
I want to do the throttle cable mod, but am scared to do anything, because I really do not know what I'm doing and am afraid I'll fuck something up.

I don't think my hood is fiberglass, and I dont like fiberglass body parts anyway.

Hey guys, check this out: Thread: Tire Shine and Undercoating?

Did some work today.

Washed my truck, and the underneath, frame area, really well.

Tried this Armor All Tire Shine product, to help bring back my black gloss shine of my nice big duratracs.

Also tried this Rust-oleum Rubberized Undercoating protective spray.
Anyone ever use this stuff?
A cold, snowy, salty, Minnesota winter is coming up, and i just want a little more protection under there. I wash my truck alot, as much as possible in the winter, to help keep the salt off.








Some before and after shots.




Fender well Before

Fender well After

The only down side of that under coating is that it traps the rust inside and may cause some harm over time..

And for the life of me I can't figure out how to change the tire size on my programmer....I don't think it will let me

Your truck looks great after the clean up!!!!!

Some people dont wash their vehicles. My friends truck has been "washed" maybe 1 time in the last year. He usually just sprays it with a water hose

Some of the stuff is suppose to BOND with the rust...... eventually i want to do POR-15 over it all... that stuff bonds and hardens with the rust..... suppose to make it last 10x longer.

Anyway i pressure washed it all, go loose debris off and as clean as could be.... so this should get me thru this winter, and hopefully next fall i can take the bed off and other stuff and do alot more rust-prevention.

Hopefully more people will chime in soon.

I am working on a map of the area and where to meet, will have it posted up soon.


Spent most of the day unpacking and organizing, the rest of the day doing my wheels and under-coating... it turned out pretty good.... you guys will have to see it before it gets covered in mud, lol.

Ok here are 2 different maps, hopefully u can figure it out.





Basically find your way to Pine River, find (2) or 24st SW, and head WEST. If you hit hwy 64, you went too far... Basically look for Gravel Pits, on your LEFT (to the south).
We should meet at the SECOND one, it has, or had a nice mud hole in it. The first one is more for atvs.

I will probably be coming thru staples, and be coming up hwy 64.

THE MAIN PARK ENTRANCE, is closer to hwy 64, if your coming from Pine River, then it will be after both gravel pits. If your coming from 64, then its before the pits.
If you see the main entrance sign, you can follow that for like 6 miles into the forest and it will lead you to a big parking area.
I say we meet at one of the Gravel pits first!

It should be, on 64, take a right onto 24st sw.

----------

If u are coming up 64, if I remember right, on the corner of 64 and (2) 24st sw there is a big old building, can't miss it.

----------

Im off to sleep, goodnight peeps.
