What did you do to your truck today?


Recommended Posts

I have a couple grab handles off a Peterbilt that I want to put on the Freightliner to help the wife and kids get in easier. I figured a few self taping screws and we will be good but the skin is awfully thin right there by the doors. I will have to pull some interior panels out and find some structure.

Lots of fiddling and screwing around, but got it.  Knocked the big lumps off the Volvo this morning.  Now it's getting a soft water rinse, courtesy of Mother Nature.

 

Have you run the litmus test ? It may be an acid rinse . ;)

To post pictures, go to the site recommended by Jack. http://photoposting.is-great.net/

After selecting your picture and converting it into a URL, strip off the [IMG] from the beginning and end. Then copy the remaining link and post that into the forum using the Other Media link. A little clumsy, but it works. Jay

Thanks, did not know that before!!! 😃😃😃

I got a lot done today, I am sunburnt, my arms burn from polishing by hand, and delt with the in laws all day. Everything turned out great. I am going to do everything I can to get them posted tomorrow. I am going to post on Facebook tonight if you are on there on the HDT forum.

Later Cory Ossana

It snowed so I thought I would do a quick tune up on my generator. That turned into a couple broken bolts and needing new rings. I was going to actually follow directions and pull the heads off to clean the carbon. I sold have just kept buying new spark plugs. The first side came off real easy. The head gasket was leaking. Not a big deal they are $12. The other side was the one that wouldn't come apart very easy. So for now I am gong to pull it off the truck and install my spare. I may be in the market for a new generator. We will see. The bolts were really messed up so I'm not confident that the threads will be much good either.NE2C4hjl.jpg

Looks like it's time to polish those bolt removal skills.  I think I'd try the ol' "weld a washer and nut on the broken bolt" trick.

They started coming out then got tight. I worked them back and forth until the first one snapped. There were 4 that were stubborn. We will see how this goes.
