Over the course of last weekend and after work this week I've changed the leaking water pump, both tstats, all coolant hoses, cap, pulled and cleaned the stack. Added a cat water separator to my Kennedy lift pump setup, changed oil & fuel/oil/trans spin on filters, installed a 4" dp back exhaust, changed all steering components minus the box, sway bar and end link bushings, front diff oil and flushed brakes and hydroboost. Looks like another trans cooler line change isnt far behind. Ill save that misery for another time. Alignment scheduled for 1st thing tomorrow. Pumped to have it back up but its been a looooong week. 330K miles and still truckin'.

Took my hood off and took it in to be repainted. It was peeling on the drivers side on the flat surface near the left side almost to where the hood curves up to the raised portion. Almost the whole length of the hood. It was ugly. Glad to have it back to normal. Cost me $600 including paint.

Hah, you'll laugh at this...

I finally upgraded the Banks PowerPDA (palm pilot) to the iDash gauge. After 13 years of sitting in the heat and a couple battery changes, that poor Palm Tungsten had had it...

Many original incandescent burnt out.

Nice. Are you doing the instrument cluster too?

Do your blue LEDs have built in resistors so they work with 12V, or are you going to put some resistors inline with the LED so they don't get over-driven? And IIRC, 2 of the HVAC bulbs are wired in series, so you need different resistors or led's for them to look right (at least with the dual-slider hvac controls).
