One more pic of the upper tailgate. Heater element installed. Rick said he saw the bald eagle sitting in front of the house this morning. Good omen I say

I only have the ones that came on the truck. They are the ones with the bakelite knob.

Dan got the door bottoms Dynamat lined, and put on the cappings. They really feel good and solid.

no, thank YOU!
Nobody can do this all alone and I appreciate every spare hand that I can get. We moved forward a ton this past weekend. Getting that major component off the floor and on the truck was a big milestone.
And further thanks for the assistance on the quick and dirty diz swap on the LooB. Runs like a top, no sputtering and lots of power.
PS I did a little more futzing on the rear heater and got the little extra brass bit covered up and cleaned out the blue tape.
For anyone contemplating one of these aftermarket rear screen heaters, they are a VERY FIDDLY thing. I can't imagine attempting to put one on the inside of a sloped rear window....

Bill is correct. That rear window defroster is questionable at best....even more so when Bill is working the heat gun. Sorry about the tape...you said make it tight. But I did see the eagle.
I will come back when its 75 and sunny...or we go to the High Spot. Let me know.
Thanks for every thing Bill...great learning experience.

No I got it from another board member, but I forget who. So much stuff flowing in and out.
I must say I like the door combo too now it's on.
Way more fiddling and adjusting than it aught to be. Took pretty much all day.
License plate has rubber washers behind it to keep junk out. The license plate lamp represents two days soaking in rust-solve, a day painting, and the internals and rubber clean up two hours.
Yup coulda bought a Chinese repro one for a few quid. This one has the slotted hex barrel nut. Unobtanium.
