90 not starting

Stuck in the middle of no where trying to start it up after media blasting. Dash lights all come on but when I turn to start nothing happens. It's got a brand new starter so I don't think it's that and it's getting extra power from a battery box. Any ideas other than AAA? Thanks!

Been there, done that. I push started the truck and drove down the road leaving a long white trail of baking soda. It was quite the site. I hit the relays below the fuse panel and the ignition switch with compressed air and everything started working again.

If it's not turning over you can push start it.. Or jump the large terminal on the starter to the small terminal... But please make sure it is out of gear first...and parking brake securely on..

Happy to help! I still find baking soda in the weirdest places on my truck.

I've still got walnut shell coming out of almost every orifice after driving the truck.

Black but with a very flat gloss so that the little dings from the squaddies aren't too noticeable.

Check out Hot Rod Flatz paint. I did a gray color with the finish you described.
