It should be fun! The coilovers are going up front and I'm going to see how well I can make the truck work with a Rover coil spring in the rear with those bypasses. I've already cut all of my suspension brackets off and have been doing a ton of design work for the new 3 and 4 link. Lots of work ahead of me!

Dave, just for future reference -- all stainless hardware requires lubrication for assembly. Some hardware is better than others at not 'galling', as it is known, and I think it comes down to the type of stainless alloy they're made of. You should keep a tub of anti-seize on hand for times when you're working with stainless fasteners, and a quick wipe across the first couple of threads is all you need to keep them from locking up.

You may find that, while the bolts you purchased from Ace went together fine, they may not come apart without seizing.

Ash, I'm starting a buildup just recently and everything is getting a healthy dose of the silver grease/ anti seize(especially the stainless)
Do you recommend a particular flavor of anti seize?
How do the trucks in your area look when they have been down there for years?

I've been using Permatex 80078. I bought the tub like 3 years ago and it's finally starting to run out, and I may try something different, but mostly out of curiosity than need. I think any aluminum or nickel based product will work just fine. Keep in mind these products are designed for very harsh, high temperature environments so we're not asking much of them.

As for condition...It really depends on where the truck lived in the state. The ones living on the coast are usually pretty tired, but I've been surprised by a few lately. They're traditionally much, much better than the ones I see coming out of the North, though.

Replaced the Turbo boost diaphragm and a pyrometer / VDO gauge....the boost diaphragm was totally shot..not just a small hole but torn...truck is running sooo much better...pulls nice and strong and is back to starting up with very little glow on the first turn of the key...placed the pyro probe just under the inlet of the turbo so should get some good readings...

Pulled the oil filter housing on my OM617 to retap and seal an unused sensor hole. Total pain in the ass. All the work to remove it and it seems I have broken a subsequent part within the oil filter housing itself. It is essentially a sprung plastic finned back flow protection valve in which the small broke off. Best I can tell, worst case scenario this could cause the valve to remain open. . Not sure what that would mean. Why can't things be more simple? Click image for larger version

Began Dynomatting the rear cargo area, removed Nakatanenga seat rails, (loved the legroom, but tool tall for me), and installed Alpine SWE-1200 powered subwoofer to back of console. Mates well with factory Alpine 133 deck.

And ran into JimC in his sweet 130 at the grocery store.

Dude, I hear Ya. Seems 75% of the stuff I touch the first time goes sideways on me somewhere. My wife and kids love to give me a hard time about it. I have a buddy that owns a small shop and works alone and he says it's the nature of the beast and few things are more valuable than experience. It's a tough-ass school though and takes some thick skin at times.

Had work meetings disrupted and used the 110 to take companions to functioning airport in Germany, then headed home.

What did I do to it today? Actually washed the 90. I mean with soap. And a sponge. And a brush on the tires. Literally...I think the first time ever.

Now, I pressure wash it on a regular basis don't get me wrong - and the truck has always been an "inside dog" (it's not like it lives outside for the love of Pete). But it's like the dog that comes home covered and mud and God knows what, and you never really give it a bath you just hose it down out in the backyard shaking your head...sort of like when Jules & Vincent get the hose down after blowing Marvin's brains out.

We'll see what the truck ultimately thinks about it. I have a feeling it's now going to revolt and probably start acting up on a regular basis knowing my luck. But figured it was worth trying it once to see what all the hubbub was about.

I get a big box of parts from Trevor last night. Today I swapped out my middle door handles so I now can open them up from the outside. I also lined the inside of the doors with Second Skin since I had the door cards off. I also fixed the front windows so they roll all the way down. Some of the screws holding the tracks in place had pulled out and blocked the tracks.

Hadn't heard of second skin before. Better than dynamat/the mcmaster version?

Because my t-case already ate 1 VSS and I was sick of laying under my truck. BTW, the 5 bar is original ExMOD paint, the wing and the top of the antennae mount is Krylon Camouflage ultra flat with 2 coats of Rustoleum Satin finish spray. Close enough for me.

Center console - EGTs on top, boost on bottom. 80dB alarm for EGTs mounted on the backside.

Clock is from a Mercury Sable - the display was supposed to be green, not blue. Oh well. I never realized how much I like having a clock in the truck.

I used a 5" grinder with cutting wheel which worked very well other than the corners, and then a thicker grinding wheel to clean up the edges after. Will post up more pics once I get it all buttoned up. I know the dog is going to be very happy with it, no more sleeping standing up just so he doesn't miss something!
