Good Eye,
Heater fan is not working and he said the the headlights were aimed too high. I argued the fan due to the fact that you could open the vents.

I got a GM blower motor and rewired it to run the opposite way, but since i took took out the heater box, i decided to rebuild the entire heater. Right now i'm waiting on a heater matrix and bulkhead seal from England.

Ended up installing led lights, switches and a volt meter. My cubby had a little damage from the previous owner, so i decided to install some switches where the damage was.

I've puzzled over the erratic temperature reading on my D1 powered truck for some time. It shouldn't be happening given that I have mostly new parts Inc radiator for some time. On a whim decided to replace the thermostat. Surprising variety of makes and quality if Rock auto are to be believed. Such a cheap part, so important going cheap by a couple of bucks doesn't seem worth it. Let's see if it makes a difference.

Today was a busy but good day. I started the day taking the 110 out to watch the sun rise and then spent the afternoon finishing some trim on the interior and securing the new floors (vintage bamboo). I know wood on the floor in the back isn't for everyone, but they turned out better than I envisioned.

Shake down trip

Took the completed setup out for a shake down today. After 7 hours, many trails, several technical areas all above 9,000', the only problem we had was a loose mudflap. Ready for some more exploring.

About 10 days ago I replaced the radiator hoses with Allisport silly-cone ones. I had an excuse because the heater core was broken (broken tube) and I went ahead and installed the sweet alloy core also from Allisport. I'm really happy with both. The core did require some cutting on all four of the little brackets which hold retain the core because it is overall 10-15mm thicker than the stock one.

Nice work

Looks good, Jim.

Did the new hoses line up correctly with new core?

Yeah, they lined up great. The previous core had the forward-facing pipes.
