Damn that could have been a cross country mess. Glad you got that sorted out.

Took the truck to the auto skills center and changed the sals diff pinion seal due to a major leak/hemorrhage. Took way too long for such a simple job - way out of practice

Did you have to strip it or just kept driving it down the road and it all flaked off?

Funny!
Baking soda blasted, minor body work, re-sanded the entire truck, washed with soap and water then wiped down with a pre-primer solvent. I'll mask it tomorrow morning, wipe it with a tack cloth then HVLP gun the primer on. Wish me luck, I have never done this but have watched dozens of Youtube video's on the topic and have talked to several knowledgeable folks for tips and gotcha's. By this time tomorrow I will be a hero in my own mind or a failure with a lot of sanding to do.

Great video. I like "it fits four people in the back quite comfortably" line. She looks really good for being nearly 30.

Loaded up the provisions and gear for 3500 mile trip through Death Valley, Mojave and Yosemite. Will be a good test for all the major repairs and modifications over the last year. I leave in the morning and will take 2 weeks to complete and return home rover gods willing!

I regret not trying to get two more friends to go on the cross country trip.
