Installed New Headlight Relay Wiring Harness

Purchased a new headlight relay wiring harness kit on amazon for less than $25, got it in two days (even though amazon said it could take nearly a month) and was very pleased with the appearance; the gauge of the wire and that it came with ceramic headlight plugs. Installed it today which was not all too difficult. No more yearly headlamp switch replacements! Here's the link to the harness I bought:

http://www.amazon.com/Headlight-Rela...+relay+harness

Here are some pics of the upgrade process.

Looks good, I wonder if there's anything similar in the UK.

How is a bar made of nerf going stop pedestrians from damaging the front of your truck when they get in your way? Steel it what you need, not nerf.

When you live in NYC this could come in handy.

Replaced the fuel filter lines on the 300tdi during my daughters nap. Old ones had sprung a leak from rubbing.

Started up like a charm after priming the system, and my daughter didn't even wake up to the diesel start up racket.

When I purchased the fuel pump housing, u also invest in a new set of fuel injectors. I'm not sure about the plastic lines the run from the pump. We'll take a look at what we have and the photos that were sent to me. Thanks to all that sent photos if their fuel system.

I was getting out when I got to work and I dropped my hat on the ground. When I bent over to pick it up the door swung into my head. Lol. I'm not sure if it was the latch or the switch that locks the door that got me.

Mine just returned from the shop... rebuilt heads, valves, rockers, push rods, timing chain, and a new cam (stock). Plus a TF pro-sport suspension and their coil over steering damper (jury is out on that one though).
They did some glamor shots of it too.

Been there done that. Have you known the joy that happens when the door striker catches and tears your pant pocket as you get out of the truck ?
Wasted a pair of Tommy Bahama silk pants that way and a couple pairs of shorts.
X Engineering's pant savers are on my wish list.

Its strange how these inanimate objects have very distinct personalities. Some of which are downright beastialities

I've caught a pocket or loop or something, but fortunately it didn't rip.

My current strikers look like this:

No those are anti-burst strikers. They are relatively safe compared to the push button door strikers that will denude you @ the worst possible moment

Fancy rotors on the rear. I don't think they are any real improvement over stock, but they were significantly cheaper than Genuine. I used Genuine pads. I also discovered both rear brake bleeders are broken off.

Finished the Clutch Master & Slave replacement

It was exactly as everyone had described...
A ridiculous example of Nigel's lack of engineering... one more fucking quarter of an inch and the clutch box would have slid in and out in half the time...
Didn't break either of the hard lines, but definitely smart to buy them for the project, cause the upper nut on the lower hard line really wanted to snap off. I tickled and teased it for quite a while before it relented, but if my frustration had gotten the better of me, it would have broken very easily. I wound up replacing everything anyway.
Getting the Master to prime was tricky, but with a little positive pressure it finally pressured up...
Three hours total.
