    Swapped out interior bulbs with LEDS & changed the dash gauge lighting to white instead of ugly green and painted the gauge needles red instead of orangish/pinkish color . Looks 10x better!

    I pulled my rusting bed tie downs out of the back of the bed, sanded them down and am in the process of repainting them. Only the rear ones are doing this the fronts, which are painted black are ok.

    All I got to do is hook up my friends scangauge to do a finally calibration for the gauges since a couple are a slightly off. I could of done a better paint job on the needles too but was rushing. I did leave 3,2 gear green still, debating if that should stay or go.

    Ended up doing a bunch of things to the truck today. 1. Flushed the radiator, cleaned it out, put in some anti-rust solution and refilled it. 2. Put engine flush into the oil then changed the oil and filter. 3. Changed out the lca nut to a zerk fitting for ease of access to the grease. 4. Put in 4 new pioneer speakers changed all settings on the double din head unit. 5. Washed the truck and detailed the interior. 7. Repainted grille emblem and re plasti dipped grill, removed V8 badge from grille 8. Also ran some seafoam through the gas. One simple thing led to a long day of hanging out in the driveway.
