Nacfest isn't enough motivation? You silly goose.

I'm currently trying to get the AC to work, so my motivation is stuck on that. Luckily, as we all know, rear shocks should take me about 30 minutes to put in.

Ah got it. What's the problem? Got a leak somewhere or an electrical issue? Keep in mind I have an 00 I'm parting out that has all good AC parts minus the compressor.

PS if I were you, I'd give them shocks a try sooner rather than later if I were you. The upper bolts can be a bear and snap some times. There are work arounds if that happens, but it takes time to either drill and tap them or to get and put in the little kit that's sold now to get a better setup out of it. I think Victor knows who sells it.
Just in case.

Re: NACFest 2019 To-Do list

To do-

- figure out how manageable the trans oil leak is.
- install lapbelts
- find spare
- bigger battery?
- get used to strange driving position.

I already have the kit as I assume the bolts will snap. and I've replaced everything on the AC except the compressor and yes, that seems to be where it's leaking

Re: NACFest 2019 To-Do list

Finish the rear disc conversion DONE
Bleed brakes DONE
Alignment DONE
Get inspected DONE
Hope it drives ok still and nothing else breaks
Oil Change DONE
Fluid checks

Somehow passed inspection. They didn't say a thing about all the damage. Gonna recheck the steering and maybe switch it back to underneath the pitman arm. Something just feels off with it. I'm hoping this will be the last year that I actually have to drive it to RC. Hopefully see a truck in my future.

Re: NACFest 2019 To-Do list

Got the passenger tail-light changed over to 97+ sockets finally, and picked up a new fan clutch that I'll install next weekend.

Still got a couple things I want to do yet - assemble the relay box I'm adding as part of the driving lights rewire, filler panel to create more dash plaque room, check battery(am concerned it's weakening, and I've only got about a month left on the warranty), improve the CB microphone extension cable, and check the aim on my headlights - but I'm not in bad shape, all things considered.

Of course, I had to spray foaming wasp killer around my headlights twice yesterday to try and convince the little buggers to stop trying to nest back in there, hopefully once or twice more and I'll be certain they've gotten the hint...

NACfest prep. I washed it and realized it was bent. I added some shackles, thanks ironmanfab.
