  1. I have a unique set of problems, and apparently saying no is one of them. Hello 1986 Dodge D150 Royal SE with 360 V8 Luckily I don't think I'll lose too much money (if any) if I try for a re-sell on this. Got it for $400 (within CVN Pricing) since the owners wanted $1000 and the scrap man offered $250. It's cheap because the transmission is in the bed. The skinny on this is the original owner gave the truck to his daughter and her husband about 11 years ago. The husband was driving it several years ago and so found it wasn't catching in drive and had issues engaging in low gear

  2. I sold my Fox body last month, and then picked this up.

  3. The F150 had a blend door motor failure earlier this summer when we were on vacation in South Dakota, finally got around to replacing the motor/actuator. Also dropped the big bucks and upgraded to Sync 3 when I had it all apart. You can see the actuator tucked in there on top of the duct work, its a pain to remove that rear bolt holding it down. And this is the easy one of the 2 actuators to replace... Sync 3 is like a space ship compared to the old Sync 2. So much faster and actually responds when you tell it to do something...including just turning the radio on or off which Sy

  4. Its back on the road! Had a few bumps to get it there but with patience and some expert advice and help from Eric the car is up and running great. Full tune up and intake cleaning, new coolant hoses and complete flush and refill with MC gold or G05, new PS reservoir, new water pump, and new IMRC box. Some slight modifications to the emissions system too...Purrs like a kitten.

  5. Some of you may know, but I bought a vanity plate from Arkansas for my truck. It took a while to get, but finally got it! Truck Norris is official! Also, I decided to do a projector headlamp conversion on it as well. After buying some OE style DEPO CAPA headlamp units, I purchased a conversion harness that was supposed to make them work. It didn’t. After more research I reached out to retroshop.us to inquire about their harness. They assured me that it would make my lamps function as factory so I dropped the $160 for their harness. It indeed worked! Now, I have factory projector lamps

  7. I bought a ruby red ecoboost mustang Wednesday. 2019, 13k miles, has 8” screen w/nav. Not super remarkable, but a nice, like new car. I had my 2020 Terrain SLT w13k miles (bought it with 9k miles on a year ago)that I didn’t use much and my good friend Larry needed to sell a car. I told him I wanted another Challenger and he suggested I look at a Mustang. They had this one, a grey one, and a GT. I didn’t want to spend GT money so I chose the ruby red car. I’ll have pictures up soonish. The only one I have is from earlier in the week. We had an ice storm that started Wednesay and my fi

  8. Got my truck back late yesterday from the body shop. Looks just as good as it did before. Damage came in just shy of $5500. They had to replace the rad support, grille, headlight, upper bumper cover and support, left fender support, liner, fender, remove both drivers doors to repair the a pillar, and remove the bed to clear the entire cab side. They butt matched the hood and blended onto the front door which luckily I couldn’t pick out. I also had them paint my flares since they were painting the rest of the items. I’ll get those back on Monday. Three weeks roughly since the accident.

  9. Since Thanksgiving is coming up and I'm headed out of town to see family, I took the car in for tires on Saturday since I'd run the Kumhos down below 4/32nd all the way around. While some may argue about the style, I absolutely wanted another whitewall tire again. However, I did not want to compromise on tire width, as I found the 225/70R15 (fleet size) preferable over the 215/70R15 (retail size). Luckily, Nexen offered a all-season touring tire that fit the bill perfectly. I also took the time to take the set of turbines Nick grabbed for me and did my best to clean and respray them in Ar

  11. Well. It's here. 2 days in the DMV and mostly sorted out. Illinois doesn't even HAVE a code for New Zealand.

  12. Worked the '97 a fair bit yesterday. It was supposed to only move a light trailer, but my plans to move a vehicle fell through with more adequate equipment so... ...I moved my '86 D-150 40 miles one way with it. Kinda arduous working up and down the hills between Augusta and Waynesboro. I maxed around 50 MPH with it in tow as the rear tires on the truck were questionable at best and I wasn't going to push my luck. I planned on dragging the combo down into the building, however after walking in and opening the garage door, I realized there'd be no room to turn my car

  13. In July, Nick helped me swap the tailgate out on the '87. Huge PITA job there getting everything lined up and working. Much of the electrical equipment from the damaged gate had to be swapped into this one since it had sat for so long. Once I got it home, I tried to address a weepy transmission pan that had appeared after I got the car back from the shop a few months ago. Fitted a new pan, gasket, and filter... and it had the gall to puke it out the bell housing while I was re-filling it. Holds fluid running, pukes it out when shut off. Considering what I'm going to check o

  14. I'm going to kindly say please don't go yanking battery cables off the battery with the car running. If you did get a voltage spike or some large flux, the battery acts a bit like a capacitor in that instance so you don't toast your electrical equipment. Plus, yanking the cable's isn't a guaranteed way to verify alternator integrity. If you yank the cable on my '87 wagon, it shuts down, but the alternator is fine. I'd hate for anything on your car to get damaged outside of the scope of what you're working on. Now, all things considered, I have dealt with failing alternators that di

  15. I realized I haven’t posted here for a while, and didn’t update last September when I got this vehicle. The 2015 Mustang has been updated in several ways, including a Borla catback exhaust installed this month.

  16. Well, on my birthday my new Ram truck was involved in an accident and will require some work to look good again. I was not even in the truck as it was hit in a parking lot by a gentleman dragging a gooseneck trailer in an area where a gooseneck trailer does not belong. He wound up dragging the trailer into my, up to then, pristine as new 3000 mile truck that I had owned for 3 days total. I had to fight with his insurance, Farm Bureau, all week and had to threaten suit to get them to admit liability. Parking lot accidents are considered no fault accidents in Arkansas. I was not having tha
