Default What did you do to your truck today?

Just like the title says, what did you do to your truck today? Pictures are always a plus, of course.

Today and yesterday I rebuilt my injectors, finished up my dual batteries (1700CCA baby), swapped out my dome light for one from a 2000 F150 (mucho el brightero), and installed a 2000 Explorer overhead console (probably a writeup coming on this one).

I painted the overhead console yesterday, but I think it's the worst spray paint job I'm ever done. It's getting repainted today:


Dual batteries, with the relay box opened, and the e-fan relay (for high) on the right. The 302 damn near comes off the motor mounts when she starts! Don't worry motor mounts are fine, replaced those a few weeks back.

Can't really see them, but this is after the rebuilt injectors:

Dome light:

So what did you do?


89 F-150 5.0l AOD 2x4, 3.55 LS(+4), Converted to HO Roller, 3g Alt, GT40Ps, Y-pipe, Rerouted PCV, Dual Taurus E-fans, Explorer Injectors, Remote ICM, DIY Cold air, Rubber Vacuum System, Tranny cooler, Remote Tranny filter, Saginaw P\S swap, F350 Brakes, more.

Nice!

I thought about setting my truck on fire today and collecting the insurance money... does that count for anything?

I considered setting my truck on fire just because I can. No insurance money for me.
But really I might drive it today, maybe not. It needs some work real bad.
Good work though booba.

Today I'm cleaning up all the wiring from my alarm and relays under the dash. So far there's 6 relays (2 for power locks, 2 to keep the stereo on until the door is opened, one for the alarm to control the headlights, one for the ignition cut off), and a whole bunch of wires and sensors for the alarm\power locks. This is gonna be fun...
