Sorry guys, didn't mean to make it seem like I was selling it. Just done putting money into it. I was trying to say it will have to live with its problems, cause i wont be fixing anything else right now (like its heavy bump steer and rough ride). I had a lot of plans left and I have money for a few of them, but I've decided to try and purchase another vehicle to keep it company. After that happens, then we can get back to just emptying every pocket
I opened the second set of Window Sill Wipes that TGC sent me and they looked a little better, so I am going to use those.
I got some black RTV and sealed the end caps. After looking at the end caps, the other side is hollow and I figure that water is getting trapped in the space and wicking into the metal. I also sealed the side without the end cap, since it is just rubber-covered metal and the rubber on these was very thin and, in some spots, chipped off.
Also, since it finally warmed up, I went out, after work, and sprayed Loctite Extend on my rock rails and primered the end caps. Tomorrow, if it is still warm, I will primer the rock rails, and paint the end caps gray. When the primer is dry, on the rock rails, I plan to paint them a hammered silver. If it doesn't rain, I am also going to put the chrome tailpipe extension on, and replace all four window sill wipes. I plan to buy the BB 2" lift, soon. If it can be put on by one person, I will do it.
Thought I'd sleep in this morning but no, the wife decided to run to the store and backed into the dub on the way out of the garage. She has a Ford edge with backup sensors so they're always beeping backing out of the garage. First I got mad, but then I remembered that, and then I got mad again for her blatant disregard for rear view mirrors! Arrghh!
Are we getting desensitized by technology? Is it too much to look in the mirrors anymore? I'm waiting the day I hear in the news that someone is suing a vehicle manufacturer for the crash warning system not alerting them soon enough to stop texting and hit the f'n brakes.
