Finally! Got my head out of my a$$ and got around to bed lining my sliders and rockers. I've been putting off the task because I wanted to do them both at the same time and thought the rockers were going to be more work than they actually were. All in all very productive day. Now I can't wait to actually install them (hopefully on Sunday)!

Today, I opened my passenger door to find an inch or spoof water in the foot-well. Heavy rain overnight. Urgent investigation required as a storm is heading our way !

FOr future reference - a small leaf was blocking the drain hole in the electric sunroof surround. The surround filled up and flooded the vent(?) hole directly above it, which seemingly is connected to the door frame handle internationally.

Who knew .... such a simple thing could create such a soppy mess and due to a small design error that was triggered by Autumn !!

Off to the garden centre to buy water absorbing granules.

Nice job!

I covered the rectangular holes with some tread tape that you put on steps for traction.
It blends well with the bedliner paint and can be removed easily to reinstall the plastic rocker covers.

Careful with those nutcerts.

I guess I gotta look into this, mine is doing the same thing.

Did the same one last spring. Sure makes a huge difference!

Change the oil.

Change the spark plugs after 90K miles, all 16 of them. Did the left side first, used the plug socket with a short extension and a wobble socket not because I needed the wobble but because it made the right length. Done and running great.

Day 2 - still leaking and I think the issue is that the drain isn't flowing as it should. I managed to get a wire down about 18 inches to clear and blockages but I think it may be an air bubble is created !

I believe he was replying to my post about my rockers and sliders.

Extended my rear diff breather. 6' of hose and a hose clamp.

I also plast-dipped my rims.

Put the old cap on the new hose. Ziptied into the right rear tailight housing.


Here is the old hose. It only runs up to the rear floor level. Seems like a bad spot to me.


Pretty simple project with more peace of mind off road.


Plasti dip prep. I used copy paper and blue tape.


I did 3 coats 2 hours apart. It dries really fast and smooth. Great stuff.


Turned out good!



Black trim will be plast-dipped next. Maybe next days off. The manning brothers are playing today.

After having changed my spark plugs, I remembered the plugs I pulled out of by previous car, a Crown Vic.

Here are the pictures. This is the worst of the plugs, but the other seven were almost as bad. The weird part is that the car ran fantastic with them!

Sorry, my response was in reference to LilOmelet's sliders note showing the holes in his rocker area.

It got mixed up with your post about the sunroof.



I would think that pushing a wire through your sunroof drains would have cleared them and stopped your leaking.
