Cannot see pictures here. If I right click for a new tab, I get a server error. If I post a response, I get the same server error, but the post does take.

Started applying the markings today, stars on front, back, doors and bridge weight on the door. Tried the hood star but had major fail with bubbles galore, needed a second hand and will have to be a do over.

Air cleaners. I did not have much to choose from the trucks I had, only one under hood that was in poor condition. I purchased a NOS under hood kit as I thought it looked more "Military". After installing it the first thing I noticed is that it was right in your face when trying to do anything under the hood, I quickly hated it. So I purchased a NOS first type air cleaner from Saturn Surplus, much cleaner and more room to work around.

No horn. So today I installed the new horn contact switch and no horn. I pulled the steering wheel, verified I had continuity with the contact ring and #25 wire at the horn, shows good. Next I pulled the white plastic bearing holder and I'm glad I did as the bearing was full of sandblasting sand and crunchy, flushed/cleaned and re greased the bearing and cleaned the contact ring and connection, re assembled. Then I figured out the horn is getting it's ground connection through the steering shaft, checked and no continuity from the steering shaft to ground. Determined that the rag joint connection was preventing ground so I pulled one of the rag joint bolts and the pinch bolt on the box side, cleaned them and added a ground strap between the two for a solid ground, horn fixed.

I'm sure it looks great, but until the site gets fix no one can see the embedded pics. Maybe try linking some from a free image hosting site. I use Imgur.com to post all my pics here and it seems to work quite well.

Here is one from the other day.

I think I have found the site issue. Go to the Website questions forum and review my post.

I can see everyone's pictures with Firefox browser I'm using.

Front shock bushings. I replaced the front shock bushings today, found Energy Suspension 9.8113G polyurethane were a perfect match to the originals.
