the switches i used were kinda deep. i actually stuck them in the trim panel thats on the side of the seat. the one that has the seat-back-release on it. theres a good gap behind the trim panel and i stuff the wiring under the seats and ziptie it to the seats so stuff wont get caught and i can slide the seat to and fro without issue.

I stood in my engine bay and wrestled a header.

Should have gotten a video. There was plenty of laughter at my expense.

Had a fever of around 101.5 for several days. Poor old truck has just been stuck in the garage not getting any love for a while. I need a heater for the garage so I can get back out there now that I'm mostly better...

had to cross out the starter terminals to get mine to start. Must have a loose/bad wire or a dying starter.
I'm gonna say probably a wire, but i've got a spare starter here just in case

Poor truck has just been sitting in the driveway, haven't even started it up in 2 weeks. The roads are kind of nasty for a light RWD and I've been out of town. It's probably about time for a cold start.

Anyone remember the post where a guy was looking for connectors to install his Altima fan?

I found a good, cheap source for aftermarket Nissan style connectors:

Are these the same grill clips that the Hardbody uses?
