Replaced the clockspring steering wheel contact because like an asshole I broke it when I pulled the wheel about a month ago and forgot the unclip the horn harness.

Grabbed the part from the dirtiest, stinkiest Sentra at the yard because I thought it had to come from a non-cruise control vehicle. Shit was real bad, but every other car had CC. Turns out they all have the leads for CC and I dealt with that hell unnecessarily. And then I remembered noting that when I initially swapped the steering wheel last year.

I retrofitted intermittent wipers by grafting the Nissan arm to a Z71 wiper motor with the logic board built in. To connect it, I used the entire Z71 wiring harness. To control it, I used the Z71 steering column grafted to the Nissan steering box.
A few supporting components such as engine, driveline, firewall, dash, and so on, and I've got a SWEET intermittent wiper setup.

The truck was my DD for a month or so. Had to make a run to Memphis in it late last week (~250 miles round trip). Took 2 tanks of gas but otherwise went fine. That old truck doesn't like hills at all in 5th gear at ~70mph. This weekend I finished painting the driver's side rock slider. Now that the E350 is back from the tire shop and I won't be DDing the truck anymore I should be able to weld that guy on.

I made an announcement about our next camping trip in January and upgraded the entertainment and gear. My truck will be used to haul most of the gear, as usual. Nissans are encouraged, and given special consideration. Also as usual.

Got around to replacing the leaky fuel tank on my 96 regular cab.
I noticed that even though there were both 15.9 gallon hardbody tanks, the original one had 2 hose connections on it while the one I purchased had 3.20181114_111825.jpg
I would have taken more and better pictures if it wasn't 28 degrees outside.
