Certainly, depending on the climatic conditions you live those bed liners can probably be a blessing or a curse. I always park pointing uphill so if it does rain or snow the bed drains out. I try to take the bed liner off ever few years to get tree needles/leaves/dirt out from under it. Other than that, my bed is in great condition considering all the hauling i've done.

Got a few things done so far this weekend.


I previously pulled the bedliner so i could get the tail lights out.
one was smashed, and the other fell apart during removal, so i ordered some cheap replacements.





And when i say cheap, i mean cheap.... these things fit like crap...
but hey, the pair cost less than a single repop, so they'll work for now.

Next step was to get them working. tracing down the harness, i found where the trailer wiring was spliced in. What a mess.

Had to cut the chassis side off and re-solder it.



you can see how corroded the wire is inside (copper is black).
I kept cutting back further trying to find clean copper, but gave up, when i started running out of slack. looks like i may just need to find a replacement for that section of harness.




2 of the wires were broken off at the terminal, but these don't appear to be Deutsch or Delphi style, so i'm not sure where to get new terminals.

I had to bypass the pink/blue and big ground for now.
bottom line, i have tail lights now.

Reverse lights still don't work, so i'll need to check the switch later.

Moved on to the rear wheels.
Jacked up the rear, and i couldn't turn them.


Pulled the drums, and backed off the shoes.
it seems the e-brake was on when it was parked, and is rusted in place, so i'll leave them backed off, until i have parts.





Drivers side shoes (shown) are pretty much gone, passenger side look brand new (thickness).

also noticed the backplates need to be replaced.
the thick flange is rusted through in places.

guess at some point i'll need to pull the axles, and change the bearings/seals anyway.
but again, job for another day.

truck rolls nicely now.

I also got the new blower motor installed, and the dash buttoned back up.


I will say, for cleaning stuff under the dash, i found a toilet brush that did the trick.


Quickie Deluxe Bowl Brush




I just bent the wire together tightly, and it fit in every nook and cranny.




Worked similar to a bottle brush, but the bristles are much stiffer, since it's meant for shittier jobs.

I would like to replace it, but the chances of finding a good one near me is highly unlikely.


Seems like a good candidate for a flat bed.

Today's agenda went out the window, and i put it to work, picking up some stuff from across town.




Not having the passenger seat installed came in handy




during the trip, a few things became evident.

#1 - the speedometer doesn't work
#2 - there are no wipers
#3 - It's gonna take some time to learn this transmission (used to the 6 speeds in my RX8 and Veloster)

#4 - i need something to listen to.


I solved #2 after i got home.
and for #4, i bought the cheapest radio with bluetooth i could find ($16)




It's amazing how small they can be, when you eliminate the cd player
