Mine brought home a tiny lathe today! It's an itty bitty lathe! It'll fit on the table.of.my mill......which is gigantic.







SBJ, whoever uses wire nuts in an vibration application like a car needs to be beaten with those wire nuts! The PO of my Sentra used wire nuts in everything they jacked up electrically in the car including the radiator fans and the stereo (which was wired completely wrong except ground and power).

What I don't get is why someone would go through all the trouble of taking something apart to get to the wiring and not just do it right the first time around. It's lot like it really takes any longer to solder or crimp something versus wire nuts.

Took the truck on a 600+ mile road trip this weekend and we both had a little trip down memory lane.

Paul - The truck you refound in the junk yard was originally orange / brown back in '01? I don't think I've seen that decal on any, was (and still is) a good looking truck.

Yeah the truck in the top pic is the same one I found. It's red, according to the VIN it was AJ4 code. I always wondered about the decals myself. I don't know if the dealer added them or the original owner.

You can see the original color in the interior pics I've taken recently.
