Do I remember correctly that you are planning to use V dub headlights ?

Making templates and patterns is ALWAYS very good time spent. The time spent on that jig will save so much on the work, you won't even have to think about it as you are doing the fenders, it's right there, beautiful.

I went ahead and pulled the motor/pump out and disassembled it. The shaft on the motor did have some pitting, I ran it in a drill and sanded it down to smooth it out some. Checked everything and put it back in. On the first test I see nothing but I didn't see anything before it sat a day or so anyway, we will see.

I installed a couple of performance chips in my '98 C-1500, hoping for some gains for pulling my 25 ft 5th wheel camper. Then I bled the heater core. Getting warmer air now but not what I need. Gonna have to flush with acid. Any recommendations on what to use are appreciated. Thanks, Big Al

Really cleaned up the shop/basement today. I need to find an excuse to mess it up again but for now a cold beer in the swing and one of Sid Chavers videos is a neat way to spend a couple of hours.
