Pulled the Honeycomb Grille and I am in the process of mod’g it.

I know how you guys like a little drama/guess work so all I have to say is I am cutting the FORD Emblem out.

I will post a pic in the project log when done.

Relocated my OHC temp sensor to the front of the truck so my readout won't be saying its 800 degrees warmer than it really is

I did the same thing last weekend, I hated that when I drove for an extended period of time, the temp would just keep climbing.

new front rotors, painted front axleshafts, greased spindle and wheel bearings, switched wheels to the factory alloys for the summer, greased the steering and ball joint fittings. nice not to have the shaking when stopping now, the rotors i removed were oringinal and had a crack in the front face of both of them.

Maybe use isopropyl but not the q-tips? You just spray it so all the dirt comes off and let it dry by itself... I am still not able to find MAF cleaner...
