Used Dupli-Color 2-in-1 Scratch Fix to paint over some Whiskey Dent/Scratches...Universal black and actually looked really good, have to wait 24 hours before doing the clear coat but I tried it on a lil portion, looked pretty good...Don't drink, take xanax and drive kids!! Its not worth it!!

Took off the utility bed cap, cleaned out the bed, cleaned out the inside. Crawled underneath and did a full powerwash and lube of the frame. Full synthetic oil change, painted the wheels, re-ran some 4 guage wire for an inverter behind the drivers seat. Washed, claybarred and waxed. And to top it all off, bought a fresh 6 pack of pine scented little trees. Good to be back in the "summer clothes" once again.

removed camper shell, removed bed cover, then detailed the truck bed.
painted over any rubbed spots, then put down some PVC dense foam tape over those spots to prevent rubbing from continuing. then put it all back together and then realized I forgot to take before and after pics and cursed at myself for a bit...

It been in the garage a week, I had to move it over to get the mower out. I washed it before we went on vacation and there is lots of rain heading our way this weekend. I should be driving it again Monday when I get back to work.

Oil change, and 6 turns on the t-bars... not trying to lift it much, just noticed the front was starting to sag down more, think its from the tool box, and sound system.( either that or I got too fat to fit under from the front..) There's atleast another inch of threads to go...

Replaced all the brake shoes/pads, and front rotors. Mine were shot and rotors were glazed over like crazy. It was so bad that my e brake would stop the wheel from turning enough to break the lugs loose.

It is so much better, and it only cost me about 200 for pads, rotors, shoes and drum kit for rear, as well as new rear hub seals and a can of moly grease. Was able to use my lil bros, girlfriends dads garage.
