How was the flush? Need to do mine this summer, probably overthinking it but seems more challenging than others I’ve done.

Finally picked up and installed sliders on the grocery getter.

I have a "98 and it was straight forward. 20 or so pumps at each caliper twice, started at the rear and moved to the front. Went through two big bottles of dot 3 brake fluid. Best advice I can give is wrap your brake master cylinder in rags around the side, and be very careful when refilling reservoir between bleeds/pumps. Very bad juju to let the brake fluid overflow or spill down the side of this type of master cylinder.

Note to self: consider a removable rear panel on the next drawer box.

After replacing the subwoofer and putting everything back where it goes, one of my drawer slides decided to be difficult. Had to ask my 10yo daughter for help. She said, “good thing this will be mine in a few years. I wouldn’t have helped.”

Fair point sissy. Fair point.

Replaced my battery and the passenger side turn signal that someone broke and drove away. It wasn’t enough damage to justify an insurance claim so I didn’t even bother with a police report. The battery was supposed to be an Optima yellow to, but they’re on backorder with every battery dealer within an hour of where a I live. I settled for the red top, so I still have great vibration resistance with the AGM, and good CCA starting.

Just found out my hood struts are failing, so I’ll have to replace those, but my hiking stick odds working in the meanwhile.

It’s been a busy week since I returned from MI. Heading to CO the end of the week and several thing need attention all at once. The fan bracket bearing failed prompting a timing belt job. PO did a cheapo version and everything was ready to be changed. I’m just grateful I made it home. Repacked wheel bearings. I also got the transfer case out to replace the seals. Not fun and I’m not looking forward to putting it back in, but I need to finish it up tomorrow.

It is very satisfying to start it up and hear it purr. Thanks @OTRAMM for a great video series.

4xs. Well, 3. I had to return one. Waiting for a new one again. Just hopping it won't be six more weeks of rain inside my door as I wait. I taped it up so as to mitigate the inevitable electrical gremlins :alien:.

Today I chopped up my rear bumper with mixed results… I think. Because of my hitch receiver tire carrier it was a real struggle to access the hitch pin and with my up coming RV trip I don’t know if I will have enough clearance to run the tire carrier with the trailer so this is the result.

I’m gonna order up some bumper trim to hide the hack of a job I did cutting straight lines and curves. Cutting this bumper material is a huge pain because it melts and flings scorching hot shards of burning rubber everywhere.

White Knuckle to the rescue. A little primer, paint, and some u bolts. Don’t forget about the brake lines on the inside of the driver side frame.

Installed and carpeted an Air Down Gear Up premier package in the LX.

I replaced the front output shaft seal in the transfer case and got it back in with the help of my son, some creative jacking and a whole heap of God’s blessing. Just plane ran out of time to do the rear, but it’s not leaking (yet) and you can do that one on the truck.

That was not fun…
But now I own a press…
And how on earth have I gone this long without a locking ring pliers. I could have saved lots of cuss words if I knew about them and spent the $15 years ago.

After I turn off the Diff Lock my VSC lights remain on. The only thing I found that works to get them to turn off is turn key off and restart. This is on a 2000 LC. Am I doing something wrong? Hoping this is something simple like a fuse.

A couple of thoughts: Have you run an OBD II scan to see if there are any codes? Also, if there is a TRAC button try pressing that to see if that turns off the lights. The most likely scenario is probably a code of some sort. Any number of things can activate those warning lights. You could also pull the negative battery cable for 20+ minutes and reset the entire vehicle. But I would try to find a solution/code before doing that.
