sdeeter19555 I also made lower kick panels for the doors from some leftover aluminum diamond plate, this will make those steel door panels work (the aluminum covers the speaker and vent holes)...

This truck had snaps on the grill, so I ordered some snaps, drilled and installed them in some ABS sheet, and snapped them on. Truck actually runs warmer now!

sdeeter19555 I scored a set of steel 70s door panels...not bad for $20. No more plastic...

sdeeter19555 I installed that Dodge Connection steering brace, that was fairly straight forward short their instructions are way off for a w250 (4x4). Bolts are 9/16" and 7/16"...no drilling was required on my w250.

Truck is sidelined right now, I'm trying to salvage the turn signal lever "stalk" that is broken. I tried to remove it per FSM instructions, but to no avail. I did determine it is broken into three pieces: stalk, upper screw tab, lower screw tab. I used some superglue to get the pieces fitted. I then cut a piece of heavy sheet metal and bent it into an "L", drilled a hole for the screw, put a curve in it to match the stalk, and installed it under a screw. I then mixed up some JB Weld and epoxied that whole thing together (stalk, metal brace, base). I need to mix a touch more epoxy tonight, I am going to put a brace between the stalk and the metal switch to keep the stalk from rocking back when using the dimmer.

Hopefully this will limp me along for a while...once this dies, I will convert to heavy duty toggle switches for the turn signals and the wipers, and put the dimmer on the floor.

I never considered the heat factor, the gassers wouldn't have that issue (this is the first external VR I've had in many years). I may move it later this spring when the weather breaks.

sdeeter19555 I also did this little modification.

I had noticed water off the hood drained onto the voltage regulator and I have an old voltage regulator (from an older truck) that is swelled because it started to rust underneath because it was getting wet.

It is simply a piece of oil jug pinched between the cowl and cab, held in place by that single screw. You can see the water marks tracing down that cover already.

Cost - zero

The fuel screw has the hat on it yet, but I'm sure this pump has been gone through based on the red tamper-evident marks.

Like I said, normal driving it is clean and not even a haze. If I stomp on it, it gives a puff of smoke and cleans right up because the converter is non-lockup. It just revs up and the trans has to play catch-up!

I wouldn't have even guessed the pin was changed because of the way it runs...I knew the top had been opened at some point, but I figured it was a stock pin, just rotated.
