    Tried to diagnose a transmission issue but the problem never happened, lol. It heads to the shop tomorrow so hopefully their scanner can pick up the problem.

    Started detailing my truck to go get a trade in quote on it, if its the right price ill be getting a dmax. If not its going in the market to see what I can get. Got a lot of Buffing to go. Got the engine bay and under carriage looking brand new

    @Sierraowner5.3 - Thanks!

    Let's see, today I replaced the map lights with (a pair of) Putco 280003W Type T white LED stick bulbs -- which resolved a problem I was having with my previous no-name 5-LED map lights. Next I applied dielectric grease to the auxiliary battery terminals and lugs since I'm done working on them, for now. Last, I fashioned an overhead console faceplate for my toggle switches and air pressure gauge ... and then confirmed a good fit for the set. I'm pleased with the results... but not so much with the 4ish hours of painstaking measurement and dremel time.

    [MENTION=50075]SurrealOne[/MENTION] you know you love it!! It turned out nice. Now lets get some tubing done!! I never thought I would have my tires on before you got your air system done.:sign0020:

    I do really like the panel. Where did you get those switches from?

    @Sierraowner5.3 - Thanks, again!

    @aloxdaddy99 - Check this thread for switch details (probably more than you wanted to know). Also, I -knew- the OBA project would be brutally long, as it covers every discipline in which I have skills and tools ... and a number where I flat-out don't. However, I figured I'd have it done long before your tires as I was beginning to think tires for you were a bit like @nakranij's quest for a unicorn, erm, I mean Duramax.
