    Pissed me off.

    The other day I painted my Chevy BowTie black and waited until today to put it on. I went to Wal-Mart for around an hour to do some last minute shopping for food before Christmas. I get done shopping and see my truck and someone must have liked my BowTie so much that they decided they had to have. I couldn't believe it. :grrrrrr:

    :neutral:I guess thats what I get for always backing my truck into parking spots instead of just pulling into them. Am I the only one that does that? I do it so it's easier to spot my truck. :lol:


    Here is a picture of what was my BowTie after I painted it.

    Nice work, BlackSmoke*. It's completely lame that someone swiped it.

    Well currently I reek of old antifreeze but the radiator is out and engines is flushed now just need to install the new radiator and refill.

    Well I finished the work and now no more leaks. Installed new radiator, upper hose, lower hose and thermostat. Then I refilled with Dex-cool. Finished by letting her idle for about 20 mins while I cleaned up the spills from missing the drain pans. Overall a great day.

    I removed the OEM front license plate holder and replaced it with an aftermarket plate holder after modifying it to bolt to the OEM location. The purpose of this was to drop the front license plate down about one inch so that the twin slots in the bumper are not obscured by the front plate, as I plan to install my LED light bars in those slots.

    I installed my new Sylvania Silverstar Ultra headlights. Man are they bright. Also restored my headlight housings, park lights and tail lights.

    This Christmas day I completed the back-end wiring on the environmentally sealed relay block that I have been working on. All she needs now are properly sized (for each application) fuses (5), a positive connection to the +12v stud, a negative connection, and she'll be good to go for 5 relay-based accessories that will draw off the aux battery. (I have 3 in the immediate future: rear LED work lights, front LED light bars (2), and the York compressor clutch.)


    Back Side - back-end wiring complete, +12v stud unconnected:

    Scraped off a couple of inches of snow/ice so I won't have to do it in the morning.

    That's a really nice looking relay block you've got there. I need to get my relay block done up here soon so that I can get my LED off road light behind my grille working and have relays ready for other accessories.

    I did some work on retrofitting the projector into my second fog light. I should hopefully be able to get this one finished up tomorrow and get them aimed so that they're ready to head out skiing the day after. Pictures to come once this one is done and they're both on the truck.

    [MENTION=50075]SurrealOne[/MENTION] as always good job

    last week I was able to give the truck a proper bath (aka mud puddles ;)). Played in the snow some too.

    i got the on board compressor and gauge for my airbags. I didn't have any power wire to extend the supplied harness so it will be finished Sunday when I can get some. Will put up a thread with pics after I finish.

    I used up a $50 dollar gift card buying parts for the truck.

    I finished the second projector fog light. Now I'm just waiting for the silicone to dry so I can get it mounted and aimed tomorrow morning before I leave to go skiing.

    Also, I don't think I posted this the other day when I found it, but I scanned my Duramax to see why the check engine light is sometimes coming on. The code I got was P0650, which turns on the check engine light to tell you the check engine light isn't working properly. I thought that was ironic... :neutral:

    Thanks. It beats having relays all over the engine compartment. :)

    Installed the second projector fog light. Now I just need to go aim them.

    And, while I was under the truck, I found an oil leak from one of the oil cooler lines under the truck. I guess I have to fix that soon.

    Received the copper tubing I ordered, today. I was excited as I'd get to start plumbing the air system, this weekend, Sadly, the morons sent me 3/8" tubing instead of the 1/2" tubing that I ordered, so now it has to go back AND I don't get to begin the plumbing this weekend.
    :grrrrrr:

    That blows! (pardon the pun).
    I ordered the rest of my cable and lugs for my big three upgrade and fuse power upgrade. Sadly it won't be in until next week.

    Yes it does! Plus, it looks really clean.

    I would call them and tell them how bad they suck. Maybe they will step up and overnight the correct tube to you.
