Ouch. Well, at least you found out the good way. (i.e. Controlled environment.)
Today nothing but driving but yesterday I had washed, dried, waxed, cleaned interior. Which the interior was overdue for some detailing. Then I got brave enough to pull out all the lower dash panels & painted them black. I had a can of SEM satin black which matched the factory black almost perfectly if not dead on. First time using this brand of paint & its great for a rattle can. Thinking for the high traffic areas I'll just swap out for factory black pieces & paint the stuff that won't be touched often. Also painted the A pillers, even the handle on the passanger side just to see how well the paint holds up to my wife using it. I don't have a bfore pic but look at the seats to know what the color used to be like. Now just gotta finish up the rest.
Looks good, man.
I got mine back from the dealer today. The guy said that he wasn't sure what caused my transmission mount to fail, but he did notice the "shifting" feeling that I reported and was shocked that I hadn't lost the drive shaft because of it...I'm just happy it's fixed.
I just got in a few minutes ago (at 1:15am) from changing the front brake rotors and pads on my truck. I was going to do the rears tonight to get them done since they are in worse shape and do the fronts tomorrow, but when I ordered the parts from NAPA over the phone because I couldn't get to the store during business hours, I found that they gave me oil seals instead of dust shields. I guess maybe those sound the same over the phone...
Anyway, off to NAPA tomorrow morning to get new dust shields to replace my rusty ones so I can have working back brakes in good condition tomorrow night before I leave to go camping on Friday.
Finally got around to give Red Dust his spring bath. Still got to clean the interior and put more elbow grease on wheels. Maybe later, lunchtime...

I don't usually like to get on it to much, number one because I don't want to get pulled over, and number two because it makes the gas mileage go way down. But couldn't help myself today when this guy pulled up next to me at a stop light and started reving up his HEMI. He thought he was bad until alls he could see were my tail lights. I slowed down for him and then hit it again just to hurt his feelings.
I like your style, sir. Lol today the c10 got new plugs and wires. Old wires were really bad and were fouling plugs :/
Packed it up with 120 cans of beer and a couple bottles of rum, vodka, and schnapps for the long weekend! Wish I could have put in the crate of firewood I cut up this week, but there is a fire ban this weekend :grrrrrr:
Put nothing on her but I uploaded this picture of her onto my computer...this is from Tuesday night. Now there are only 2 4wds in this picture and my truck is one, can you find the other one that I didn't have to pull out?
Put on a new starter, and a new drivers side door handle at 113,456 mi. Gonna change the oil later today. '99 Burb K1500.
