After a couple weeks of nice weather ( for Winnipeg / Siberia ) the weather report says it ends today.
Tomorrow will be back to the – 25 ‘s again.
I don’t have the truck anywhere that I can put in a heater, so I figured I better get a few more things done.
Under the dash was a bunch of heater hoses that were all rotten.
Those got replaced.
Got the stereo installed.
Had to create mounting brackets and supports because the dash is nothing more than a plastic shell with a few screws to hold it down.
I didn’t document anything. It wasn’t rocket science though.
Added the all important cup holder.
You really don’t realize how much you use one until you don’t have one.
Added a cell phone mount.
I have an old phone that I use a gps enabled speedometer.
Yeah, it’s dirty. Dirt wipes off……later.
I DID go through hell with the stereos ( yes plural ) themselves.
I had 3 of the fricken things in a bin.
Not a single one would work!!??
Whatever, my bro had a spare one in his pile.
And finally I added the backup camera.
I have it wired so that its always on.
I might change that later.
Just have to move one wire.
This is a ebay jobby wireless unit.
I had it for the first truck, so I am glad I get to finally use it.
Got it for about $40 all in.
I would put a link, but the dealer does not seem to have them listed anymore.
They do however seem to have a lot of sex toys in thier store…. so if you need the link..
