Took the little Red truck to give it a bath and finished it off with a fresh coat of wax. Headed to Tulsa for some great BBQ tomorrow. Weather 70 and sunny.
Wonderful tire evaluation for me HUAW. Went to my winter storage facility to check if my battery was still charged enough to fire since sitting disconnected from last October. Gauge read 12.2 volts after reconnecting and it fired right up. Called my tire gal to see if the new Conti's anrrived for my install appointment next week. They sent a set back that were dated early 2019 as per my request. Can't wait. Hope it's sunny that day.Sure looks like it was a busy day for many Fanatics in Texas, Oklahoma and Missouri! Here in Ohio your International Rally Team spent the day together near Dayton to do some fine tuning of our event schedule, shirt graphic designs and Goodie Bag items to just name a few! By next weekend we will be posting our official event activities for the week so we can get started on our group tickets sales. 😁
Also, the team got their first look at our beautiful Aqua Blur Raffle Truck which I drove to the meeting. I have to admit those Continental tires really do give the truck a much smoother ride then any other set of tires I've had on my trucks! Just a great driving truck!
Team, we need to start taking pictures when we meet. So we got some to post! 🤔
Yeah... But if I replace the ratty bumper with a new one, will it fix my RDM?I too found a ratty rubber bumper in the bottom of the storage compartment on my R shortly after purchase and as I stated in another post, found a similar size one on Steele Rubber Products website and installed that one. Good to go.
This poor truck spent most of its life covered in advertising decals, parked in front of a Sports Bar. Based on the some of the "repairs" I've seen, I'd have to speculate that after the warranty ran out the original owner couldn't find a Shade Tree Mechanic, so took it to a Butcher Shop Mechanic instead. When I discovered the nuts were finger tight I had a fleeting moment of hope.... Hope that a Butcher Shop Mechanic removed the RDM and temporarily fit the cover back in place while waiting to find a replacement. But... No such luck..@Mark E I have had the cover off both my 04 and 05 and the bolts were not tight on either one. So it maybe the factory didn't think they needed to be tight or they had a lazy person doing that job.
The shirt I can understand it getting back there. But the Grape Fruit juice container that's a little strange.
Good Luck on the RDM.
