Had a few ebay bucks from last month and ordered the in chanell wind deflector. Like the looks better kinda cleans up the look.

Getting 10 year old 3M tape off was the biggest pain in the rear I ever had in years.

Installed my inverter, antenna, and HDTV tuner.  :thumbsup:
Now I have 18 channels to chose from on both screens while running around town. (put it on mainly for news and weather while camping)

The outdoor antenna is really good when mounted to the roof rack, and has very little fade (pixelation) when moving.
It even works fairly good when propped up against the back seat.

But I'm gonna have to work on the mount, cause it looks kinda goofy when the antenna is off.

Traced down a bad wire for the BU camera on the 04. It's the video line from the back of the truck to the front. That's a weekday project when I have a Thurs off.

Just did the same thing yesterday! The coax broke where it flexes at the tailgate. I just stripped back the insulation to solder it back together.
Sooooo happy to have my rear cam back... It's been out for over 2 months!

I had my old camera and hooked it up at the end of the extension wire and nothing. Plugged it right into the PAC2 and it worked like a charm. Mine is running through the frame so at least I can use the old one for a pull cord.

Had to work later than I expected today so I didn't get as much done as I wanted to. However I did manage to Rain-X all the exterior glass and clean the interior glass, except the rear, before it became too dark to see. Tomorrow the plans are to wax the body and treat all the seals. Hopefully there will be enough time to do the interior too, we'll see.

Money may not buy happiness, but I'd rather cry in my Avalanche than on a bus.

I added my b'day presents. LED reverse lights and EZ Down tailgate assist. Had to change the reverse lights so they match the lights on the light bar.

Put on the Turtle Wax this afternoon. I didn't want to get any wax on the cladding so I took the time to mask off the edges nearest the paint. Also, who ever was the previous owner must have kept parking under a tree, the roof was a wreck.
A little work and it came out great! Tomorrow, weather providing, I'll be back at it treating all the weatherstripping.

Got the oil changed in the beater. Fixed a bad wire for the BU camera in the 04 along with finally getting my rear door locks to work the way they should and replaced the passenger side mirror glass in it.

I played around with the interior lighting while trying to get the back lighting OK. I used 2 plasmaglow ultraflex. Think I'll wait for the dark to make sure it does not glow too badly
