Using a lifted RC that gets 9.5 mpg to drive to work is already an indulgence.  Paying $100 to not be tugging on ratty broken arm rests isnt a big deal.  I guess I could have bought them from that other place for less.  Remind me who that is?

People have paid more for a Tom Brady Patriots jersey, or a beer and two hot dogs at an NHL game, or for one week's insurance after a DUI.  I'm ok with paying $100 for new arm rests that took an extra half hour to make fit.

    Nice repairs on those panels {cool}
    Sometimes it just takes more than the planned amount of effort to make something work.
    At least I know I'm not the only one where that happens  ;D

    I enjoy tinkering, making little improvements here and there.  These are the fun things I enjoy.  Last project involved a lot of rust repair.  Pure drudgery.

    Just now finished rinsing silt out of rockers, hat channels, etc.  Popped six or so rubber plugs from inside edge of rockers and flushed until it ran clear.  Leaving them open to breathe and dry out, then I'll wand in some manner of rust preventive wizardry.  Fluid Film used to be the shizzle, I've heard of something else people seem to like more now.  Fluid Film has a funky farm-fresh smell.  Not sure I'm into that.  Front cab mounts seem to be clean and clear now.

    Is there anything that keeps back seat folded forward?  Seems like mine just wants to flop back down unless I have stuff piled up behind it.

    I suppose I should get after my transfer case leak.  Prior owner had a rebuilt case installed.  Chilly's Law: the probability and volume of leakage increases as the square of amount of RTV used.  The installer really slathered it on, and leaks terribly at junction with the tranny.

    My 89 RC has a seatbelt buckle on the floor to clip into and hold the rear bench seat in place when folded up.

    Berkebile PFC is basically wool wax in a spray can.  Good stuff, I've been undercoating with it for years now.

    Console lid cable is broken.  Matter of time before that results in cracked plastic.  Wouldnt know where to find those washers with the safety cable crimp tab so I used a couple washers, a small aluminum tube spacer and crimp ferrules.

     Received word that one of my Navy buddies died unexpectedly at 52.  There were four of us who were like brothers.  We arrived to the sub near same time so went through progression from NUBs (non-useful bodies) to experienced crewmen together. 

    He's in central PA, I'm in middle TN, and I find myself short on vehicles with fewer than 200k miles built this century.  Glad I busted a move on the RC on Labor Day, though still dont have an exhaust.  So I loaded up some clothes, fluids, tools, Glock, and 870.  What else could I need?

    T-case shifter knob was crap when new, more so after plastic innards cracked to pieces.  I had a broken axe handle, a brass insert that happened to be 3/8-24, some JB Weld, and a woodburning iron.

    Needs some tung oil once epoxy is cured.

    Flipped the bolt according to a photo I found on innerweb, placing nut on inside of frame.  Makes more sense so you cam tighten the nut without fighting the pitman arm.  I did have to pull the pitman to do this work.  Fortunately the guy who worked on it last was considerate and barely snugged the sector nut.  And being a CA/TN truck, a few taps with hammer freed the arm without needing the puller (which requires dropping the front of leaf from shackle to get access).

    I used blue loctite on the formerly-loose bracket bolt and also the sector shaft nut, which I torqued on pretty tight with anti-seize on the splines.  For sure will need the puller next time.

    Also removed the cruise control button pods from the steering wheel.  Switch tops were broken, cruise doesnt seem to work,, and I almost never use it on a vehicle where it does work.  Frankly, I cant believe cruise control is even legal, though I have a libertarian streak so do what lifts your skirt so long as you dont kill my family.

    Steering is now curiously quiet.  No popping when I apply steering pressure.  I had been avoiding sharp turns and rapid reversals.  No more.   Finally enjoying the tight turning radius.

    Another milestone I failed to mention: I now have an exhaust.  Found a different shop that installed a dynomax turbo and piping from Y-pipe back.  He said my Y-pipe was in fine shape, though I couldnt tell through the baked-on red clay.  Havent had an engine warning light since installing.  I suspect having so little pipe behind the O2 sensor could have been the issue.  $160 for that job, which I think was a great price for the quality of work.

    Missing knob on slider for heater control.  Made one from Dorman plastic trim pin and piece of fuel hose.  Cut off end of barbed pin so blade of slider fits between the two remaining halves.

    I'm getting it ready in case Jay Leno gets horny for a REAL vehicle. It's the little details that command top dollar, like $4k. 

    Really, I just enjoy messing with silly stuff like axe handle shift knob and fuel line heater knob.  And when I'm driving it makes me a little bit proud of my old truck despite the sun burned paint and wrinkled drivers door.  Makes it mine, know what I mean?

    Thinking to mount my fancy uptown halon extinguisher somewhere.  This seems like somewhere.  Probably need to fabricate something to back up the sheet metal from underside so vibes dont crack out the holes.

    Its a snug fit because extinguisher rocks out of cradle when you pull the red release pin.

    Extinguisher bolted down.  Backed it with some very thick large diameter washers, which seems plenty stout.

    Had some time, vacation scheduled but not feeling very well.  So made a hub assist handle from hickory axe handle and some brass tube.

    With part of an axe handle laying in the corner, it seems like the perfect solution to every problem.

    I'm bored.  Think I'll drag the RC front carpet from above the garage and section out enough to cover the tranny hump.  That's as much carpet as I'll allow since my floor pans are now in good shape again.

    Didnt make it to the garage attic.   Cleared brush instead (Found a Mickey Mouse watch in the dirt), but while waiting for dawn I dramatically reworked the hub handle.  I calculate 5hp gain and 15% tighter lockup in your differential.   Tactical stippling for better grip in mud, blood, or beer.  Chamfered brass pins for smoother insertion and reduced FTF malfunctions.

    "Why not paracord?"

    SHUT UP, that's why.  Paracord telegraphs your badassness, like open-carry.  Cheap white poly cord is the discrete tactical operator's proven choice.  Subdued white string was good enough for Aunt Bee's clothes line, it's still plenty good in 2020.

    Trivia: Snake Plisken uses hickory axe handle hub lockers.   And so should you.
