Title: What did you do to your 355 today??
Post by: charlie v on October 28, 2013, 08:28:38 PM
Adjusted the headlights because they were a little high.  Easy 2 minute job.  Did 1 full turn lower - will see how that is for on coming traffic.  I installed those 1 up aftermarket bulbs - silverstar I believe.  I know, these aren't the HID or LED lights of a real "upgrade".  However, they work for me.   :idk:

Did a battery cover delete.  Hey, need to reduce weight where I can.   ;)  I'll take the risk of the battery fumes blowing up.

Also decided to pop the grill off to paint the AC, rad support, etc. black so it blends in better behind the grill.  Of course, broke a couple of the top retainer clips.  They are somewhat chicken shit little things aren't they.  Another trip to Lordco I guess.  Looks better - hides the crap behind the grill.  I will snap a better picture in the light with the grill on.

Here is a horrible cell picture - low light at dusk.

Vaccuumed the interior and washed the exterior for the first time in a couple of weeks. It was a short work day and a dirty truck makes a bad first impression on customers.

Picture with grill on.  Looks better without seeing the stuff behind it.  Need to paint the bowtie I think - not sure what colour??

Tried to post this reply but overloaded with pics the last time.

Being retired has its advantages - got to play with the Colorado again today.  Although, I am still trying to get comfortable with retirement.  If my back was better I would be doing my home handyman thing.  Can't stand it if I'm not busy doing something.

So - back to this fun truck stuff.  Had to check the rear brakes.  They were +- 30% last Spring.  Same still after some 15,000 kms.  Good til next year I say.

While the wheels were off, needed to paint the rear drums so they look better behind the wheels.  Wanted to keep the paint off the wheel studs so they torque properly.  Got into one of those "while you are there" moments and gave the frame rails and rear leafs a quick spray.  The rusty bits looked like hell - better now.

Then it was on to the rear taillights.  They both have moisture in them.  Needed to find the leak.  Once off I covered 2 of the socket holes with my fingers and then wrapped my lips around the 3rd - no comments please.  With a little pressure I could immediately feel the leaks along the outside seam of the assembly.  Thanks to Steve for the suggestion - a little masking tape and filled the seam gap with clear silicon.  I'll let this dry overnight and pop them back in tomorrow morning.  I also cleaned the lamp socket gaskets and put a film of dielectric grease on the gaskets for a better seal.  Used an old toothbrush to make a clean job.

That was about it for today - back is a little sore now.  But, had fun......Yahoo!!!

  Most people will probably say black. I say pick an accent color for your truck and use it on more than just the bow tie. PS I've always liked silver with red trim.

I did the same thing last time I set out to wax my truck, ended up throwing some paint on my frame, even though my 2008 was not looking too horrible.

Red??  I have some in the shop.  What the hell - I might try that and see what it looks like.  Can always repaint another colour.  LOL.  What else should I paint red???  Hmmmmm, my wheel centre caps have this ugly MB logo on them.  Steve, you have me on a roll here.

I was thinking maybe painting all the divots on your wheels red, Subtle but still noticeable. Before painting anything lay it out in tape and see if you like or not.

Thought about a red bowtie last night and this morning.  But, the image of Rudolph kept coming to mind.

Picked up the little grill clips at the stealership this morning - only $1.35 each.  Got a couple extras because spares are good.  Was going to put them in and I thought, "What the hell - the bowtie needs to be painted". 

With the bowtie in hand I was rummaging through the paint cans in the shop.  Blue, red, silver, black, white, yellow - all got a No.  And then, there it was - a can of Chevrolet Orange.  Perfect!!  Reminds me of my Chevy small block days - never owned one, but did a bunch of wrenching on them.

So - a pop of colour on the boring Silver Birch.  I kinda like it.

Swapped on the winter rims/tires, also checked rear brake shoes while I had the rims off.

Really want to get the 17" Sierra's, the ZQ8's kinda look bland and small to me. Too bad they're priced stupidly high around here, one day...

I'm holding off on getting my Grabbers mounted, just because I want to use as much life as possible from these tires, and the fact I'm low on funds right now.

I'm not suggesting it was a bad move to put the winter tires on.  When it gets cold, they provide better grip.

I pulled a screw out of my tire yesterday. Thankfully, I don't think it made it past the tread.

Haha awsome, I fill up everytime with Supreme or Super supreme (94 octane) at Chevron.  At one point I was paying $1.65 litre :o
$20 doesn't shut my gas light off in the Sierra lol. Thankfully Costco gas bar opened up in town and dropped fuel by 30 cents.
I sure can notice a difference between regular and supreme.

Another work day out in West Vancouver. All the leaves on those picturesque roadways are turning to mush so now I've effectively applied a gradient layer of brown mush from the bottom edge upwards on the sides of the truck fading into the dirty blue painted finish about half way up the doors.
If it wasn't destructive to the finish I might "leaf" it on for a while as it doesn't look so bad. But first hose i can get near sprays it away. Before it starts to rot any further.

I Installed, White Projector LED's into the reverse lights, DRL Mod, HID's in the Low beams, LED's in Front Turn/Park Light (the resistor) and LED's in the rear Licence plate lights.

It was a spoil my 355 day today. Oil change, new spark plugs, new air filter, cleaned the maf sensor and the throttle body wich was much needed! Cleaned the air box too. Made quite the difference after!

Cleaned up my wiring and added a capacitor. Still just running 10awg wire to the block, but I don't push it hard anyway.

I am confused a to why you would run #10  to the splitter and then a #4 or 8 to the cap then back to the amp.

I had leaky taillights that accumulated water.  I thought I had both sealed, but the right one continued to leak.  I sealed up the entire perimeter with silicon seal.  Today, I found more water inside the taillight assembly.  I am thinking it might be resigual moisture so I pulled the thing off and have a small fan blowing air through out of the lamp holes.  Trying to dry up the inside of the assembly.  I'll leave this blowing overnight and see what I have in the morning.

Used the truck to go get a new window from the wreckers for the new winter beater the roommate has bought to use while the caliber stays parked for the winter. '93 s10 blazer, 2 door square body. 400 bucks, runs great. Guy was selling it because he lost the keys and broke the window trying to get in lol

While out in the truck, I spotted a crack in my driver door skin... Now I get to bring it to the dealer on thurs for them to "determine" if it's warranty or not. Well it better be. Truck is only 2 yrs old and the windows were tinted from day one, so it wasn't sunlight on it lol

I've noticed that too- the truck heats up fast. Probably 'cause its doesn't have a rear seat area to heat.
Other than that, no work on the truck today: trying to locate some mesh or something to block off the current location of the fogs.

Took the truck to the stealership. Apparently they've seen cracks in the door skins on these trucks before. "Somethin to do with the cold I guess" was the reason given haha but it's being replaced under warranty. The thing that sucks tho, is anytime I need interior parts, I have to make sure the dealership doesn't just order it off the vin, as for some random reason my vin says my interior is pewter, not black, like it actually is. Made that mistake once already lol

Drained and flushed the cooling system today.  Put in a jug of Prestone antifreeze.  I was surprised there isn't a petcock on the rad to drain the system.  Yanking the rad hose off is a truly little old school.  I was covered in the stuff.   >:(   

Wanted to do some preventive work on the infamous heater blower electrics.  Improved the ground connection on the relay.  Then pulled the connector off the blower assembly - cleaned and a little dielectric grease on the connections.  WTF - now the damn blower only works on 4.  I will check it out perhaps tomorrow.  I haven't cleaned the shop enough to get the truck inside.  Right now it is cold and raining sideways out there - ahhhhh no thanks.

Went out and washed the truck to only get it full of snow again. At least all the road grime is off. Also discovered my right headlight is getting condensation in it somehow. Gonna pull it off tonight and put it by my heater to dry it out and seal it up with silicone after. Might be from the HID's I got from Clutch not sealing properly too.

My brake pads hardly look any different than they did 40,000km ago. Tons of life left after 70,000km. They might be able to go twice that since I drive mostly highway.

also went to go put winters on and found out my wheel bearing is shot on my driver side front. not happy about that at all! AND when taking fan off for rad height adjustment realise that my water pump needs replacing. im dumping toooo much money on this truck right now!

I am confused a to why you would run #10  to the splitter and then a #4 or 8 to the cap then back to the amp.

Just didn't see the need as I won't be running it very hard. When I pushed as much as I could handle in the truck I was pulled 12 amps and 10 gauge is good for 40amps so itd be overkill.

I bought the cap off a friend and he had a bunch of 8gauge with it so I just used that for the splitter and cap as it was really flexible wire. Its been 2 weeks now and no issues :D

Just wanted to point out that your cap is hooked up wrong. And no need for the distribution block.

The positive coming from the battery should go directly to the positive of the cap the from the cap to the amp.

And then your ground from chassis to the cap. And then cap to amp.

Post by: bass_junky on November 17, 2013, 07:45:42 PM
I was going to say something Like that, But what I was going to say was. There is absolutely no reason for what looks like a ground from the engine bay. All of the grounds should be at there own ground points on the chassis.

Really all you do, is put the power wire from the battery and the positive wire from you amp on the positive terminal on your cap. Anyways the way it is done just looks wrong too me, but it is not my truck.

Post by: Brian10161 on November 18, 2013, 09:12:45 AM
Doesn't make a difference if I goto the cap first or the distribution block. The power will get pulled when its needed. And the separate grounding points doesn't make a difference either, its all ground. No different than having a gigantic metal bar used as a ground, there's no potential difference between the separate parts. I ran a separate ground so I don't have to beef up the grounding at the battery as well. These trucks are notorious for bad grounds, so figured I'd be wiser to do this way.

A capacitor is essentially a high rate of charge/discharge battery. Its just there to absorb the current fluctuations. Whatever can supply the power, will. I work on high voltage electrical systems at work with electric motors and capacitors so its all pretty basic knowledge. I checked the current draw from the battery with a DC ammeter before and after.

Current before would fluctuate quite drastically and now with the cap, its evened out quite a bit. At least its dropped the fluctuations below what my meter can detect. 

To each his own, its all working correctly and the wiring is tidy. So I'm happy with it.

Hahah, did the same thing over the weekend.  Cleaned the MAF and Throttle body and ran seafoam.  I did notice a difference in throttle response. 

On a side note, I ran the seafoam in my garage and after the 5-10 minutes when I started my truck again, i just backed the tail end of it outside the garage door.....you could barely see my neighbors houses.....lol.  Holy white smoke.

Thinking about starting my winter truck project- my custom centre console. Whats the best wood for this? To cover by screw holes, should I use fibreglass, or something else? Finally- I want to integrate a GPS unit and an ultra-guage in the console- hows the best way to fasten the units to the console so I'd still have the ability to remove them if I wanted to?

Id recommend 5/8 MDF. Very easy to work with. Then use fibreglass on the top to shap it. You could little pockets the same size as the gps and ultra guage, then fill in the back but drill out a hole for the power wires to units. Then fasten with velcro so its easy to remove. The tighter fit you make it, the better it will look.

Nice meats!

Going with a slightly different direction with my foglight relocate (doing that tomorrow!). I'm using corroplast to cover up the whole from inside the bumper, and I cut and painted some lighting diffuser panels (above) that will be put overtop to make it look like a "grille" in that location.

I got around to paint my frame flat black as most of it is showing now with 3" lift.

Speaking of lift - finally got around to uploading pics... The one infront of the redneck garage is before and the one infront of house is after.

I also replaced front bumper while putting lift in.

Big Thanks to Clutch for the great deal!

Made a winter front from corrugated plastic. Nothing special, just needs to serve its purpose. Painted it black so it doesn't stick out (it's white plastic). When I was doing highway driving it helped out a lot getting warm and staying warm.

Does your truck actually not stay at temp on the highway? I'm happy to have more cold air because my truck was over heating in the summer on the highway lol

That and in my limited mechanical instruction in autobody, we were taught to never cover radiators, as it'll do more long term damage, than the short term benefits they provide.

Though that corroplast cover does look badass.

 Be careful with stop and go traffic. Most of the big rigs have flaps that they can open up on their rad covers so they don't overheat in city traffic. Right now the weather channel is showing only -8. you shouldn't need a rad cover yet. I'm wondering if your thermostat might be stuck open??

Started this project yesterday around dinner time and worked on it till 4am lol it was a fun friday night! Just finished installing now. Heres some super shitty cell pics. The sun came out and made it glare a lot.

This isnt the best paint job in the world. It was my first time and I was spraying outside then bringing inside all night in and out, in and out etc. I didnt realise the clear came out as thick as it does and i got a few minor drips.

I dont have the link but there was a thread and the guy just straight spray painted it - DOESNT WORK! the moldex repels the paint. Lucky I had an extra of the first part I tackled. Went and bought some heavy duty wax and grease cleaner and it made the paint stick really nice. ALTHOUGH some random spots do have some small round grey spots (pin hole size) - I must have not cleaned the area so well.

All and all i think it looks awesome. Way better than the grey! The minor defects you dont notice unless you really stare at it.

I've never had a problem with over heating having a winter front like this nor does it have problems warming up, its just that when I start driving in the morning it warms up faster. It had a better effect when I was doing more highway driving and it was -20 (took me about a mile and half with it and 2-4 without) but I thought I'd give it a try here in the city. Ill probably cut a few holes in it but it still has the valence to get air from, I didn't cover it completely. If it has any problems I'll remove it but I just wanted to experiment with city driving.

Im really shocked that GM wanted $400 for ONE hub with sensor. NAPA  wanted 280 before taxes. Rock auto has super cheap parts!

Where do you get your stuff shipped?  Some receiver service, or a private contact (buddy / family)?

The only time I ordered from Rock Auto, I had it shipped straight to my door.  Shipping was reasonable, and there were no extra fees or duties, but it was just 5 wiper blades....

Doubt it. Put that shock in when I installed the lift back in February/March. Rancho is crap when it comes to honouring warranties.

Changed the oil/filter.  Gave her a good wash before the temps drop with the Artic outflow happening this week.  Also washed up the stock rims - getting winters on Friday.  Hopefully the snow holds off until then.

Boosted a diesel pump with my new battery. Which gave me a new project for the spring: clean up my wiring.

I need to clean mine up.

2 sets of wiring for heated seats, stereo wire, rap wire, fog light wire,  all pulling power right from the battery.

I plan on installing a marine fusebox and moving all my accessories to it.

The weather was complete shit yesterday and I hit some black ice on the way home from work. I went into the ditch and hit a snow bank. I got out with 4x4 but noticed I cracked my lower front bumper valence right around where the tow hook mounts are on the driver's side, where my bullmax bar bolts up to, so I think I will try JB welding it up and touching it up with paint to match.

The crack goes from the inside center hole by the tow hook mount, then propagates outwards on the front of the plastic valence, almost to where it goes into that 45 degree angle into the fog light hole. Maybe 6" long or so. I didn't take any pics, I could after I try to fix it tonight.

The weather was complete shit yesterday and I hit some black ice on the way home from work. I went into the ditch and hit a snow bank. I got out with 4x4 but noticed I cracked my lower front bumper valence right around where the tow hook mounts are on the driver's side, where my bullmax bar bolts up to, so I think I will try JB welding it up and touching it up with paint to match.

The crack goes from the inside center hole by the tow hook mount, then propagates outwards on the front of the plastic valence, almost to where it goes into that 45 degree angle into the fog light hole. Maybe 6" long or so. I didn't take any pics, I could after I try to fix it tonight.

Well the JB Weld didn't work. I put a heater by it for several hours while it cured but it didn't hold. So my only other option was to trim it so that I removed the crack while not making it look like shit, of course I gotta do it to both sides so it looks symmetrical. So this is what I ended up doing, I guess ill leave my tow hooks on all the time now cuz they kinda cover it up a lil bit.

On the bright side, now I have easy access to the mounting bolts for my bullmaxx bar, so I don't have to remove my front bumper anymore if I ever have to take it off. Maybe this spring/summer I will look around for a replacement bumper valence.

Brought home the winter tires I picked up in the States this weekend.  Went with my dearest Debbie for a weekend in Seattle.  Just in time - weatherman says we will have snow Tuesday.

Decided to go with 235/75 x 15 mounted on the stock aluminum rims.  A little undersized, but I wanted a narrower tire for more pounds per square inch to cut through the slop we call snow here on the wet coast.  Here we may run winters for maybe 3 months.

I have the tool box sitting from front to back, up against the drivers side wheel well, with a ratchet strap from the bottom front hook to the bottom back hook. It's not the most solid but I would rather have that then be stuck with out my booster cables, tow straps etc.

Super easy. I should make a how to if there isn't one on here already.

1) turn the key in the ignition to LOCK.
2) press and hold both the lock and unlock buttons on the fob. The screen in your truck will light up and display the current mode it is in.
3) Press and hold the little reset stem on your dash for a couple seconds and it will go to the next setting.
4)press once to select setting and the screen will shut off
congrats your done!

Settings:
RFA 1 (default): This mode flashes the parking lamps
when you press the lock or unlock buttons on the
remote keyless entry transmitter.
RFA 2: This mode flashes the parking lamps and
sounds the horn when you press the lock button on the
remote keyless entry transmitter. This mode also
flashes the parking lamps when you press the unlock
button on the remote keyless entry transmitter.
RFA 3: This mode flashes the parking lamps and
sounds the horn when you press the lock or unlock
buttons on the remote keyless entry transmitter.
RFA 4: This mode disables remote keyless entry
feedback. There will be no feedback when you press
the lock or unlock buttons on the remote keyless
entry transmitter.

Got the snow tires/wheels on today - while the snow was falling.  The picture is proof we do get snow on the wet coast.  The tires are dinky looking in the wheel wells. 

This peed me right off - snapped one of the front wheel studs off.  The air was blue.  The damn lug nut was cross threaded.  This would have been from when the new wheels were installed by the tire shop earlier this year.  Grrrrrrr.   

Will need to check how to repair - likely not a quick replacement with the hub staying on.  Even more Grrrrrr.

Fixed my airbag light. When I pulled out my old door, I took the harness out as well thinking I would need to reinstall it with the new door. Got to the new door and it came with everything. So doing a bit of part searching online I found out the rear extended cab door harness is the same for both sides (double score). So I just took drivers side harness out and put in my old/passenger side harness. Voila! No more airbag light!

Extended cab problems.

Well yes, the one night i forgot to plug in, it reached -35 and probably froze the acid in the batt( if possible, just a guess) I then used my dads truck to boost it but one of the clamps slipped off and made a gynormous spark. Lol so im luck it was just fuses that blew instead of replacing wrecked parks like my alternator and stereo setup.

Rm11x - just need the harness, got mine for 18$ locally. Will need to run a separate 12v switched wire which is fairly easy.

Edit : the harness I bought doesn't keep door chimes. Didn't want to spend the extra money for the upgraded harness that will keep on star, door chimes etc.

Yeah, I hate the door chime so to me, I would love to have it disabled and I don't have ONSTAR so if I buy a deck, do i just swap a harness and that's it.  I always thought there was some bypass or other stuff I needed to do....

Really easy to install, maybe a little over an hour to do, depending on the amount of beer you have

Nope just the aftermarket harness, and antenna adapter, splice her in and plug it in. Wires are all color coded so it's just yellow to yellow etc. Then run the red wire to a switched 12v with a fuse then your done.

If you ended up with a double din headunit, then you need to bypass the ebrake.

If the double din has dvd functionality and you want to use it during driving you have to disable some sensor or something with the e brake I believe..correct me if I'm wrong lol I've never owned one with dvd function on it so I'm not sure.

Should be just a wire behind the deck somewhere. If it's labeled then that makes your job easier.  Just cut the wire and tape the ends

Double din is twice the thickness yes. Usually touchscreen. Some have a large display and lots of buttons instead of the touch screen feature too. Anyway, what i mean by "bypassing the e-brake" is the double din head units usually have a light green wire on the harness that comes with the unit its self . So what you want to do is basically trick the headunit into thinking the ebrake is on. The way you would do that is, to take that green wire on the harness of the headunit, and run it to one side of a switch then run another wire from the other side of the switch to a metal screw to ground it.

I have had trouble with my tailgate lock getting stuck in the past. Had to open it up today to put  weight in the bed and it was stuck. Started playing with it, poking screwdrivers under the handle (how i opened it last time) for a good 15-20 min until I finally realized my tonneau cover was frozen to the top of the tailgate  :doh pried them apart and it opened no problem haha

So you took the green wire or whatever color it is to a switch then you grounded the second wire.  ???

I'm pretty sure he means connect the green wire to a switch and then wire the other connector on the switch to the ground. Basically the green wire to a ground with a switch spliced in. I was watching some videos on it today.

Ok , so instead of this ??? I should have said, Why. 

It seems like a lot of extra work just to ground your wire.  The only reason why they say go to the ebrake is so that you are not able to watch your video's while you are driving. Ebrake has to be engaged for the wire to be grounded. This is for safety reasons.

Seeing as I was in no mood to work outside I today I took the whole handle out and brought it inside. I had my old handle to compare with which made it easier. Basically the spring you see in the middle of both pictures had come off the tab and didn't allow the proper action.

On the positive - I enjoy driving the truck and find it extremely useful.  It does what I need it to do - when it works.  No immediate plans on selling it. 

On the negative - the more I work on and understand about this truck, the more I realize that the GM boys have built a POS in some areas.  There are components that are the cheapest/lowest quality parts I have ever seen.  Wow - an eye opener!!!!

get yourself a harness and pigtail and here's the link ;

It reads all the info from your obd2 port. And on top of that will read codes and tell you what the code is and then allow you to clear the code.

I had a Scangauge 2 in there but decided to upgrade to this. Also with this you can expanded it to add different sensors down the road. And a back up camera.

Never heard of that company before. Nothing a quick google search can't fix though! Looks handy and I'd be interested providing it was easy to update for larger tire sizes/etc.

One of the main reasons I don't use my ultragauge is due to the fact that it's a pain to calibrate for bigger tire sizes. I just keep it around so I can clear the occasional P0420 code i'm getting my exhaust.

the 914's. I got ones that are way brighter then the ones I had on hand but they were to long to fit into the license plate sockets. I put them under the dash and put the ones I had under my dash in the license plate sockets.

Said "f-it" and ordered parts.

ACDELCO   290297 Axle Shaft Seal
ACDELCO   15176997 ABS Wheel Speed Sensor
ACDELCO   88964475 CV Half Shaft Assembly
ACDELCO   FW348 Wheel Bearing & Hub Assembly

Might not be needed, but that passenger hub is still new circa 2006. Considering the drivers side CV axle was over torqued, my passenger might be okay or might be crap. Either way, ordered a new one. $550 shipped to my door customs free; can't complain. Just gotta get my door painted and my truck will be good again.

"Said "f-it" and ordered parts."

So you decided that staying as part of this community was worth a bit of frustration then, eh ?
Well thanks. It makes us all warm and fuzzy to know we are worth it. :naughty:

And if  that had nothing to do with it then shut up and leave the moment as it is !  :laugh:

I managed to give my 355 a good washing making sure to spray out all points underneath to remove as much road grime and salt infused dirt so it doesn't get to eat away at the non-visible sides of the metalwork. Someday I need to come up with a suitable tire carrier for the spare so it doesn't trap so much crap underneath where it is now.
I might just settle for a front mounted one like on my Dad's truck when I was a kid. Right in the middle of the grillwork over the bumper. Easy to get at and maintain. Don't know how much of a problem it might make for air cooling behind it though. My grill is only half of what that old Ford was so I would be seriously limiting the direct blow through effect. Hmmmmmmmm.

Installed my DDM hid's today. I ordered 4500k but for some reason the left one has a bit of a blue tint to it while the right light if more of a crisp pure white. I installed the left first and turned it on a few times to test it worked and then put in the right one and only turned them on for a few second to check if that one worked.

I'm hoping that they are different because they were not at full power/warmed up yet. I only had the second one on for 15-20 seconds. I'm going to go for a drive tonight and see if they become the same after they have been on for some time.

Bought some stuff for the heavy duty battery terminal install. Pulled the drivers side taillight and fixed the goofy bulb issues. Also spliced in a wire i'll be using later for a secret project.

I'm not where I usually am right now- So leave a message!

Use a good degreaser before painting.  Lacquer thinner is my fav, but use quality nitrile gloves - the stuff will eat your skin.  Likely punches holes in the ozone layer too.

I washed in lacquer thinner every day for years...don't have any natural oils in my hands anymore either.
Actually works out pretty good handling glass as I don't leave prints or smears on it.

Boss Phantom 10" subs. They are a shallow mount single voice coil. Only about $35/each and they sound incredible for the price. You can read some reviews on amazon, overwhelming consensus that these are a great value.

The truck has had a CEL for a few days. This morn I scanned it and came back with P0449 (evap solenoid, been going on and off for awhile, i'll fix that one day) and P0366 (camshaft position sensor). Cleared them and i'll see if it comes back tomorrow, the truck seems to be running fine though. Although it should be covered by powertrain warranty if it has gone kaput.

Slid some stainless steel flatbar off my rack and knocked the driver's side mirror face off. Other than a bit of a carved scratch in it there was no major damage and now I know how they are assembled and how much open space is inside one. Then I popped the thing back together, tied the load down and drove home.
I hate when other people throw things on my rack and don't tell me !

Does Chevy still sell Colorados? I never saw one while I was there, new or used!

Installed HID's in my low beams today. Couldnt get the high beams to work properly. Is 55w a piece for highs and lows with the hi/lo mod to much for these trucks to handle?  I could get one to work, then the other wouldnt turn on at all or just blow the 10 fuse for the RHD lights. Or vise versa.

Do the ballasts say how much current they draw at startup? I'd say that 55W high and low are too much.

so should i exchange the 2 high beam ballasts for 35w ones? Do the lows at 35w and highs at 55w?
Title: Re: What did you do to your 355 today??
Post by: AJ1794 on January 18, 2014, 07:50:16 PM
If you haven't tried already I'd let the low beams warm up fully then try put the high beams on. If it still blows a fuse then you'll have to probably exchange the ballasts.

That looks like a nice deck Muskoka.

I took my truck in to get my e-test this afternoon and I passed! My check engine light decided to shut itself off a few days ago and while the O2 system wasn't reset for some reason, and I had 2 codes that the truck cleared - evap leak (was in background or something so didn't light up CEL) and camshaft sensor (he said code resolved itself) I passed. I'm eager to see if it stays off.

A diesel cruze would be a nice commuter.

Installed v2 switchbacks just now. They are brighter (so they match the inner 3157's better)  and all the leds change colour with this revision. The v1 style has 2 separate rows, one for amber and one for white. I like it better and now just gotta sell the v1's.

You know, that gritty sandy grey-brown texture that looks horrible, makes your lights dimmer, and somehow leaves light streaks all over your dark clothes when you swear you weren't anywhere near that fender so it couldn't have been you that brushed into it !
As my paint is notable scratched all over I don't worry too much about minor issues in the clearcoat BUT getting that corrosive crap off the underside and out of the wheelwells is always a top priority.
I keep thinking about how else to have a full size spare along without having it hold all that gunk underneath. I use the bed/box all the time with loads hanging out so it can't go there...I don't always have the rack on so nothing up top will work...leaves me with the old full size option of mounting it in front of the grill which would put it in front of auxilary offroad lights...damn...what else is there ?

Just read the how-to on dismantling the dash on the nation. Why does it seem like everything thats awesome needs a lot of work?

Seriously considering taking off the bezels (they need to be repainted anyways) and spending a few hours masking everything off and dipping it in place.
I'll think about it.

Focus is small repair/maintenance.  However, just finished a kitchen facelift - counter, backsplash, sink and taps.  Next week is 80 feet of gas line for a large BBQ.  These are bigger than I really want, but they are both for people I know.  Kind of helping out.

The guy sorting mail at the depot was a goof and screwed up the labels. Even though I had my delivery ticket they couldn't find the item, and even when I showed up at the post office I still ran into issues with one lady who wouldn't release the package since it didn't match up. Another lady had to call the depot and use some sort of internal parcel code to find my name and then release the item they had in the back all along.

She basically said if the item is shown to have been transferred to the place of pickup but they have no clue where it is; Tell them to look up your name specifically to find more info (why they don't do this to being with when I hand them my ID is another story).

Tonight the entry is : I drove my truck.
This may not seem like much of a disclosure to most of you but if I were to add, "It was a dark and stormy night"...
Or to put it another way, as I was leaving North Surrey tonight around 6-ish I couldn't help but keep looking at my rear view mirrors at how much of the total area behind me was pitch black. Major power outage. Five minutes drive away and I still couldn't make out how far it went.
Under the circumstances I should have been spending more time looking forward with the heavy mix of snow and rain driving at me reducing visibility. The first time I've ever witnissed entire puddles being picked up by the wind and blow sideways making a wall of water suddenly blot out everything in front of you.
And the wind...almost blew me out of my lane and into the one next to me. Sudden choppy gusts of intense magnitude.

It was a blast driving in it ! Almost qualifies as making driving "fun" again.
Except for the other losers who can't/don't/won't drive in it while out there.
Morons ! With a capital "M".

EDIT: I bought LEDS from the Grafx Shop and for some reason I thought it said "pair". I Ordered two thinking they were pairs. Well I was wrong and only two showed up lol I put them in and look awesome but now im waiting on my new order of V2 switch backs. Once I get Dans grille in with the LEDs and Switch Backs its going to look awesome! I also ordered 5000K HID kit last night. I was going to get the 6000k but they are blue.

Looks good man. I like clear reflectors on a black truck!

Last week I finally found a set of PIAA LP570 open bar style light covers. So I bought a set to replace those white covers. They came in today... and look like shit. They are plastic, and the gap from the plastic to the light is so big I can almost slide my hand down inside. That and the lettering looks off sided or crooked from certain angles = blah! waste of money. I should just sell these and buy that 30" lightbar and be done with it.

Ilde was smooth when I put spark plugs in, but it's gotten a bit worse since then. My power steering reservor is showing my fluid just above the add line, my line is soaked all the way down. My oil level is sitting just above low as well (granted I am due for an oil change) but it's never dropped before.

Also when I was in 5th gear on the highway I noticed my temp gauge moved a couple dots above the quarter line and quickly dropped back to normal when I was back in 4th. It never moved before...

So either something catastrphic is about to happen or I'm guessing I'm going to need a new power steering setup, new coil packs, and new pulleys etc.

Almost ready to cancel tomorrows plans on redoing the truck.

Ilde was smooth when I put spark plugs in, but it's gotten a bit worse since then. My power steering reservor is showing my fluid just above the add line, my line is soaked all the way down. My oil level is sitting just above low as well (granted I am due for an oil change) but it's never dropped before.

Also when I was in 5th gear on the highway I noticed my temp gauge moved a couple dots above the quarter line and quickly dropped back to normal when I was back in 4th. It never moved before...

So either something catastrphic is about to happen or I'm guessing I'm going to need a new power steering setup, new coil packs, and new pulleys etc.

Almost ready to cancel tomorrows plans on redoing the truck.

Do the bumper, lift, wheels, and tires. Take a picture, laugh, cry, then sell it as is.

Got a viper 2way alarm/starter installed today and then I bought a alpine INE-s920hd 6.1 DIN DVD with navigation deck. I plan to install when I get the module and have the time.
yo should have bought mine i was selling! Lol i need to have it installed but since mines a manual i guess i need a couple seperate modules. Also everyone wants $400+ for the install

Do the bumper, lift, wheels, and tires. Take a picture, laugh, cry i'm not an easterner, then sell it as is.

or just cancel tomorrow. Sell the bumper/body lift as a combo. Take the lightbar and lights off and sell all the extra parts I can replace. Trade in truck or try selling for 4 weeks put tire money towards a new truck. wish I knew how much fixing my current problems will cost me.

Coil packs seem easy enough and probably cheap enough to do quickly; Same with pulleys etc. Power steering lines and pump... not too sure. Especially if my rack is fucked as I would have to drop the front end.

That or just keep topping up fluids, and drive this thing till I find a good deal on a 2014 GM truck or new Canyon/Colorado. Seems like I'm putting 2 grand into this every couple months fixing shit and I'm only at 145k...

I put too much money into this thing to give up now.

For what you're expecting of the truck, that might actually be the way to go. I love your truck man, but its a nearly 10 year old midsize with 35s . Things should be expected to go wrong..
Its comparable to a full-size running 38s I would say, just not a viable DD.

I ran 35's for 3 months. It's been skinny/12" 33's for a year now. This truck actually went through 3 power steering pumps on 235/75/15's, so it's just shitty GM engineering to be honest.

Ah, didn't know your crushers were only 33s.
Even still, any truck is going to have issues. GM or not, lifting and other mods that divert from the stock setup just increase the chances that something is going to implode.

I say go through with the changes that you were set on. Shits gonna happen regardless

Firmed up the seat bottom.....on the Colorado that is.

Did this to the little car the other day.  Pictures are from the little car, but same concept for the Colly.

With my aging back and the less than supportive seats on the Colly thought WTH this should work for the Colly too.

Remove the 4 bolts holding the driver seat.  Disconnect the electrical connection.  The rear seat cover is held on with a large clip.  Press it down slightly and push forward and she pops off.  Disconnect the 4 seat springs and slide the thin cutting board in.  Reverse steps to reassemble.

Saw this solution in another forum.  Picked up these at Waldo World - ultrathin cutting boards (2.25 mm thick) at $6 for a package of 4.

This seems to have done the trick. Seat bottom is firm, might to too firm for some.  Been sitting on an OBUS form seat support to better position my back for the lumber support I need from the OBUS back support.  Stiffening up the seat with the cutting board seems like I can get rid of the OBUS seat support.

Post by: AJ1794 on March 06, 2014, 09:48:32 PM
Mine is 3.5" so I'm pretty sure his is the same.

From the Volant website it says you need a 4" flange for your filter. The ones that Volant supplies that have a 4" flange are #61504 (http://www.volant.com/edetail.asp?ID=76&ptype=f) and 61509 (http://www.volant.com/edetail.asp?ID=81&ptype=f) so you could see if their shape is correct for your kit. You can click the part numbers in this post to see the filters. Viewing the kit suggested replacement filter it has a steep taper to it so the #'s I gave you might not work if the box cannot accommodate them.
Title: Re: What did you do to your 355 today??
Post by: sparkysz71 on March 06, 2014, 09:56:53 PM
Weird lol I searched the part numbers listed for everything GM and none matched even close to 4". Everything was either too big of a flange or slanted funny.  I wonder if the slant would make a difference honestly... I guess I would find out the hard way haha. I may call volant tomorrow and just double check before I go about  buying one. I've got the cleaning kit and the oiling kit here, and the filter definitely needs a clean... But those new power cores look like a lot less maintenance for a better product. Thanks for the links tho, I'll check em out regardless

My filter is 3.5x7x6 according to the box. Its not as long as the old oiled filter and fits in much nicer. The old oil filter was always a pain to squeeze into the box past the port (as you see in the picture, it's rather twisted). So just measure your old filter and the new powercore might actually be smaller in the right spots.

I'm also grabbing one of those pre filters in a bit, as they look really handy for dust. Held off for now as this power core was kinda pricey.

$130 (2) day shipping. It would have been around $110-15 with regular shipping. Most Canadian sites wanted $128 with regular shipping, so I figured no brainer go with Amazon.com. I held off buying one of these for so long due to that price tag. Even the pre filters for this filter are around $60.

Amazon has the pre-filter on sale right now for basically $30 with shipping, but it won't ship to Canada; bastards.

Could always ship to the border in Sweetgrass. I'm supposed to be going down there sometime this month or next, for a bunch of car parts for people... That's an option maybe?

All this talk about filters had me out in my truck after work freezing my fingers pulling my filter out. It's now soaking with the cleaner and I'll rinse it out soon. I also pulled my stock seats out of the truck, pulled the wiring harnesses and seatbelt buckles off the bottom of the seats, threw the seats in the blazer to take with me to Edmonton tomorrow to sell them. Didn't wire in the h3 seats or even bolt them down. Literally just threw em in the truck and locked it for now. When I get back on Sunday and it's warm out I'll take a crack at wiring it and getting them ready to go. But damn they look good in there and they are literally just sitting in the truck lol

On my way home this morning a check engine light came on; P0172. So I bought some fuel injector cleaner and been running around rev happy all day. Hopefully it will clear itself up and I won't have to screw around with the coil packs. Spark plugs are new, and the MAF was cleaned last summer. All my Vacuum lines are nice and tight, and same with the intake.

I also dropped off my bumper to get some work done to it.

Pulled the battery and got it tested this morning. Battery was fine so put it back in and went for a ride down the road to get gas. Truck wouldn't start so I waited for 30min for my buddy to bring me tools. Terminals were shot and weren't making a good connection. I found some replacements in the garage so I cut the old ones off, wire brushed off the post, and installed these. Works good now. I'll probably do the negative soon.

Got my H3 seats in and powered. Still don't have heat because I don't have the damn rap wire thing figured out... I have two options. Do this crazy rap mod from the nation, or attempt to see if the rap wire on the driver side kick panel that my audio chick mentioned, and see if that will work... Either way, happy about the fact they work now lol. Pics posted later when I wash the truck and clean the seats up

Get a mini fuse box like I did. Run your rap wire to a relay and then to the fuse box. That way you will have an accessible RAP circuits for any future projects.

Sorry I'm at work right now. I do have pic's of the fuse box in my work log. I used the remote switch wire for my amps as a source to power the relay. Any rap circuit will do because you only need enough power to switch the relay. Once the relay is switched on the real power comes from the battery.

Wow it's been awhile since I was last on! Been busy with work.

Few weeks ago I put in some 8000k HID headlights and fogs.

Today I had a magnaflow muffler put on as well as some JL speakers for the back doors (used and they still pump hard!) as well as some LEDs for the license plate lights and interior. All in all the trucks coming together!

Oh and I have a roll pan to put on next set I have off!

Picked it up from the bodyshop and got a reference to another local sandblasting place. Hopefully i'll get a good quote when I call them. Never washed the truck yet, the whole thing is dusty except for the painted door. This picture makes it look off still but I ran it through a red filter on photoshop and overall it looks pretty close.

You got a black truck! Just plastidip them green for the summer!

Anyways this morning I ordered a new brake switch from rockauto, cleaned my MAF sensor, organized the interior a bit better, got an oil change and found some black spray paint in my closet. So I spray bombed all the sanded spots on my bumper really quick. Still running a P0172 code, so I dunno what to do buy maybe go back to Horsepower Solutions and see if they can fix that. If they want more cash then I might just buy a PCM from lime-swap.

Went and washed the truck, removed the fail of a winter front I made and removed my passenger side headlight and DRL to dry them out AGAIN. Anyone know what is going on with them? This is the fourth time I'm draining my headlight and first time for the DRL. This has only ever happened to me on the passenger side, never the drivers side.

This only began to happen to me back in January with the headlight housing so maybe the cold combined with the heat generated from my HID's cracked the seal on the lens?

^What kind of rubber are you gonna run?

Today I got the rear most cats cut out of the exhaust and a tip out the back. It's definitely got the growl it's been missing but the tip still needs work, going back in on Thursday..

Nope no codes. I've only driven it from the shop to home but it feels a tiny bit 'briskier' in the higher rpms, barely noticable though. But it actually sounds like a v8 now

Just replaced my brake switch. All my brakes lights were working but I figured why not give this a try. Its still didn't solve my cruise control issue. So I ordered in another switch for the cruise control. If this doesn't work then its a fuse issue or corroded wire.

Switched out the switch behind my clutch pedal, and still no cruise control. Only switch I haven't repalced yet is the switch next to the brake switch or the cruist control stalk.

Got rid of my P0172 code by unhooking my truck over night but my idle is stil pretty bad. Not to mention a slight stutter in power when I give the truck gas. Not sure that is going on there..

thanks guys.  I hated those thing also.  Now I am looking to buy new wheels.  I want to buy the SOFT 8's.  I hate how my current wheels poke like that.  I am not sure on the offset of those rims as i bought them used but i suspect its like a 3.75 or something close to that.  I wanna keep the same tires which are 33 X10.5.  I know most people use the 4.75 back spacing but usually they are running the 12.5 inch wide so I am thinking I need something more like a 4.25 or maybe 4.5 backspacing instead.  Anybody have any opinions??

What kind did you get?  Probably too early to tell, but any leaking?  I went with an Alpine on mine (love it!), and no leaks after 2yrs, but looking for something else on my wife's tahoe (my friends audio/video place stopped carrying alpine).

Got both off eBay. Cost around $10 for each camera. The old one had been on my truck for about 8 months and no leaks. I will be putting it on my wife's car because it will fit better on her car.

Added more zip ties to keep my grille from flopping around. Still haven't decided whether or not to just plastidip my extra grill and throw it on or spend the $100 for a dremel and another $100 for another insert and cut out the middle. Good thing the weather is cold, giving me more time to decide.

Also washed my older Volant oiled filter yesterday and let it dry overnight. I put it back into the truck and took out the new powercore filter. Got my regular idle back, no more P0172 cel code and my truck doesn't do the herky jerky when I accelerate.

So either I spend the $100 and put my truck back on the dyno and (hopefully calibrated) for the powercore filter or just say screw it and sell it. Probably going to sell it and go with that works. Otehrs had better luck running the PC filter but my truck doesn't like it. No problems with the Volant oiled filter though; 355's are too bloody finicky.

Seeing how I'm getting work done on my bumper again, I'm going to get the 20" mounting brackets cut off and figure out how to mount the 30" on the front end.

That or just ditch the metal bumper and mount the 30" on my stock bumper like I originally planned. Options are open  ;D

Installed a Powercore filter last night that I bought off of Clutch, gave me a P0172 code this afternoon so I took the MAF sensor off, cleaned it and now letting it dry. Hopefully that'll fix the issue.

I also picked up a new front brake cable assembly yesterday so hopefully it'll fix my sticky parking brake issue.

Gonna try and get my calipers back together this weekend so that they're ready to go on maybe next weekend if the weather gets better.

Jeebus that powercore sure is cursed! Maybe I'll just stick with the oiled one and buy a prefilter lol

My powercore is fine.. tho I should probably oil/clean it.

I washed my truck finally after my 2500km of driving last week.

Powercore filters are oil-less as far as I know.

And yes that filter is cursed lol hopefully it'll end up working for me.

Running new speaker wire into the doors was a challenge, especially on the driver door. Had to drill a new hole, add grommet and run cables protected into the dash. Totally worth it though. These kicker door speakers are so nuts and im happy with how it all looks, especially the new tweeter mounts on the doors.

Yeah it was a lot of work but so worth it. Buying the speakers, amp and consumables cost me less than $300 total. If I didnt piece the kit together myself the wiring alone would have cost me $200. The diy complete wiring kits are such a rip off.

Checked the front wheel bearings before getting in there to replace the broken wheel stud.  Found the bearings did not have play.  Hurrah!! Truck has about 75,000 kms - too lazy to go out and get the actual kms.

Will get the replacement stud and lug nut today so I can put my summers on this weekend.

Get a quote back? And yeah it sounds killer. That clarity is ridiculous. The amp is super old so sometimes it has electrical gremlins in it at low volumes but I just turn it up and it squashes them. I think I might turn the gains down on the amp so the signal I have to send to the amp will be stronger, see if that fixes it. Its not really a big issue since its always loud or off anyways. What do you expect for a $40 amp from a kijiji deal haha.

I got a quote for paint for the hood while I was out getting one for the bumper an grille and for just the outside it was going to be around 600-700. I think I might just wait on painting it for now. Maybe if things change around May I might just get the whole front end done just so it all matches decently well.

I also located a decent shape box here in the city, same color from what I can tell. Getting a hell of a deal on it with the tailgate included. Just gotta find a place to do it. Then maybe get it Line-X'ed after I got it on.

I swapped my winter tires for my ATs.

I also quickly slapped some paint on a few bits under the truck.

Those are cool but I've also had issues with those getting stuck on valve stems with my old cavalier. I had blue anodized ones on it, but it usually only happened over the winter months. I have some crossed flags valve stem caps like those on my corvette and have yet to have a problem with them being that I only drive it in the summer.

Thats what I found too. shocks were $67 each iicr and he took taxes off for me. The only cheaper place I could find was jb's power centre which was $10 cheaper per shock but they had to order it in (2-4 weeks) Not to mention, the guy I dealt with at IO was super friendly and helpful. I will definitely be going back.

Picked up a spare tire today. 285/75r16. I went expecting to see a used tire, worth less than the 50 bucks the guy was asking. When I get there, it's a brand new tire. Still had the sticker on the tread. What a steal! Lol

I went to a few tire shops and narrowed it down to Bridgestone Deuler AT Revo 2's or Cooper AT 3's. Going to order a set of whatever I decide on Monday. Took a wheel off and test fitted one of the new rims. The new tires are going to stick out a good amount past my Z71 flares. Should look meaty :)

oh and ordered a set of black lug nuts and a set of nickel .40 S&W bullet valve stem caps.

Title: Re: What did you do to your 355 today??
Post by: Nomad on April 14, 2014, 06:44:44 PM
Not as aggressive as I would have liked but I had to make a compromise on looks vs price, ,mileage, and comfort, as 95% of my driving is on the road. They actually look a little more knobby in person than in pictures. I think they will work good for me on road and my occasional trip off the beaten path. Plus the difference in price pays for most of my exhaust. :)

Picture of them on a truck.

Got my spare changed out so that it matches the rolling radius of my tires. It is a 285/75r16. And it fit under the bed. The exhaust already had a heat shield, and there's still a bit of room on the exhaust side. The driver side, however, just grazes the shackle... Lol

Gonna run it for a few days and see if it causes any real damage to the tire and go from there. If it starts chewing it up, I'll be removing it and chucking it in the bed lol. Just nice to have a spare that I feel comfortable with now. Only issue now is that I'll have to switch the flat (if it's on the front) with a good tire from the rear, and throw the spare on the rear due to the back spacing issue with the lift kit haha

Speaking of spares, I noticed that the lug nut wrench that comes in the OEM tool kit cannot be used with my winter rims, as they don't leave enough clearance around the lug nuts.  A thinner socket is required.  So, I was driving around all winter with a spare, but would have never been able to mount it, since I would have been unable to remove the wheel with the flat.  For all those running aftermarket wheels, this is something you should check.  I don't have that issue with my summer wheels. 

Sparky, do you carry a second jack in order to swap a front and rear tire?  Even though my spare tire is smaller than what I run on the truck, I did get a wheel with the correct backspace so I could at least mount it.  Maybe adding a wheel spacer to your kit would be easier than doing a front/rear swap in the event of a front flat.

Ya, have to agree with you there.  Prices in some urban areas across Canada are over the top.  Well over the top.  A gal I worked with for many years is retiring and moving from Vancouver to PEI.  $150,000 gets one into a house.  Now, along with that are long winters and high heating costs.  But, summer time in PEI has got to be the prettiest.

I was thinking if the axle gets flexed the leaf pack / shackle wants to move horizontally and pushes against the wheel more, which would put more stress on the bushing? Or would it even move that much? How solid is the wheel, is there any give? I'm no expert though just tossing around thoughts, probably over thinking this.... :)

I drove all the way to Edmonton and back today, hitting bumps...those Edmonton roads are shit... And I thought Calgary's were bad lol but happy to report that there really wasn't any real change to the tire
 As for carrying a spacer, that could be an idea. I don't need a second jack, basically I'd switch the spare for a good tire first, then move to the flat on the front with the same jack and put the good tire on there. Speaking of wheel spacers, anyone know what the stock spare rim is for offset/backspace? So I can get a spacer that fits within the parameters to get the necessary 4.5"BS?  That is, until I can just get a spare rim in the correct BS to just alleviate the problem completely

Couple days ago I installed LED strips that I got for xmas. Both footwells and under rear seat. They are blue - no pics, im sure youve seen it before.

Today I picked up my grill from the paint shop. Its V dubs old grill. This pic is right after a wash and you can still see how faded my original paint is compared to the new grill.

Later on I took it off and blacked out all the AC lines and anything that wasnt black. While I had the paint out I gave my entire frame, hitch and tow hooks some fresh paint.

Between my recently acquired dent and the brand new grill that stands out, new paint job is now #1 on priority list. I was going to get wheels and tires but its just dying for some fresh paint now.

I can get my truck professionally painted for 600 and case of beer :) 2000 is way steep they won't have to touch up the door jams if you don't have major dents you shouldn't have to pay more then 1200-1500 for a good paint job

the only other option in my area quoted me $6700. For 6700 the remove everything and paint it and repair all rust and said it will last another 8 years. the shop that quoted 2000 said they just roll er in the paint booth and giver.

Hand wash and hand waxed today. Haven't really realized how bad my paint chips from the highway driving have been. It made me sad  to see so many. Quite a few door dingers also. The black hides nothing! All in all I still love my truck.

Drove back from my trip up north. Just over 1,000km drive both ways and the black regular cab basically did 10.4L/100km (22MPG) at a steady 117km/h. My red truck would be around 12mpg, so overall not bad.

Working on getting my new brakes on with the 09 calipers. For some reason my hub wont come off the spindle with all the bolts out. Looks like its rusted right to it. Has anyone ran into this problem before and have a solution?
Do I also have to remove the speed sensor before I pull them out?

Might also throw in my new HID's for the highs and fogs if I have time, if not then I have something for tomorrow.

You can try two things. Put a bar between the rotor and frame and use the steering to pop it. Or hammer the rotor if your replacing it anyway.

We did it the redneck way.

Put socket extensions between the hub and frame and turned the wheel slowly.

POP.

I replaced everything (brakes/hubs) so we also beat the rotor, but that did nothing.

I have a ABS fault intermittently since then, but everything is brand new. The light only come on when I am having a bad day lol

About 3 hours including clean up. For 4wd, you have to disconnect the front driveshaft at the t case in order to get at the the bolts. And messy yes. If I would have been thinking, i would have installed a drain plug kit but whatever.

To make less mess, i worked all the bolts off but more on one cornee than all the others. Once it drained into a pan I had on a large sheet of cardboard I took out all bolts except four corners, then down to two bolts at opposite corners. I had them both backed out quite a bit and I was able to hold the pan up with one arm, and undo the bolts with the other. Then delicately lower it to try and minimize the mess.

Sounds a lot worse than it actually is, once you get at it, its not a big deal.

Replaced a leaking front differential seal (passenger side) and while i was down there, drained the fluid and put some new one.  Wasn't too bad of a job, just a little time consuming to get at the actual seal.  It was slowly sipping for a while but had become a lot worst in the last few weeks, actually leaving small puddles in the driveway!  Amazing what a 12$ part can do....lol.

Today was nuts. My lug nuts are all rusted out and I only had 1 set, so I went to buy some new ones. Canadian Tire didn't have any, neither did Maslack or the GM dealer. And the GM dealer was charging $6 a pop. So I got on the phone with a bunch of tire and rims shops around Sudbury and FINALLY found a place that offered the correct lug nuts. I ordered in 20 and they're coming in tomorrow, at $2 each which is a solid price. Couldn't ask for more.

In preparation, I pulled out the chrome rims and washed em up according to my good ol' how-to http://www.canada355.ca/index.php?topic=5324.0

Also sanded down the hook and the pin.

Tomorrow:
- Pick up lug nuts
- retorque my wheel spacers
- sand and repaint the brakes
- polish the rims then put them on
- clean out the interior
- paint hook


Picked up a nice 25 pack of Simoniz microfiber cloths from Canadian tire today for about 15 bucks. Good deal?

It's great having the truck again and doing stuff to it. I've missed this forum.

Going to try and keep my truck simple. I keep adding too much to it and getting annoyed with taking care of everything. This summer for instance I'll be hitting some crossing and deep mud pits, and these retrofits will get dirty/water on the them. I got my dual hi/lo mod, and that's good enough for me; Why wreck something custom? I'd leave them in the black truck but I doubt I'll be keeping it. Once these HID's sell then I'll be listing both my light bars and keeping whichever one doesn't sell first.

Finally got around to replacing my front parking brake cable, what a PITA. Glad I got it done though, didn't take as long as I expected.

Going to replace the diff fluid later tonight. I intended to do it last fall but it got cold when I had the time to do it so that never happened.

Also, I might install my new HID's in the highs and fogs. I did a little color test last night and it turns out they're the same color as the high's I have in right now so they don't match the lows. I was hoping they'd be the same but I might just go and get a new 6000K bulb set for the lows so that they match the highs and fogs.

JB Weld takes 24 hrs to fully cure... If you want something more instantaneous try super glue?  :idk:

That JB weld needs a long cure time from what I read. Did you have to flip the connectors around to get the hids to fire?
Title: Re: What did you do to your 355 today??
Post by: Terrible_1 on April 30, 2014, 03:49:42 PM
Yeah i had cured them for 18 hours, it felt solid but when i put a wrench on it it busted off with a little effort. I dont think i used enough jb lol. Yeah both needed flipping, they blew the fuses when i had them the other way which was weird.

Booked my black truck in for an appointment to get its rear pinion seal changed. I also bought a couple U joints for the drive shaft so I can change those myself. I also did a chalk test on the red truck, as I was sitting at 40PSI (50% contact patch) and now I'm at 30 PSI for 95% contact patch. Oh and I bought some side mirrors off Fox23 in case I bust one on the trails this summer. $40 for (2), can't go wrong.

Finally got the sway bar off. Was a little hard but some WD40, vice grips, and a cheater bar, I was able to get it to budge from 8 years of being rusted on. I snapped the head off a bolt that holds the one bracket to the frame though.

I have to say I love how it rides without it. Way smoother over bumps and body roll isn't half as bad as I thought by the way people have talked about it. Probably because I have my torsion bars cranked and it stiffens it up a little from wobbly stock.

From what I've heard, the biggest issues are high speed cornering while carrying a load.

If you haven't tried it I'd give it a go. You could even just unbolt the endlinks and ziptie them to the bar, decide if you like it, then go from there.

Got my black truck back from the shop. The rear pinion seal was changed out, and found out the U joints are still good and the diff wasn't low on oil. So that saves me some work, and questions. My truck seemed quieter on the ride home but it was a short jaunt. If I keep getting the annoying noise after a bit of driving I know it's the stock muffler rotted out. I already have one on order so that's no biggie.

It wasn't. But after driving it for a month I had enough of the 355 build quality and said F*** it and sold it while I can. When the rear window starting leaking water at a carwash I had enough. That and I didn't like how twitchy the ZQ8 steering rack was on the highway. So I fixed a couple issues and sold the truck before it became another money pit.

Yesterday I painted some of the rear end black, and today I bought some air lift bags. Going to be cranking up the front end 2" next month and these will level it out for a nice 10" front to back.

I got the ccfl and changing the colour is as easy as buying the 194 led bulb in the colour you want. Now it wont change the colour of the ccfl mind you but it will change the inner side marker.

Trucks mostly loaded up and in a couple hours I'm out the door and heading into the bush. I love having an extended cab! No room to carry people but tons of room to pack away everything for camping. Only things going into the box are a couple coolers and the extra jerry cans. Everything else is nice and dry which is perfect.

Yesterday finally got around to cleaning the TB. I've been getting a code for below idle speed for a couple of months so I was well overdue waiting for a nice day with time available.
Lots of fun pulling all the air system out of the way to get to the TB. Don't have any clear idea how to pull off the special connector/clips to detach the TB so I stuffed a towel under it while still connected to the lines but unbolted from the intake. Some "Seafoam" spray and 20 minutes of wiping it out removed a surprising build up of varnish/carbon before bolting it back on and setting up for the "Seafoam" spray application while the engine is running. Learned that the truck won't run without the MAF sensor portion of the air intake hooked up giving readings. Three minutes of holding it at 1500 RPM while spraying, shut it off and restore the whole intake to original then take it for a nice run to clear out the excess and blow smoke enough to clear the complex of all bugs for a few hours.
Today a bit of a freeway drive out to Abbotsford to purchase gas at 15 cents a litre less, swing by a buddies on the way back and note how huge the difference is in the throttle response and even the regular running for the drive.
Now that I know what and how to do it AND the big differences it makes I will be doing it regularly every year now. Shouldn't have waited so long to do it either.
Anybody considering the idea shouldn't wait or worry about doing it. A few tools, proper cleaner, and a roll of paper towels can get it done in under an hour easily.
So go do it !

Don't think so. I got a spray for just cleaning maf sensors. And the clip on the vacuum line on the tb. Push the gray part of the clip on the top down and pull. Pushing down on the top releases it on the bottom.
Also got my hood struts installed today.

"Seafoam" not recommended for MAF sensors. I bought a can of MAF cleaner while at CT (using all the CT money on my card. $50 of stuff for $4 I paid !)
But in my truck the MAF is located on the back end of the air filter box way far from the TB an all so it was spotlessly clean and I didn't need the cleaner.
I will add that the "Seafoam" spray that ended up all over the plastic parts under the hood (overspray and splashes) when smeared/wiped around ended up cleaning everything up very nicely. The plastic all looks new. Hope it doesn't eat away/degrade it over time...

Small body lift- no bigger than 2" though, 'cause you'll end up having to install gap guards. Also depends on yur suspension- might be as simple as some shackles out back and a TB crank in the front

SON he asked for LIFTED GUY'S input. You can't even decide where to permanently mount your kleenex let alone lift or lower!

Anyways,
If you are torsion bar, 2" rear shackles or aal and crank the front. If you want, do both aal and shackle for better leaf packs. Shackles are easy to build and you can build your spacers easy for front balljoint flip. If you build your lift parts and crank front you can have 3" lift for about $200 including new rear shocks (quote includes rancho 5000 series shocks and pro comp aal) + wheel alignment. I would recommend some sort of gap guards for any amount of body lift its not a have to for any amount, just looks cleaner.

Im sitting on rear aal and 2" shackles with front torsion crank on 31's w/ big offset and I think it has a nice stance to it without making it too big for now;)

You don't ever have to add gap guards, most people do because it looks ugly. But even with a 1.5" it'd still be a good idea. Also, the fact that you have to install 3 bucks worth of plastic shouldn't be a decision maker...

Got a call from the shop and the new rack is in, but they are having a bitch aligning it. The right tire is at maxium adjustment, and they suspect the steering knuckle is knackered.

So not happy right now. Gonna have to borrow my landlords Ford again to get to work on monday.

Seeing how my PIAA's haven't sold yet. I'm going back to plan one.  Ditch the body lift, ditch the bumper, go back to a non cranked stock CST lift and run 295/65/18 Duratracs as they are pretty light. So once I find a good deal on a used set I'm swapping out these heavy Nittos and selling them. Keeping the 18" Method though, as I like them waaay too much. Shame these trucks are so weak.

Haha your funny. I'd be lucky to get $12k with the lightbar and the truck as is right now. In other words, parting stuff and downgrading while driving/milling out this 355 pos makes more sense.

Nowadays I laugh when people want to go higher with a 355. Have fun repairing everything and doing nothing fun. Shit if I kept some of the stock stuff I'd go back to my stock'ish setup. I can't even sell my lift right now without buying new parts. If I kept those stock parts I would ditch the lift for $1k and count my loses.

I was foolish enough to listen to everyone else say these are good trucks off road. Too ignorant to realize all the regular off road boys SAS'd the 355's they own to stop fixing the IFS.

Live and learn. Why SAS some new plastic pos when a good looking classic is ready to go.

On the bright side, my front end is fully replaced  :crackup

So ditching the tires and going to a 295/65/18 I'd save 55lbs.  Bumper around 40lbs so I say 100lbs all in. I'd sell the 50" and light mount if I found a buyer and keep the CST lift. That would lower wind resistance off that I should (from past experience) go from 12MPG to 17-18 mpg. Granted that 17-18mpg was before tune/exhaust/header.

So I would get better mileage or the same with more jam in between gears.

Title: Re: What did you do to your 355 today??
Post by: Clutch on May 23, 2014, 10:48:20 PM
Don't worry about it. That install issue was just due to over cranking the TB's from what I can recall. Most of the issues I'm dealing with are due to age and lift. I'd still be dealing with some of these issues running my old 3.75BS rims and 31x10.50/15 tires.

Regardless. I haven't come across any trucks in the past having this many problems with these many kms.

Most def. Shops bills are what they are, but you can at least strengthen stuff up.

People don't like my honesty the best of times. Doesn't help this whole community has money invested in some way or another. Hence why I really don't care if people are offended if I'm  straight up honest about these trucks. I'd hate to see someone want to emulate my truck in some way (believe me I get annoyed enough with questions here or elsewhere) and then be as dissatisfied as I am.

I have to agree with ya. Not that I have a lot of experience modding the 355 (start the hate bros, lol), but the aftermarket support for a vehicle either makes it or breaks it. I love the 355 and the forum support, but if I could, I'd go fullsize.

These trucks weren't made to be off-road mud pigs.  Most guys who wheel their trucks and jeeps know how to fix them their self.. If wheeling is something you want to keep doing find an old jeep where parts are cheaper and tougher and take your time or join a jeep club and learn how to fix shit. Emergency shop repairs and throwing money at the problems clearly aren't making them go away. I don't mean to sound like a dick either dude, but how long have you been throwing money at your lift and alignment issues? Frustrating as it is, you gotta know when to give up on this vision and find something else to focus your energy on. It's just a truck

I plasti-dipped my front bumper today. Ran out so I couldn't do the rear or steps but I am going to try photoshopping them black. If I like it im going to bedline everything.

I also cut off the lip on the sides of the bumper that the valance clips on to, trimmed the sides of the bumper plastic to allow for more clearance, and removed the big guard to see if I like it better off.

I was thinking about those, to try and keep my tan seats clean. But, I don't think I would have liked how the red and black looked in my truck.

I wanted to buy neoprene seats instead of the cheaper neosupreme  but whatever. Same with colours, the brighter red wasn't a high priority but the price is right. I'll try them out and see if I like them.

Ah yes. Ice caps are a standard for summertime vehicle work. How bad were they? When I replaced mine in my yota, I took the cap off and literally dumped rust powder out of it. It was the old needle bearings:D

Most the caps were missing all of the pin bearings. Two or three caps completely lost there rubber seal and was grinding on u joint. I was probably close to having my driveshaft fall out while driving.

The scrub pad they gave me sucked. Even when I put it under my orbital sander. Would have taken twice as long than it did. And it took like 3 - 4 hours as it was. In the section it said to use the scrub pad or you can use sandpaper or anything else abrasive. thank the lord. I used 240 grit or something close to that.

Oh yea the one think that does not come with the kit is wax and grease remover. But it is in the steps of preparation. Glad I had some.

Those door projectors look pretty cool, you mounted them in the bottom of the door panels & wired them into the interior lighting I'm guessing?
Title: Re: What did you do to your 355 today??
Post by: Nomad on June 04, 2014, 10:55:09 AM
Nope. I found these ones which are a little pod that sticks to the inside of the door. They run on 3 AAA batteries so no wiring work needed. There is a small magnet that attaches on the door sill under the light that acts as a sensor. When it doesn't detect the magnet (door is opened) it turns on and when they connect again (door is closed) it turns off. Also has an automatic shutoff after 2 min if you leave your door open.

If you replace your battery for the love of God go away from the AC delco and go to something heavier duty. Imo even if you arent running extra lights, big stereo etc, the cca of these stock batteries are too low for our Canadian winters. When I had my first battery replaced under warranty (first winter I had the truck...) I ran a motomaster 72 (just what I had at the time out of my yota) and even though its not that great of a battery it turned my truck over better than the stock in the winter.

Did a full synthetic oil change last night while pounding beers and watching the kids play around the camp fire. When I was done I wanted to keep tinkering and thought Id clean my battery connections. Well not sure if they were cracked already or I just drunken he manned the nuts on but i broke the terminals lol. Ran out to CT first thing this morning and got new ones. $9 for new terminals and they hold way better than stock!

Got quite a bit done in the last few days:

Roof console for switches (not 100% complete yet, I want to fill in the blank spot with a piece of sheet metal to hide the wires and clean it up)
(http://img.tapatalk.com/d/14/06/12/azydusa5.jpg)

Got my rough country lights in. Oh man they are sure worth it for $100

PA bumper lights before
(http://img.tapatalk.com/d/14/06/12/pevu4e7y.jpg)

RC bumper lights now
(http://img.tapatalk.com/d/14/06/12/qe8azery.jpg)

I paced it out and my phone camera doesnt pick it up but they are effectively bright up to 50 meters. That was up to a fence and I could still see beyond that. Super impressed with them and highly recommended. Came with a nice wiring harness as well, all plug and play.

I also built a work light out of my old fogs for emergencies or whatever. I have a 20ft cigarette lighter extension that it plugs into. I also wired an adapter for 110 so I can use it in my garage or house etc.

Nice choice on the Methods. What size are they? I know the standards/double standards have crazy backspacing at smaller rim sizes. I think a 15x8 is roughly 3.50" BS which is nuts but still a nice lightweight/strong rim. I was thinking of running a smaller Method wheel before on either of my trucks.

Edit: Just made out the size 265/70/16. So 43lbs each and Standards in that size or 4.5" back spacing so that's pretty good. You might even be able to keep the rims down the road if you ever drop in a sub frame lift!

Thanks, and yeah I went with the 16's for a nice balance of looks and price over 17's. And close, I got 255/70/16 haha, I weighed them after being mounted, and it was 66 lbs for the rim/tire together. For now I'm thinking just a couple inches of lift until I have the money someday to do custom long travel suspension, but I would still be able to run these rims then too haha.

Not sure if I will keep these or not. Non rigid LEDs, but made locally in Alberta, Canada. Radiant LED brand, but so cheap; As in suppliers buddy bought for cost and I bought for less cheap (true story). Kijiji score of the day anyhow. Couple local fleet shops are carrying them on the shelves, so they seem promising.
(2) Radiant RR160 led pods and a Radiant "Zeus" series 21.5" lightbar.

The bar is going between the pods, and the pods are going where the round lights are installed. The holes near the frame horns will be covered when I reinstall my KrFab tow mounts. The mounts aren't in right now cause the holes were filled in too much when I got the bumper modified last.

Got my super servo in and shifts are instant now. Also seems like acceleration off the line is better as I can feel my tires almost breaking loose. I don't think the servo would really effect that. Could be be the bit of fresh trans fluid they put in or it's in my head. Nice and firm when I stomp on it.

Ordered a Lime-swap tune as well.
My plan:
-firm up the shifts another 15-20%
-turn of or reduce torque management and abuse mode
-enable powertrain enrichment
-correct spedo
-correct shift points
-turn off evap codes
and let him do his thing for better fuel economy, power, and response. I'll let you guys know how it performs.

Took the sway bar out because the end links were making noise. Broke the two drivers side bolts off so it look like it'll be staying out for a while until I get around to drilling out the bolt.

I also suggest a 2/4 or a 3/5 drop... The stock rake will look bad once you're lowered, go level.

My bad, didn't know you needed to notch on 3/5
2/3 would still look better than 3/3 IMO.

Let's be real here, unless you're inducing epilepsy that thing has zero purpose.

HAHAHA
It is too bad you decided to redo your "build log" as I could not find the quote I was looking for. I'll just retype it however because I can not resist.

LBC: "A police cruiser would know better than to wire his light bar like a clown to his headlights"
800800: "There is nothing police cruiser related here bud"
LBC: "You're right, nothing police related at all..."
800800: "Time to wire some front strobes into my dash to look more like a cop"
Canada355: *face palm*

Stop screwing around with this police inspired crap. bull bar and rims are one thing, black it all out. Could be a cool cop build. but the lights and strobes are just making you look like a tool. We probably all sound like a douchebags to you but some people just need some tough love. Others need love smashes to the face. We are just laying out the inevitable for you.

Youre a good guy, 800. I installed that LED dome light you gave to me for free!  Wow is it bright! Now I have to get the blue plastic cover.

If you are going for the cop look, lift your truck. What kind of cop truck has to slow and swerve for pot holes and bumps. Cop truck should be able to offroad as well. Every penny you waste on lights and crap that look gay anyways is money that could be spent towards bigger wheels and tires.

To clear the air with all the members about the strobe light bar on my dash (herein refered as 'deck lights')-
They are a mix of amber and clear LED lights that strobe together, or separately, depending on mode. Additionally, the clear LEDs can "steady burn" meaning they stay on and don't strobe, which can be paired in unison with the strobing ambers, or alone, in which they are then considered alley lights. Now you're thinking "Ok, that's great- but WHY!?".
And to be fair, it is a good question. It's not a common mod, and some people think I'm way over in left field with my head in a certain orifice.
I use it to increase the visibility of myself and my truck when I'm working, which is a practical use. They also give off a certain "cop-like" look that I like, which also happens to be a pseudo-theme of my truck. I am slightly worried about a cop impersonation ticket, but I don't intend on racing down the roads with it on pulling people over, so I think I'm safe. As mentioned previously, they'll also be for show use too.

Finally, I feel some sort of strange connection to LEO (law enforcement officers) and my truck is my strange, quirky homage to them.
Laugh, jeer, spite, hate all ya want. I like 'em.

Though they are kinda wobbly. Gonna have to think of a solution...

Thank You for FINALLY admitting to the cop theme. Now that you have admitted to it I believe people "should" be a little easier on your choices for your truck. If people start ragging on you remind them of the cop theme and that it's your choice. All that matters is that you like it.

I haven't had anything to say yet.
I'm into all sorts of lighting related ANYTHING.
Until I see some shots of how well the lights work in the way intended I still don't have a valid opinion worth stating.
I could use something like that in more than one way and nobody would ever accuse me of trying to look like a cop. (Think more of a mobile DJ lightshow available with the flip of a few switches.)
So don't put too much thought into the negative feedback. Some people just won't or don't understand things until they see it.
I might suggest a few images or a video of the lights in use to calm the comments.
Ya gotta know that everybody here always wants to see pics of the other guys stuff.

Rim width doesn't directly correlate to tire width. ZQ8's are 8" and come with 235's and I've seen guys run up to 285's

Post by: bass_junky on June 29, 2014, 10:54:30 AM
Why does tire size not collate with rim size. So have a rim that is 8" and a tire that is 8" instead of saying 235. I have no idea how that tire is going to look on that rim. I like a nice straight surface, Not out passed the rim or a stretched tire.

Collate = My new word of the day !!
Title: Re: What did you do to your 355 today??
Post by: AJ1794 on June 29, 2014, 01:29:02 PM
I mean that a ZQ8 rim is 8" wide but the stock tire that is mounted on it (235/50R17) is closer to 9.5" wide sidewall to sidewall so you can't necessarily judge tire width based on rim width. Having a tire the same width as the rim will result in stretched tires.

I'm terrible at explaining things so maybe someone with better knowledge could explain what I'm talking about.

Sold the winch. I wanted to run a hidden setup but no one was willing to modify my bumpers mounting points to make it fit. So I figure I would let someone else put it to good use, and put the money towards something I would use more often.

Speaking of which, I'm just waiting on a couple replies from some kijiji ads, and if no one takes my offers I might be heading down to Calgary tomorrow and grabbing a new tent.

Score, got a reply. Grabbed a Rigid 20" E Series BNIB! for like half price. The mounting tabs I got installed aren't spaced out enough. So they gotta get redone... it should sit a bit lower once it the tabs are fixed.

Dude I paid like $125 for my alpine deck and it has 2 pre outs. I was looking and saw some pioneer decks for $120 last night that also have 2 pre outs.

I installed the loaner PCM from lime-swap tonight and I'll be mailing out mine in the morning. I am very impressed with how much of a difference there is from just the tune. It has way more pep, noticeable power increase, and turns the 33's a lot easier. Wide open throttle the trucks screams now and is just more fun to drive. It;s also nice to have the truck shifting properly and the spedo correct.

My exhaust should finally be shipped out by this friday too if I'm lucky.

Dropped the bumper off with Fox23 to get it modified. I couldn't fit my tow mounts on it before, and the tabs for my 20" Rigid were welded on just a tad too short. I am also getting those useless round lights removed and the area filled in. I might do a flush mount in that spot in the future... big "might". If I do flush mounts anywhere on my truck it'll be on the rear bumper first.

Did a battery test which it failed 10.6 volt also indicated bad cell (pretty bad considering just over 55,000 km on it) so it got a new Carquest battery & scanned for codes but nothing was found (just history voltage codes from bad battery) :idk: Good to go now. :thumbsup:

Back in December I was heading off the Second Narrows Bridge, keeping up with traffic at about 90, on the fairly steep downhill grade, just about to the bottom/end of the bridge. In front of me are several vehicles all starting to round the gentle bend to the left allowing me to see how they are moving along and unrestricted. A perfect sight of a surprisingly fast rush hour passage into North Vancouver.
Suddenly, for no visible reason, a car up front slams on their brakes causing five or six of us to also lock `em up ! As it turns out, I have a rather large drink "cup" for sustaining myself ALL DAY. It holds almost 2 litres of liquid if you don't throw any ice inside.
As it was December I had only half a tray of ice in there. The rest was close to 1.5 litres of the notorious Coca-Cola. A good supply for a perceived long day.
Well the "cup" rolled off my seat and the lid exploded off as it hit the floor just where it starts to curve up the firewall.
Besides the traffic outside I got to watch a wave of icy Coke wash back and forth across the floor of the passenger side. Splashing up under the dash and washing under the seat. (I even managed a few seconds of video on my phone.)
For those unfamiliar with this part of roadway, the highway, just a little after exiting the bridge, rises even more sharply upward compared to the downward slope off the bridge. It goes up and up and up to reach what is know as the "Upper Levels Highway" along a section know as "The Cut".
It is a devious bit of engineering by the "experts" out here in BC known for their exemplarary road network development and building.
So just after watching the wave settle down and stop bouncing from nose to seat I get to pull the nose upward for a lengthy climb allowing all that hasn't soaked into the flooring to slowly seep over the restrictions to saturate as far back as the back seat. Yummy yummy.
Besides the mess I was most upset that I was going to have to go caffeine free for the day. Not an easy task for an addict such as me.

So that was one. Now for the other.
In February the shop had run out of soap. The boss kept forgetting to get some more. As I was spending most of my time in the shop performing fabrication work the person most impacted was ME.
So on a Friday evening, on the way home, I picked up a big bulk "bottle" of liquid hand soap that was on sale at a store I go by every day.
I left it in the truck all weekend so I couldn't forget it for Monday.
Monday comes and shortly after starting my day I remember the soap in the truck.
I go grab the "bottle" to find it a quarter full. The rest had leaked out slowly on the carpet in the back. I had the "bottle" secured in place right in the middle with other things on the floor so it couldn't get smashed up or slide around. Apparently, there is a high water content in liquid hand soap. A new container left outside for a couple of nights in February can FREEZE and crack open. And the cold temperatures will keep the smell to a minimum so you might think that there isn't any sort of problem.
Other than scraping most of it up with a small squeegee and some paper towels there isn't much you can do except enjoy your new air freshener for a few weeks.
Oh, and constantly remind your young child to be careful with wet feet as the floor will be very slippery.

So this past weekend the weather was stinkin' HOT and dry enough to haul the interior out and give the carpet a good hosing out.
This is how it looked.
Note that my 5 year old son helped me out so the job took more than twice as long as it should have. BUT I am not complaining. I am bragging !
The carpet dried out in record time BUT the foam padding glued under didn't totally dry in the 3 hours I was able to hang it up.
With the continued 30 degree days this week I can't see any problems getting it dry underneath.
Here are the pics.

Jesus- thats quite the stain. Hope you managed to get it all out.
And I love it when people help me with stuff, even if it's just to hand me something- gives me someone to talk to so I don't seem crazy for talking to myself

Well...technically it was yesterday.
Skipped the monthly meet (and the first one for us in 4 months) for a little off-roading to find one of the back side routes to Stave Lake.
Some pretty tricky driving in a few spots and one of them resulted in a little thump to the truck. A large chopped off branch tagged the front quarter panel just above the bumper and below the headlight. Nothing too bad. Barely noticed the hit even.
BUT when the wife opened her door to check it out...well that's another story !
So now I need to pull it off and see if I can work it back to (fairly) normal or else hit the wreckers in search of a replacement.

Still, we all agreed that we had a lot of fun. I'm not too worried about the damage as this is a big part of what the truck was purchased to do. I just need to invest in a few more "protective" elements and some additional upgrades to make it all a bit better for the tasks.

Surprising how effective a lever the door turns out to be.
A compound set of curves to try to bend back. I think the hardest part will be pulling the fender off. All those plastic connectors to plastic parts before getting to the actual bolts and metal. Not looking forward to it at all.

Roll pan. Looking for prices.

Maybe I need to start lifting exercises again, but I'm finding my steering wheel to be quite huge and a pain in the area to turn a bazillion times for a 9-point turn.

Wrong type of joint for that.

Today I went out to find white specs of chipped off paint from the remodeling going on at the building behind us.

So I called the bylaw as they are littering, but letting the paint go everywhere, tomorrow morning I will be stopping in to see my supers (the company I rent from bought the building the work is being done on), and then I will be calling the Health and Safety board to have them look into seeing it its lead paint.

They have inconvienced me enough by this already, and when you involve my truck, youve pissed off the wrong person, my supers are quite clear about that, I parked my truck in the laneway blocking a lot of traffic because the asshat that plows pushed snow into my bedside, and their excuse was its because he can't lift his blade, not my f'n problem.

So here comes the bitchy side of Slade, the side that no one see's, because its not a good sight, and usually does not end up good for the person causing the grief.

Now what about that joint..

I went to canadian tire to get some plasti-dip for my rear bumper but they were all out of black... I said what the hell and picked up some niteshades, clear, and sandpaper and got them done tonight. They came out better then I expected and hides the ugly moisture in my left light. Now just have to tint the front windows, and dip the rear bumper and its all blacked out.

Try this and see if it works on your truck Andrew - I figured out how mine gets engaged when I don't want it even though it supposedly doesn't work:

Put your truck in park.  Hit the 4wd button.  Shut the truck off.  Start it back up and drive.  Mine engages (light still flashes) after that.  Clearly I still need to do some diagnosis on mine, but at least I figured out how it has ended up in 4x4 on dry pavement.  Seems like the button gets hit accidentally.

Installed the shocks I got from Ryan (rkj) after cleaning them up and giving them a coat of paint.  What an improvement!

Turns out the truck had stock Z71 shocks on the rear and a set of old silver Ranchos on the front.  The passenger one was totally shot.  The truck rides better, and the right front sits nearly level with the left now.

If it stops raining I am going to crank the TBs to get the proper stance again.

Removed the fender stripes cause they were scratched, faded and weathered. Not too sure how I like it without them since I wanted to do this awhile ago. What do you guys think? I might just put on the gloss black stripes I ordered from the grafxshop a long time ago. If I don't like the gloss I can get a new set of matte ones from a guy at work that does vinyl stuff.

Got the stripes back on, a little bit wider and in gloss black. I'm not really a fan of the gloss so I'll deal with them until I get sick of them then I'll get matte instead. Now I also have another issue to solve. I think one of my low beam ballasts crapped out. It flickers faintly like its trying to ignite but doesn't stay lit. Tried 20 times and won't ignite.

I gave mine a wash, removed the lower valence and fixed an exhaust rattle. Still have another rattle to deal with, really not sure where it's coming from though, only does it when it's cold and when you just take off from a light, sorta sounds like a diesel.

I like the black stripes on the fender like that too, contrasts with the hood as others have said. Matte black would look the best though.

the middle bar is the lock if you disconnect it from the lock cylinder and slide it to the left it should unlock.

Looks like my friend is going to buy my 50" lightbar to install on his snow cat. I worked out a deal that he'll buy me a Rigid SR2 30" hyperspot/flood  with his companies dime and I'll give him my 50 E series. That way I'll have a light bar that's more discreet but still bright and usable for my ladder rack and get rid of an older light bar that has some hours on it.

Also picking up an ARB touring roof top tent this week. I'm going to mount it on my ladder rack! Now track down a compressor and install an air hose somewhere on the bed.  :naughty:

Once I get all this done, time for rocksliders, some rust protection and fuel storage.

Went and priced out a 5.3L from a 2011 Canyon for a possible V8 swap, the guy wanted $5000 for it and everything to run it! A LS1 crate engine is that much, plus a brand new 5.3 is only $3700! Gonna see if I can get him down with this information. It would be nice to get it cause it'll just be plug and play minus a few things.

Talked to the parts guy at work about calling the wrecker for that 5.3 from the canyon. He quoted him $3200, which is way better than $5000. I'm just going to see if its cheaper to buy a 5.3 from a full size then buy all the required accessories, parts and harness from CPwire. This damn swap is going to be more expensive than I thought...

I am using these on my xtream. They work well with 10 pounds in them at all times it does not lift the rear of the truck. But does help with handling.

With the trailer hooked up I run about 25 pounds,this amount of air helps out with the ride.

Got the old spark plugs out this morning and the new ones in. The old ones were pretty bad, I have no clue when they were previously changed but the truck runs a lot smoother and accelerates easier. Very noticeable difference. I should have done it earlier! Waiting to see if my mileage gets any better also.

Also there was half of some plastic clip down in with the plug on the one closest to the cab. It was under the coil pack wedged right in between the wall and the plug!? It hasn't caused any codes but I got that crap out of there.

Swaped my brake pads last night. Could not get the caliper back on the drivers side, the top slide pin's boot was torn and the pin was seized to the bracket. I tried everything, even took a air chisel and tried to push it back in, no luck. Went to buy just the bracket and they don't sell just the bracket so I had to buy a whole new caliper. FML.

Jesse, I have my old calipers from when I did the 09 brake upgrade if you ever need them in the future. Still worked good when I pulled them off.

I've been trying to figure out what's rattling in my sub box, I thought it was port noise at first but its something more solid. It gets bad around 25-35 Hz.

How long are the wires that are hooked up from box to sub.

Post by: AJ1794 on August 17, 2014, 01:38:27 AM
They were a little long to begin with but I coiled up and zip tied the excess so it wouldn't make a rattle. I also put some foam on the bottom so it wouldn't make noise laying down.

I made ball joint spacers and installed new moog balljoints, flipped of course.

Thanks, at the time I was screwed, you should trade those in somewhere. The core fee was $85. I plan on doing the 09+ upgrade sometime in the future. I hate it when you do a simple task like changing brake pads and it turns into a effing headache because you need parts and your ride is down. Lucky I was able to bungee the caliper to my CBR.

The driver side ball joint was a pain to get out, even with a pickle fork. Probably took ten minutes longer than it should have haha. Passenger side fell right out. New ones went in like a breeze.

The hardest part was making the spacers. I have zero metal working experience. Treated myself to a new grinder and used a friends vice and got it done. They arent pretty but its not like you will ever see them!

So what do the spacers do ?
Title: Re: What did you do to your 355 today??
Post by: Muskoka on August 17, 2014, 03:10:31 PM
The flip along with spacers change the angle so when you crank the torsion bars you can get a bit more out of them and it helps prevent binding.

Got my efans in the truck. I slacked a little bit on the final details (wiring, switches, etc) because I needed it to be working for tomorrow, but over all I'm happy with how it turned out. Went for a rip and the butt dyno definitely sees improvements on throttle response. Well worth the ~$60 I spent on the whole deal.

Also finished up my front dif skid plate. The only thing left exposed is my trans, which is pretty high up anyways. I was mostly concerned with the dif and tcase because they hang pretty close to the frame rails.

10 lbs of torque low in the power and and 5 hp. I bought it for the low end torque gains for pulling my camper. The guys at 4 wheel parts in Burlington, Ontario said this one has a better throttle response time compared to the Jet performance TBS. It claims to add fuel mileage as well haven't noticed any gains but I haven't tuned my ECU yet. I am waiting until I get almost all the stuff I plan on doing over the next few months before spending the money and time to get a great tune done.

I'm not exactly sold on throttle body spacers for efi motors. If you're getting a dyno tune, would you be able to do two runs one with and one without the spacer?
