  1. I can't even imagine not using my hose to dump my camper. Of course the outlet is about 3 feet off the ground when on the camper. I guess for a travel trailer it would be much closer to the ground. However, given the time it would take to clean up the mess I would think that getting the hose out would be much easier. Certainly the Guy sounds like someone that is looking for the path of least resistance. Did he not even clean up/wash down the mess??? I would really lose it had that been the case.
  2. I know a guy.... I think he can share the file with me in Fusion 360. I'll give it a shot.
  3. Wow! I have never seen that before and consider my self lucky. I use the one in Longview down by the bridge a lot. It’s a free, public one. It’s in a shady part of town but I have never had any trouble there. Although, the homeless camp is just across the street. Seen some people doing dishes with the water there. I also hate people I don’t know.
  4. Lowest I’ve been is 5 mile DTE on the Dodge with the trailer in tow. I was sweating bullets.
  5. No, I think that is mostly necessary with clean metal. I think rusty and sand blasted steel seems hold the paint pretty well. If you front knuckles are still coated, all I did with those is wire wheel them. I didn’t have the sand blaster back then.
  6. With a closed loop oxygen sensor it will be great!. It's about time.
  7. Yeah, I took them off for now. I needed to get the truck out of the shop for some other work I need to get done. I will paint the traction bars and put them back on eventually.
  8. Air bags are installed. And now she is back on all 6. Two things left. Bed the brakes and paint the traction bars. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  9. The new bags showed up. The axle brackets will work fine but I needed to make new upper brackets. Here is a technique I picked up for transferring holes when they are blind so you can’t use a transfer punch. Your welcome![emoji1787] Now I’m waiting for paint to dry.

  10. Yeah, that is a good point. I have never taken that tire down. Maybe I should. LOL!
  11. Got a bit more done. The front lower links are painted. This is a before and after of one of the rear shocks. Here is a picture of the rear end now. I’m waiting on a shock boot and the new air bags haven’t showed up yet. Just need to bleed the brakes. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  12. I have only seenPOR 15 ina brush on application. The top coat POR 15 comes in a can but the good rust proofing stuff is only brush on that I know of.
  13. Well, about 3 years after my Mom got her Earthroamer, the back steps were rusting really bad. Had to be the cheapest powder coat they make. I took them a part, sand blasted them and painted them with a POR 15 then with a coat of the POR 15 top coat for UV protection. They still look like brand new 4 years later.
  14. I got in big trouble. LMAO! But it works great!
  15. How do the front knuckles on your truck look now? When I did the ball joint, I pretty sure I painted both ends of the front axle on your truck with the same POR 15. I have wondered how it has held up?
  16. we scrubbed them with a bristled brush and Castro’s Super Clean then rinsed with water. That was it. Then painted them with POR 15 semi gloss black with a paint brush.
  17. I’m not concerned. The way I sealed to calipers using a metal sleeve over the banjo bolts and the copper washers. Also using glass bead. The caliper goes through way worse being mounted on the truck. The trick is to make sure the pistons move freely when collapsing the calipers.
  18. Front brakes are all assembled. All the wheels are painted and one front link is half painted. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  19. Here is the sand blaster I have. I’m not a fan of the name but these things are no joke. It has 75lbs of glass bead in it at the moment. Also I snapped a picture of the front calipers all ready to be installed. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
