LOL and ruin all that hard work? Turns out I put the exhaust clamps on in the entirely wrong spot when I initially installed my Borla GM system. Took the entire system out, put it back, tweaking some hangers along the way, ensuring the tips were clear of the box protector (I AM SICK of replacing that damn thing due to my incompetence!), and getting the clamps secured in the proper site. Now the system is MUCH more stable, feels solid like the factory system, and stays put! Initial readings indicate my fuel economy is rebounding as well, so perhaps I identified the source of my mysterious fuel economy deficit since April (which is when I initially installed the system). Caught a big rock in the bumper cap somewhere along the state highways I've been cruising. Popped it off and took it into the dealer to patch and cover the ding the bodyshop missed in late June. We'll get a nice comparison of dealer vs. private bodyshop. Hope to have it back tomorrow, the open road is calling my name!
CadillacLuke24 posted a topic in Off-TopicI have a new project. It's not on my truck, so I didn't feel it was right for the build thread, as suggested by others. Since it's with my truck, I figured I'd go here. Due to the wide open spaces of Wyoming, what I feel is some sweet scenery, and the expansive network of state highways to try and reach all of the state, I compiled a list of all of Wyoming's currently active state highways, as well as roads that still exist but are no longer classified as state highways. Got a nice list of 212, and have covered 44 of them already. Was wondering if anyone else has done anything similar.
CadillacLuke24 started following 2014-2017 Chevrolet Silverado Wheels, New Project...Not on the truck, but with the truck, What's in your emergency truck tool box? and and 2 others
Nitrile gloves, Fast Orange wipes, Heavy Duty Shop Towels, Flashlight, knife, Multi-tool, blanket, umbrella, and a phone charger. Like muddkatt, since I drive a Chevy, I don't need to Fix Or Repair Daily I know stuff comes up, but generally with my maintenance habits I'd be shocked if something does beyond a flat tire. Even in that case, I take the Avoid all unidentified objects in the road policy, and that fares well.
CadillacLuke24 replied to RyanbabZ71's topic in Off-TopicNothing most would consider anything special, a 96 DeVille. She's my first car though, had her for 9 years and I love that thing.
Nope, my dad is the park king LOL 18 months and I'm up to 40,728 miles at the moment. Work is a mere 3 miles away, so commuting doesn't add much, and I can ride my bike if need be. I love covering state highways, dirt roads, just driving to drive. Clyde is a HOOT to drive. When I get my Cadillac back online I won't drive as much, but I won't park him. Resale isn't a concern, as I won't be selling him
https://wyoming.craigslist.org/pts/6303871857.html In good condition, tires have plenty of life left on them. I'd prefer not to ship them, but if you really want them I'm willing to arrange shipping if need be. Make me an offer!
Damn Ryan I need to detail my truck like you do. Got him washed yesterday, had a little off-road adventure that was Z71 worthy. 4HI and the Ranchos did quite nicely. Wash turned out well, but I got water trails from the door handles. Oh well, will likely wash again in a couple weeks, my ideal wash schedule is every other week or every third week, weather permitting. A month back, while looking for a rattle, I scuffed up my right rear door panel a tad, and busted the lower front bolt hole on the front panel. Though I glued the bolt hole, I couldn't live with that or the scratches, so I got new door panels. They look great and it even sounds a tad quieter in the cab! Replaced my box protector for like the 7th time. My Borla exhaust was misaligned just so that the tips contacted the protector and started to melt it. Gave the tips a nice shove during my wash, and that seemed to be the ticket. Alignment is good, and clearance is MUCH better.
CadillacLuke24 replied to RyanbabZ71's topic in Off-TopicNot a bad lookin' Mustang...bet the truck looks a tad better though. Almost got the control arm on my Cadillac. The parts are a comin!
Yuck dude! Hope they can get their crap in a sack I was cruising around downtown checking out the traffic for the upcoming eclipse. As I was making a turn, I noticed a striking blonde making more than a passing glance at my clean Silverado. While that's not why I got Clyde in the first place, I was enjoying it
That stinks. Out here Sinclair seems to be a big fan of E0. The Big D (D must stand for Dweeb) Sinclair stations mark it up 60 cents a gallon over regular, but Hat Six (I believe they are Am Best affiliated) only wants 45 cents. That, along with their sweet station and 10 cents off I get with my Sinclair card, has me sold
