  1. Sounds like the pistons were not retracted. As far as cutting the rotors, in my experience rotors do not warp. They may build up high spots from pad material that can be machined or sanded down down. Lou
  2. You could always get a manual sliding one. A bit inconvenient, but it will open. The window in my truck is manual,. but I have a regular cab? Lou
  3. Clazzio seat covers are available in perforated leather. I have 'em on my 2011 Silverado. Had them for 8 years now, still look like new. Lou
  4. The Silverado & Sierra 1500 long bed has a tank capacity of 34 gallons. That tank may be retrofittable to the regular bed truck. Lou
  5. You may want to check to see if the tank from a 1500 Long Bed will fit a regular bed truck. Lou
  6. Is accessorizing your truck something that you are currently interested and/or investing in? - Yes IF YES: What is your to top priority when choosing accessories for your truck? (Quality/Price/Look/Reviews) - All three, of course. IF NO: Why not? (No time/money, inexperience, no vehicle) Would you purchase something because it's priced cheaper, regardless of negative reviews, or options of higher-end, better quality products? (YES or NO) - NO! Would you purchase an accessory purely based on how it looks? Even if that means the product does not work well or may not work at all? - NO! Lou
  7. 1958 Impala with skirts! Before they went nuckin futz in 59! Lou
  8. I'm a BIG believer in AGM batteries, I'm running one in my ISF and one in my Silverado. The one in the ISF is a Bosh from Pep Boys. The one in the truck is from NAPA. Lou
  9. ^^^^Yes, hence my question. I have never bounced off the rev limiter in my truck, but have hit the speed limiter a handful of times. Lou
  10. Are you sure it was the rev limiter and not the speed limiter? Lou
  11. When I was in high school, not many kids had cars, just the rich ones. I remember one student who had a $100 a week allowance and a brand new 1955 chevy Bel Air convertible. Needless to say, he had his share of girlfriends. There wasn't even school busses when I was in High School. We took city busses. I didn't get my first car, until I got out of basic training in the USAF in 1957. It was a 1950 Mercury Coupe. Lou
  12. Not really, my first car, a 1950 Mercury had push button start, but to actuate the button you needed to turn the ignition on with a key. I remember my dad's 1948 Nash having the starter button under the clutch pedal. I think most cars adopted ignition keys sometime in the late 1930s. I think the first car to use the ignition key to actually start the engine was the 1949 Chrysler. My car, a Lexus ISF, has push button start. It's really very handy not having to pull the keys out of my pocket to unlock the doors and startup the car. Unlike my truck. Pull out the keys to activate the remote and then insert the key to start. Push button much more convenient. Lou
