If you were to use a shop like Maaco the cost for a single-coat synthetic enamel paint job ranges from $300 to $900, with an average of $566. A mid-level paint job with a higher-quality paint and additional prep work like removing rust and dents can range from $1,000 to $3,500 with an average of $1,316.You can save a lot of money if you do most of the prep work yourself like a good cleaning and degreasing, removal of parts, trim etc,etc that would need to be taped off if left on and so on.
SG Lou replied to TEWNCfarms's topic in 1999-2013 Silverado & Sierra 1500My 03 1500 and 04 Vette, both purchased new have been doing it since day one and still doing it to this day. No problems what so ever, other then a the annoying "slap" until warmed up.
My sensor crapped out as well...needle pegged at 80 psi. I was all over the top of the engine trying to reach the damn thing which to me is almost impossible. I just may have to pull the manifold...as much as I don't want to although I have heard and read that it isn't that hard to do.
As it was said to me...... " Well it looks easy on YouTube"...LOL I replaced the stepper motors in my 03 Silverado along with the cluster lights to LED's but when it came to the HVAC unit I BUTCHERED it up. No big deal, I'll get another one....and I screwed that one up too ! Along comes member Cody7 to save the day. I sent him my HVAC unit and he managed to salvage the circuit board that I screwed up and made it work. If you want to do a LED conversion and you're unsure about doing it yourself then give Coby7 a shout ! The MAN KNOWS HIS STUFF ! Thanks Agian Coby7
This just happened to my 03 Silverado 2 days ago but it was the left directional signal that wouldn't work. After checking and confirming the bulbs were ok ,I got it working again by, removing the upper and lower cover to the steering column, unplugged and removed the stalk assembly and sprayed liberal amount of contact cleaner along side the stalk where it enters the housing. Exercise the switch and it was enough to clean the carbon build up on the contacts. Reinstalled the stalk it it good as new.

Will do !

Replacing standard bulbs with LED 5mm blue for surrounding areas, 3mm white for the hot/cold indication. The whole reason for me asking for the pinout and battery info is so I can power it up to make sure everything is lit before i put it all together and install it.
Thanks Brother ! I still want to power it up via battery to make sure everything is ok before i install it.
