    window glass rubbers arrived.seemed like quality rubbers from classy chevy .pulled the drivers door and filled the bottom door skin seam with tiger seal seam sealer.excellent stuff.used some masking tape to keep the drainage open either side.the two screw threads to hold the door panel in the lockrail were in poor condition.drilled and tapped 2 aluminum blocks and araldited in situ.no welding no burnt paint.the 3 middle threads in the bottom of the door cill are stripped.so they will get the aluminum block treatment tomorrow.nearly there with the door repairs for now..purchased 2 door latches with the helper springs.i had the springs seperate but couldnt find information on how to fit the springs i have attached picture of the spring in case anyone is in the same predicament.second pic shows the reinforcment and the threaded blocks in the lockrail hedge and drivers door 005.JPG hedge and drivers door 007.JPG

    had a close call last week.while walking under the back of the truck i discovered some loose bolts on the leaf spring.rubbers were gone.got some suitable rubbers cut for the job.drilled the heads of the mounting bolts and lockwired them this time around.had a little refresh on utube.took no chances and loctited them as well.something id been meaning to do with a while.done now!

    replacing the wheel bearings is the perfect oppertunity to replace the old rotors with new ones.old are pitted and worn down by 2.6mm compared to the new ones. most of the wear is on the inside of the old rotor on the drivers side .

    Check to make sure the caliper slide is lubricated.
