Well not sure what prompted me to, but I cleaned up the 42 pin connector and reloomed it checking out for damaged or chafed wires (didnít see any and I am not experiencing any of the known issues that damaged wires would cause) figured that adding the extra layer of wire loom would help protect the wires from damage.


also on a personal note the family is getting over the loss we had recently.

well after being sick I decided now was oddly a good as any time to clean out the truck some, and then also replaced the long missing driver side turn housing assy, so that is back to normal...........well as normal as able and then replaced the two front turn signal bulbs while I had it all open, so yea starting the process of rehabing the truck, also may order a set of tails soon to fix those up.

Well finally got my order from 1A Auto and have to say was impressed with them, definatly will be using them again for my parts needs, had a minor issue with my order (I only needed 1 door handle and some how managed to get charged for two and sent two because I ordered 2) called them up and got it sorted out real quick and with no fuss at all.

anyways got the door handle installed, took all of 20 minutes to do after I was able to break the stupid hand nut (or what ever it was called) loose.
