That's not something I'd say in public, if it were me doing such. :-)

Received my exhaust manifold replacement from Rock Auto. Inspected the shipping box and it had a small hole punched outward. So that led me to believe the mounting ear was trying to escape from the box again. So I documented it and cut the "Rock Auto" security tape and the SKP manifold box also had a hole punched outward. This led me to believe even stronger that this part was also damaged like the last one I received and sent it right back to them. So I cut the clear 2" tape from the SKP product box and gave the manifold a good visual inspection. Along with a "push" test. Meaning I was physically pushing on all of the mounting ears to see if any ears had a crack and would break under finger pressure. All seemed good after about 4 push tests. But tomorrow it gets a very close up visual test using a flashlight to find any cracks.

If all goes well. I will install it on Saturday. My truck sounds like a horrible mess with that giant ass crack leaking stinky fumes. So embarrassing.

Today I picked up a camper shell! It's a high-top, and actually for a hardbody! Woohoo! Best of all, it was free!

Downside is a busted out side window (and the window frame is a bit mangled) and detached rear hatch window, but hey... it was free, so I can't ask for much better!

Anyone have advice or can point me in a direction for camper window replacement?

Also, I made some eyelids for the front, change it up a little. I have yet to figure out how to get pictures posted, but when I do, I'll get you guys pictures!

Nice...

Check RV windows. Got an RV dealer in your area? They are usually lighter and you may find the exact size you need.

Replaced both front brake rotors and pads, replaced master cylinder, and flushed clutch fluid. I don't think brake fluid is supposed to look like this and I'm pretty sure the clutch master cylinder isn't supposed to be that dirty, either.

Saturday: Chased a "no charge" gremlin on the truck. Turns out the LED in the cluster doesn't offer enough resistance to cause the alternator to energize.
Sunday: Junkyard run. Found the black trim that goes on top of the chrome front bumper and an AIV box that doesn't look like metallic Swiss cheese.
