    On the topic of ripping interiors apart. I just received the I insulation to cover the firewall on the suburban. Will be taking most of the dash apart. Trying to reduce the engine noise. Also will be adding under dash cover panels.

    installed battery cables. Upgraded from 4 gauge to 2 gauge. WOW! Before I did, I could bump the key and it acted like the motor had bad spots/brushes here and there. Now I can't bump it w/o it starting.....every single time. LOL was actually pissin' me off cuz I wanted to keep bumping it w/o it starting.

    I had to flip the battery around cuz the positive was about 6" too short. Yeh yeh....I know that's what she said lol. With the battery flipped around, I no longer have the positive close to the radiator support. Good for those "too many beverages" moments when you take the positive off first and short the wrench to ground.

    Yesterday I finally got my power steering pump leak(s) fixed... I think! The canned ham style and the tank part had a big dent from...
    I can't believe I must have did this but looks like I may have stuck Mr. Prybar inbetween the tank and bracket to tighten the belt and this
    of course dented the can compromising the seal. I also discovered after removing the can that the high pressure line in rubber seal was buggered.
    Took longer to bleed the thing than change the seals and fix the dented can. Now I have to hit the carwash with some degreaser and clean the mess from a year (hate to admit it) of leaking and adding oil. Oh well it helped keep some dust down in my back alley!

    I only run my drivers side. When i first got my square the po didn't tell me the passenger side tank leaked. I didnt think anything different cause the passenger side pump ran when the key was turnes but not the driver side. Well long story short i watered the grass with 5 gallons of fuel. :banghead::flame::flamingdevil::Plugged:
