    Thanks!
    Anxious to pick her up tonight.

    Only down side is that the chrome strip on the back of the hood did not survive being taken off.

    :(

    Changed the oil tonight - PF1218 and Castrol 15W40 GTX Diesel oil .

    I did not put in zinc additive this time.

    More oil slut experimentation !

    Broke off the mirror while cleaning the inside last night. Entered the truck in a car show this upcoming Saturday, and now I have a loose mirror. o_O

    On the bright side, the truck looks a lot better with a fresh wash, and cleaned interior, tires & wheels. Tonight I need to wipe down the engine bay, finish the inside, and do as much waxing as I can get done after work. Tomorrow will be the final touches.

    Just read an article on my phone about new oils.

    In an effort to reduce oil drag on 2020 and up vehicles, the bearing clearances are much tighter and new oils like 0W-16 are to be used. They cannot and should be used for 2019 vehicles and below.

    It seams that oils are becoming year dependent. Gone are the days of it's just oil.
