I washed my truck today and finally took some pictures of it.









I've already put over 10,000 miles on it since March.

2005 Silverado LS
5.3L, automatic, 2WD
3.23 gears

Its not much, but it gets the job done.

The only bad part about it is a little damage out back. It was there when I bought it. I'm considering getting a painted bumper for it anyway, so I'm not overly worried about it.




Also, the stupid stock CD player stopped working so all I've got to listen to is the radio. That sucks since there isn't a lot of stations worth listening to down here and the ones that are worth listening to don't come in very well.

...and just because I've been meaning to get some pictures of my bike...

1990 Kawasaki 454 LTD

Its a little beat up since it sat for about 4 years, outside, in the rain. But I'll see what I can do with it.





I hate this seat, so its got to go.





The gas tank is full of crap, so I'm going to have to work on that.



A buddy of mine gave me the stock solo seat off of his Harley Dina, so I'm going to get it fitted on here. It looks much better than that shitty step-up seat.

It was just back like that because I had been vacuuming it out and didn't take the 2 seconds to fix it since I was only driving down the street about a 1/4 mile to take these shots.

Yeah, I know. The S10 I had before my Silverado was black. As was the Jimmy I had in highschool and back then I ran around on a lot of dirt roads...clean wasn't an option.

Kind of a tight fit when I pull it into the garage far enough to shut the door.

Plugs weren't to bad, but those stock wires are a bitch to get off...at least more so than others I've done.

If nothing else, at least I added some color under the hood.

No...they seemed like they were made to the wires and I've never heard of doing such a thing.

Besides, I don't think they would fit on those Taylors, anyway.

I always re-use mine. But you're right they don't look like they would fit the new wires.

I'm pretty sure they wouldn't. The thought never even crossed my mind though because I seen ones on-line that came like that when you ordered them and the stockers look like the caps were attached to the wires.
