meant to add on previous post that in my cleaning escapade that this USW aluminum tool box and these aluminum bed cap covers are not "cleanable" guess i will have to repaint to bring the shine back to them. Machine polish, buff and all that didnt work on them well at all.

This past weekend i added something interesting to the truck just to have something to do.

chains attached to the tie downs under the tool box that i hate reaching under to get too when hauling stuff. 1.5' on each side.
chains.jpg


going to superglue a magnet on the inside corner of the tool box to keep the chain even more accessible, or something.

painted the Engine cover and the fuse box cover.. was going to do the air aid intake tube too but ran out of paint and these really need two more coats anyway.

red covers.jpg


changed the spark plugs and wires at 90k as well. this was so much easier than i anticipated to do.

changed at 90k.jpg


also tried solution finish to do some trim restoring and im very impressed with the product, looking forward to seeing how long it lasts.

And i cannot forget my biggest helper when im out piddling around with truck stuff, shes always out there when i am.

and what is this going to turn into i wonder.....

Looks like it is going to be hornier....haha. I wouldn't mind adding some volume to mine either. May have to look into that.

Looking at your chains for the lower cab tie downs...that is a good idea. I also can't use mine with the roll box that the tonneau cover rolls into. I do however have the bull rings installed in the upper bed slots and use those very frequently.

It looks as though you have a bed insert and those holes are blocked...perhaps they can be cut out...

They work pretty slick. They also have the fixed hoops, but I liked the look of the ones I pictured...and I also have them in the stake pockets so they all match.

I think I may be able to convince my buddy to buy a set so I can try them before I commit. But excited to see your review.
