This is my build i have going on. This is going to be a long haul on this one. I have several projects to fix before it will even pass inspection to get it plated. I fixed the blower motor fuse blowing and tested it tonight. The truck has 344k on the engine so a rebuild will be coming soon.
i also need to fix a door blend problem. I get all the airflow out of the defrost vents. After all the mechanical come the body work which is what i do.

Yeah it still runs really well for the mileage but im pretty sure i have a intake leak. Vacuum stuff isnt working like they are supposed to. I will post pics of my new rims tomorrow. Im going to have them put on because i have no where to store them and i dont want them stolen.
