What kind of sadistic bastard...

designs an automobile using both british and metric nuts and bolts. I took the truck's dashboard apart so that I could remove the stock cassette deck and put my Blaupunkt in. I managed to get most of it done, and then nearly drive myself crazy trying to figure out how to remove the last two bolts. None of my sockets seemed to fit. Then it hit me. It's metric. The rest of the bolts aren't because it is an American vehicle and we don't care about the standards the rest of the world uses... except for the last two bolts that is. Those two are metric.

Sigh...

Anyway, at least now I have the other stereo in. I can play CDs again, and more importantly, I can connect my iPod. Yay! The world is good.

I also got a new steering wheel cover. I think I'll hold off on the $700 custom steering wheel.

Things to do still:

  • Take the title transfer forms in.
  • Order vanity plates
  • Get the Tailgate handle fixed
  • Put in custom sunscreen
  • Possibly get matching seat covers to the steering wheel cover
  • Decide on other custom emblems and decals
  • Find bikini models to stand around in front of truck
  • Get custom license plate lights
  • Get custom license plate frames
  • Get monster truck tires
  • Get CB
  • Get custom mudflaps
  • Get running boards to aid in getting in and out of truck once monster truck tires are on.
  • Get custom pedals
  • Install turbo boost

Note that I still have not painted a confederate flag on the roof... I can live.
