Started Saturday morning off with getting her ready! She got a oil and filter change, new impeller, re-installed the heater, and finally finished wiring the new Exile 65m in boats.
Ash gave me a helping hand and monitored the water so I could nose around and make sure everything was good to go.
With the lift on the truck, and the tires sticking out an inch past the body I knew I would have more rocks flying than I did with the ford. So I dug around on the net and studied all the mud flap systems out, including Mike showing me what his were and decided I needed to just make my own how I wanted them. Built these Friday night and painted them Saturday. I'mm in the process of getting some stainless steel to make some weights for the bottom of them. They need a little more than just the weight of the rubber to not blow back as much.
We had pretty crappy weather Sunday, 20+ mph winds and cloudy as all get out, but we were headed that way regardless!

Only thing I noticed is the blower. It kicks on, but it has developed some form of growl to go with it. I didn't get to check it out when we were out there, so I will do it this week. It acts like it is moving air but something is trying to restrict it. Should be a simple fix.06 Supra 24 Gravity Games
