I had installed some new Cabelas seat covers last week. They have a velcro opening on the side I was able to access the pull tab for the flip-seat. I found a couple cheap carabiners(sp?) around the house and attached them to the pull tabs to make it easier to flip the seat forward.

I have heard good things about Zone lift kits they are made by BDS and BDS stuff has a lifetime warranty so I assume they take pride in their "sister company"

Replaced the exhaust header today.






You can see the crack in it.





Old vs New stainless header





So along with the cracked header the old gasket was rotted out.



6 hours after starting I had a new header! Big thanks to Jerry and figuring out that my intake was not lined up right!

Yesterday I changed oil, plugs, wires, air filter, cleaned the cowl drain (ewwww)

Today I am flushing the coolant, cleaning the engine (trying to diagnose if I have an oil leak, or if the previous owner just didnt know how to add oil and dumped it all over), and if I have time before the Pats game, bedlining the headlight bezels and mirrors.

Tomorrow going to the registry to get it on the road officially... That's going to be the hard part.
