I fixed the rear main seal on Sunday. I found out what that loud chatter was. It was the starter not pulling back far enough and the teeth were rubbing on the flywheel. New starter fixed the problem.

Now I get to deal with non functioning electronics... I hate electrical work on these vehicles.

Blinkers, brake lights, reverse lights, and headlights. Park lights work.

Close Eric, I want it dark enough to show off all the stainless steel hardware that it will have, but not too dark that the black fender flares get lost in the color. Does that make sense?

I don't have the shine I wanted. I don't think I put enough clear on it, can I clear over it again?
