Re: What did you do to your rig today?

I'm going to test it and if I have to I was thinking about running the ext speaker connection to the aux on my radio.

Replaced my brake shoes and this time put new drums on as the old ones had a pretty bad ridge. Gotta hand it to Nissan, the 20 year old drums are probably still usable with a mild machining. Had a leaking wheel cylinder and it contaminated the shoes. Also replaced a blown shock.

The pedal still feels like poop (pretty sure I adjusted the drums right), and the parking brake cable is seized so I just cut it off and didn't hook it back up for now, it was rattling against the frame.

Nasty:

Let me know how that works. My future ideas consider a new facade for the pocket ahead of my shifter with a cutout for the CB. The AUX in is right there for me.

Will do, going to try and tackle it this afternoon. I could also just cut a hole in the plastic that sits below the radio. The angle it is on you'd never see it to be honest.

Well I almost got it in. Have to trim the aftermarket radio bezel thing, that’s fine. So far the speaker is pretty loud, I don’t think hearing it on the trail will be an issue.

Are you going to forego the aux connection?

For now, it seems fine the way it is.

Attempted to replace the collector gaskets on my headers. What a pain. Couldn't get 1 of the bolts completely off so I just loosened it enough so there was a gap. Cut the gasket where that bolt hole was and slid it in.

Ah yeah I have the same problem with the pathfinder. Don't drive it enough and the battery freezes if not left on a trickle charger. I got one of these to test my batteries:

we are dealing with that up at the cottage with the big deep cell batteries they got severly discharged this winter and may not make it through the spring.
