yay, i've never been so happy to see it! the dealership it was towed to this time turned out to be really good. the mechanic and service manager knew their shit. turns out my trans had been running hot for a while and eventuall blew a seal and grenaded. they put in a brand new 4L60E, because there was nothing left of the inside of my old one. got it all bolted into place, cleared the codes and took it for a test drive. few miles down the road the water temp gauges goes the whole way to the right and steam sprays out from under the hood. yup, the radiator failed. coolant everywhere. they got a new radiator in record time and bolted that in too. no idea why it failed, but the service manager agrees it is cursed. the new transmission runs pretty good but i still don't like it. the engine dips down to 400rpm with the A/C on and is sluggish from a stop. just glad to have it back... :evil:

i spent the last 3 hours stripping the sierra. man that was a fucking adventure.

is it possible to swap speakers in a NBS without removing the door panels? it is now :D i feel so bad for whoever gets this thing next, it's totally ruined. as you may recall i was having problems with door rattles. pass side was the worst. i tried everything, sound deadener, tearing it apart, etc. finally got a can of triple expanding foam and just filled the whole inner door up. no more rattles, but the panel is on there for good. i had to break the panel and pry it up with a 24" prybar to get my components out. i wasn't going to trade with a $200 set of speakers in the doors no matter what. i cut the wiring off the stock speakers right at the plugs so i had to solder new speaker wire directly to the tinsel leads. some of the solder burned into the cones, god i forgot how bad the stock speakers sound. the rear speakers went without issue, and though i destroyed one of the front doors, all my good kappas came out unharmed :cheers:

so then i removed the mudflaps and flares, no biggie there. nerf bars were another story. they came off OK, but when reinstalling the body mount bolts, i set my IR 1/2 impact on the lowest setting and torqued until the bolt almost stopped turning. 3 of them went on fine, 4th one snapped. none of the driver's door switches work, no power windows or locks. all the plugs are tight? i didn't feel like fucking with it tonight. keyless entry doesn't work, A/C is leaking water all over the floor. it's going to be hot tomorrow so imma have to roll into the stealership with the pass window down and leave the ignition on so the odometer is displayed instead of "service air bag" :evil: i almost feel bad getting rid of this thing, but i have to do what i have to do.

good news for you is i have a small pile of stuff that will soon be for sale.
