Cadence Marie is doing well and growing like a weed.

Restoring the Rangie.
Did a bunch of work this last weekend on the 93 LWB.

Replaced the head lamps with some Hellas. They are sweet. German engineering in da house! I love that commerical for VWs. Check it out.

Heater fan resistor.
Replaced the resistor for the fan. It’s located in the vent cowl. Nice place to keep it cool but
a horrible place due to water and rust and such. The replacement was no picnic. But wasn’t as bad as I expected it to be. I think I’d recommend anyone tearing out the dash to replace it when the have it all apart. The instructions say you can pull the plug out through the hole but that was not the case.
I’ve finished the write up on the Heater Fan Resistor. Check it out.

Brake Calipers.
I have the brake calipers off. They are soaking in a bucket of diesel in the garage. I want to paint them but not sure how that will go yet. The kit is coming in this week to replace the seals and such. You can check out my progress on the Brake Caliper page.

Swivel Seals.
I ordered the swivel seals. I’m not looking forward to tearing that apart again but it must be done. Maybe this next weekend I will tear them down. OR at least one of them as they are no fun to work on. You can see some of that work here on the Swivel Seal page.
