Okay so at the time of writing this post my truck still needs to be fixed. She's still drivable, but she's a rough rider at the moment. Let's shoot the shit...
I'll cut to the chase, I'm a shitty vehicle owner. I've only had two.. One I ran into the ground it wouldn't start anymore, my truck, I'm doing better taking care of it, but I ain't anywhere near perfect. you can't even see the passenger side floor. Pretty bad right? I'll take care of at least that either today or this week, whenever the fuck it stops raining for 5 minutes...
Anyway, back to my truck. She needs a new clutch, shocks, ball joints and tire rods, and a new belt and tensioner for the motor. I've got all the parts, probably just need to get the tire rod ends and that's all that's left for now, not sure yet... Now when I bought these parts I spent about $900 at the auto parts store. I wish I didn't have to, but my truck is 17 years old and her shocks are still stock the belt and tensioner is still stock from what I know of, The clutch has been changed out once or twice in the lifetime of this truck, once that I know of, but she needs all this work done because she was the last thing my dad gave me before he died, so she's near and dear to my heart. Although if you look at her you'd probably think the contrary to that statement.
A few weeks ago I tried to get her a car wash, but I spent $30 or some stupid shit like that and she didn't even get clean....I should probably spend the $150-$200 and get her all nice and purtied up. But there's like I said, I gotta clean the mess that's in it already. But yea I've been keeping her up with oil changes, alignments and some other basic needs, but she's gettin a bit older and needs a new dress, a boob job and a new pair of shiny red shoes. lol. But in all seriousness, she's getting to be a bit of a rough ol' gal. time to make her look like she came off the used car show room floor!
There are plenty of other things about her that I eventually want to get fixed, like get a new bed for my truck because there's a big old gouge, dent, and crease in it from where i backed into a mailbox... Eh hem... A Brick mailbox... The passenger mirror needs a new piece of glass, need new window tint, want to fix the sound system, I pretty much damn near want to rebuild this girl from the ground up and make her nice, and fancy like! She's a good 03 Silverado and if I put about another grand or two into her I can have her lookin spiffy in no time! Save up some more money to get a nice paint job done and bam, nice truck!
Well this was a bullshit fun post for the mid end of the month. Hope you enjoyed reading it! :) Have a good one hunny, ya'll come back now, y'hear!
