  1. Read this topic, if it sits for a few days moisture cause the grounds to not make good enough contact. I have added double grounds and cleaned up the connections. Works most of the time but every once an awhile it happens.
  2. Taken out of the box for photos never installed. $400 plus shipping. Comes with the Bowtie. I'm in Washington State if you want to pick up.
  3. I have a 06 SS grille, oem new never installed with bowtie. $400 plus shipping. If not I will post in the for sale section soon. Thanks
  4. I did everything at once and pulled the wheels, new spark plugs, new shocks, greased the fittings, added the Arraid filter and snorkel. and cleaned.
  5. The ss clone, repainted the front bumper cover and some of the side cladding, replaced hood latch, add hose clamps. On the 03 SS I did all the fluid changes in the drivetrain, replace the oil sensor, it was malfunctioned and leaking.
  6. Anyone have drivers cladding in black, in nice shape no damage. And a passenger front bed cladding in black. Or trade a red front bed for a black front bed cladding. Also a long shot would be a nice front bumper cover in black. Anyone used Sameday on eBay?
  7. Thats good news, mine has had a couple of times the gauges didn't work. This is a grounding issue not a gauge issue. So I added more grounding strap from the negative post to the engine block. And this summer I will clean up all the grounding frame connections. Post some pic of the 59. I'm doing a 68 charger. I'll try to post some pics.
  8. Working on my other projects just don't have time to drive. Up for sale, I know I'm asking alot but try to put one together. Needs paint. https://seattle.craigslist.org/oly/cto/d/olympia-chevy-truck-c10shortbox/6873367304.html
  9. If I remember there is a plastic coating over the top, I have never tried to peel it off I just replaced them with new and used there bad one in the winter.
  10. Did you get out a beat his ass?
  11. Hello, happy new year to you, do you still have your SS?
  12. I think you can pull the fuse, but I wanted to be sure it was completely disconnected, but if you know you have a bad cluster that the first place to start. If you read my other thread about reduce power problems I'm having as, I'm going to be doing the Big 3 also and adding more ground straps. This spring I will clean and recoat all my ground connections.
  13. Shawn, mine did something similar, I did the same and pulled the radio fuse and it seemed that was the problem, then it came back and it is probably in the cluster, take apart the dash and unplug the cluster for a few days to see it goes away. If it does you will need your cluster rebuilt. I had gmgaugeguy.com rebuild mine and now no problems. I've read all kind of threads on here and the other truck forums and that seem like the more likely suspect. Clay
  14. I've looked a these, how was the fit?
  15. I use a 7mm ratchet wrench. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00UBG4WMU/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  16. So after this happen I've clean off the grounding connection up under the headlights, and the motor to firewall, and the code has not come back but when I let my truck sit for a few days and I start it up the cluster is in the other languages, and I have to reset it. For the last month its been wet and probably condensation on connections. This spring I will add other ground connections and check the throttle connection.
  17. Ok I had this happen, I have read alot of threads on this. Mine happen on when the weather changed and a lot of condensation was in the air. i tighten and checked all the grounds. Our trucks are getting old and more corrosion on the ground connections are happening so we need to keep them clean. Got the code of P1516 and reset it and it hasn't come back. My truck sat for about 4 days when this happen and since that I have been starting and running it for a 5 minutes everyday or every other day and no it won't repeat itself. Anyway I am monitoring it weekly. Here is a good article if you have the problem. https://www.fixmyoldride.com/Chevrolet-reduced-engine-power.html
  18. I have 2 Silverados one an SS and the other a shortbox clone with the 6.0 motor also, both programed. The Silverado SS extended cab the fans hardly come on, the short box comes on most of the time if I let it sit for a while but not driving. I think mine start up at about 210 degrees.
  19. If you have the door panels, switches and all the wiring harness if should be plug and play, your fuse box will have the slots for the wiring harness.
  20. Mine is just starting on the clear coat peel. I waxed it really good to make it through the winter. Yes I did a street racing in my time also and I look back that nothing bad happen. The Charger will have a 440 4 speed when I'm done. I ask around on the wheel.
  21. Ray, It been a long ride, sad to see the truck go, both of us have been here since 2003, I'm too attached to mine with 137,000 on the clock plus the short box is done but needs a decent paint job, I might sell it if I can get a decent offer on it. I have 2 Mopars, one is a complete 68 Roadrunner and a 68 Charger I am just getting ready to start on the sheet metal repair, should keep me busy for the next couple of years.
  22. Did the wind noise fix on the back windows. Heres the link at ebay if you don't know about theses. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Wind-Noise-fix-for-2000-02-2004-2006-07-chevy-GMC-vent-window-latch-link/282024612006?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649
  23. I thought it was doable, but never done it. Good to know.
