Default SOOO BIG's latest projects.

With bumpers, right front fender and hood re-painted, restored balance of finish with clay-bar. Re-chroming project
completed with re-installation of 3/8" chrome trim, re-positioned to clear the hood emblem SOOO BIG project at
Aubrey's shop was done last Friday only to discover starter inoperative.

After a long weekend I arranged a flat bed transport across town to a trusted mechanic on Monday.

Symptoms. No start.

Side issues. Fuel filler neck pinched during earlier fuel pump installation. Already arranged to be rectified.
And finally a clunking noise over bumps that'd been there for years.
I figured while I'm at it get it all done.

Good news.
It wasn't the starter but a bad fuse under hood.
The fuel filler neck was easily unkinked. So far I'm gettin' off cheap.

Fixing the clunk was a bit more extensive but entirely necessary.
Replaced inner tie rod ends (MOOG), rear shocks (Monroe) , control arm ball joint assemblies (MOOG) and realignment.
SOOO BIG rides and handles better than ever. Should have checked that clunk long ago.

Default Re: SOOO BIG's latest projects.

SOOO BIG's driver's side seat height adjust not working.
Wasn't used in over a year.
Checked dash box fuse. Yellow 20 amp at position 4. OK.
Removed under seat storage drawer to checked visible plugs.
Located behind front of lower seat frame and height motor. OK.

Removed driver's seat side plate. Activator switch plug disconnected.
Reconnected, driver's side seat height adjust re-functioning.
Apparently plug pulled loose when driver's seat storage drawer was
overstuffed hooking plug wires.

Conversely, driver's seat was set at the highest setting.
Readjusted to lowest setting created a bit more leg room,
better knee clearance under the steering wheel and
easier egress and exiting for this old geezer.
