Re: Wife Wanted Me Out of the House, So Off to the Garage and Clean it Out
I had a busy day and it was run 20 miles north and pick up a wheel and rear bumper for my 2004 Dodge Ram 2500. I then went to to the tire local tire store and had a new tire, valve stem and balance done to the wheel. Once that was done I went home and started to work. First thing was to take the old spare tire out of the under bed carrier and move to the other truck and put it in the bed for now, I then scrubbed the replacement spare tie and wheel and polished the chrome. I then put the new replacement spare into the tire carrier and of course I get dust all over the tire.
I now one item completed and I thought about it and I started up the air compressor after thinking I might not do the dented up bumper but then I said oh the heck with it I am not tired and I want something to do. I then tore into the old bumper and removed it and then cleaned where the bumper goes on the truck body and rear frame and prepped the new bumper by scrubbing and applying a coat of wax, then onto the truck the replacement junkyard bumper went on the truck.
Once finished with the replacement bumper I then went back to dented bumper and removed the brackets and plastic from it has I want to save the plastic parts for if I ever damage the plastic on the truck I simply pop the damaged plastic off and install it on the truck and I have it on hand.
