Thanks, Delta Bravo...I knew that.... I just got lazy and mis-spelled...maybe was because of being road weary after 300 Plus road miles yesterday. Boy was Yellowstone ever crowded. No camping unless you had previously reserved a space. We didn't....Traffic was intense but it was Labor Day.

Removed the rear seats and started getting ready to install the enclosure for six GPL-30HTs and Outback inverter.

I changed the oil and filters in my truck today.

The truck recommends changing the oil about every 10,000 miles, I change it every 5000.

The last picture shows how much oil it used in the last 5000 miles carrying my camper.

I'm pretty impressed that's all the oil it used considering it has 225,000 miles on it.

Got truck back from body shop that installed new roof skin.
Spent good part of the day reinstalling interior I had removed (headliner, visors, trim etc).
Another day rewiring, CB, custom interior light that controls exterior 3rd brake light functions, GPS ant etc. I have a lot of funny wiring.

Gosh- why is it leaking? Even heavy fog water dripping inside. Outside of the window rubber all that was visible was the bubbled paint.

Knew I had problem but extent surprised me.
Pretty sure cause, other than being a block from the Pacific, was bad glass replacement (scratched) few years ago.

I really wanted to attempt repair and if anyplace other than windshield would have.
However once I seen the required drilling of 100+ spot welds glad I had it done. 4 days in the shop-done, likely I'd still be drilling[emoticon]
Probably spend a few hours today putting all my 'stuff' back in the truck.

Quandary now is clearance/ID marker lights.
Truck is over 80" wide so required but really don't want to drill 15 holes in new roof.
Didn't have issue with them on original install but just don't want to do again.

Ya know...that would be simple- worst case might not satisfy letter of law (mounted high as practical) but at least postpone drilling holes in roof.

Got the wire bungs through the floor for the alternator charge circuit, 12volt 120amp feed to the truck bed as well as the 50 amp and 30 amp shore power inlet and outlet.

I mounted the enclosure to the four hard points for the rear seats and seat belts, started installing the three 20 amp 120v outlets on the front and both sides of the enclosure. Batteries soon.

Ford is releasing a Bronco Raptor in 2022 and it has the same lights in the grill as regular Raptors.
