Looks very sparkly Mark :gr8: I jet washed mine on the way home last night, in the queue before me were a few blokes on bikes who'd obviously been out playing cos they were very muddy. They jet washed their bikes then jet washed each other :gasp:

Thanks Rick, it’s certainly more sparkly than I was by the time I’d finished :D

Got the truck back from the sparky yesterday, had all the switches and dials wired up in my Raptor centre console so now I have 12v sockets, rear work lamp, working from spots, interior lamp in the rear, working rear wash wipe, volt meter and a rev counter (just for my own amusement)ImageImage

Went to put new slave cylinder on but got all the way to the point of taking the hose off and couldn't get spanner on so will have to purchase a proper spanner tomorrow now.

Slave cylinder all changed last nite so much easier when you have proper tools. Next on list is rear passenger door as doesn't open from inside, headlight adjusters and dash lights as hot main 1s by dials but nothing by heater switches etc.

Funny enough Dan, my Ranger has the same lighting issue as yours. I haven’t tried too hard to fix it as the centre console unit seems to be a sealed item with no access to the lights.
What I have found useful though is a well aimed blow with the fist in the general area of the faulty light and it comes back on for a while.
I don’t recommend this to everyone as it does require a certain amount of skill. But you could certainly try it. :lol:


I got a truck and no one's trying to kill me, its a good day.
